TerraGreen®

Halogen-free, Very Low Loss Laminate and Prepreg

TerraGreen® laminate materials exhibit exceptional electrical properties which are very stable over a broad frequency and temperature range.

Thermal Performance

Tg: 200°C
Td: 390°C

Electrical Performance

Dk: 3.44
Df: 0.0039

Industry Approvals

IPC-4103 /17
IPC-4101 /102
UL - File Number E41625

TerraGreen® is engineered for such highperformance applications as power amplifier boards for LTE base stations, internet infrastructure and cloud computing. TerraGreen® features a Dielectric Constant (Dk) that is stable between -55°C and 125°C, up to 20 GHz.

TerraGreen® is a lead-free assembly material and is easy to process. This high-performance material utilizes a short-lamination cycle; the product is easy to drill, does not require plasma desmear, and the prepreg shelf life is similar to FR-4 materials. TerraGreen® is suitable for high-layer count, high-speed digital backplanes and is compatible with Isola’s FR-4 materials for hybrid designs.

TerraGreen® meets UL 94 V-0 and is halogen free.
