PCB flexible materials
PCB flexible materials, also known as flexible dielectric substrates, are the foundation of flexible printed circuit boards (flex PCBs). These materials provide the flexibility and durability required for flex PCBs to conform to various shapes and withstand repeated bending.
DuPont™ Pyralux® materials have been the foundation of the flex circuit industry for decades. They comprise a broad offering of materials used to make circuitry in a wide variety of applications. These materials enable the design and manufacture of complex circuits for greater functional capacity and miniaturization, while maintaining high reliability.
The ESPANEX series
The ESPANEX series of copper-clad laminated sheets for flexible PCBs was developed using Nippon Steel Chemical's proprietary technology. This series stands out for its lack of adhesive due to the utilization of low-expansion polyimide. ESPANEX has garnered an excellent reputation as an essential component in circuit boards for mobile phones and other devices. Also in drive circuit boards for LCDs (liquid crystal displays), where high performance and reliability are paramount. As semiconductors progress towards higher densities and integration levels, demands are becoming increasingly stringent with regard to rates of dimensional change, thermal resistance, electrical properties, mechanical properties, and other factors. ESPANEX, which enhances these characteristics, has capitalized on this trend and now holds a significant share of the global two-layer CCL market.
