What are PCB Laminates?
A printed circuit board provides a base for electronic components of an integrated circuit, through which electricity is conducted via copper coatings acting as wires. To ensure proper conduction, lamination in the form of a substrate is applied to the PCB. The lamination process involves melting layers of PCB core, copper, and prepreg in a press to ensure board uniformity during the heating and cooling process. The temperature and pressure when laminating the board depend on variables like thickness and materials. Prepreg, made of glass fiber, is the reinforcing material inside a copper-clad laminate. The variety of laminate used depends on the type and purpose of the circuit board and can affect the printed circuit board’s performance. Important PCB laminate characteristics to consider include size, appearance, dielectric constant (Dk), fire retardant, and loss factor to name a few. Laminates are assigned letters and numbers based on these characteristics.
