(2) Excellent peel strength;
(3) Extraordinary low loss factor;
(4) low water absorption rate;
(5) Enhanced surface smoothness.
(6) General Parameters: Dk (Dielectric Constant) : 3.5 Df (Dissipation Factor) : 0.0018
Application of RF-35 material:
(1) power amplifier;
(2) filters and connectors;
(3) Passive components.
RF-35 is an organic-ceramic laminate material in the ORCER of TACONIC products. It is a reinforced microwave material based on woven glass cloth. RF-35 is a combination of TACONIC's ceramic filling technology and glass fiber coated PTFE technology.
RF-35 is the best choice for low cost, high volume commercial microwave and wireless frequency applications.
RF-35 1/2 OZ, 1 OZ or 2 OZ copper foil boards offer excellent peel strength, providing rework at any time.
The glass transition temperature of RF-35 exceeds 600 °F (315 °C).
The ultra-low water absorption and low loss factor of RF-35 minimizes phase shift in the frequency range of use.
The dimensional stability of the RF-35 stems from the use of woven glass cloth in its design and development.
The fire rating of RF-35 was tested in accordance with IPC-TM-650, and the flammability test results were V-0.
The standard size of RF-35 material is 36 inch * 48 inch, and the standard thickness are 10mil (0.254mm), 20mil (0.508mm), 30mil (0.762mm) and 60mil (1.524mm).
