In this article, we’ll explain what TU-662 laminate is. Why it’s so popular in automotive applications, and what types of applications are possible with TU-662 laminate.
What is TU-662?
TU-662 is a versatile, high-performance material that can be used in a variety of industries. It is manufactured by Taiwan Union Technology Corporation and is commonly used in automotive and consumer electronics.
TU-662 laminate and prepreg is an advanced material that can be produced with different specifications depending on your needs. The product has high thermal resistance, low shrinkage, high dimensional stability, good mechanical properties, and is easy to process. This makes it ideal for use in many industries.
This laminate and prepreg has many great characteristics that are useful in manufacturing your printed circuit boards. These are few characteristics that TU-662 possesses:
TU-662 laminate and prepreg have radio frequency characteristics that make it ideal for use in high-frequency systems. The material maintains its mechanical properties at frequencies. It has a high dielectric constant, which means it can be used in a wide variety of applications.
This means that the material can be used for RFID tags, RFID labels, and RFID cards. Also, other applications require high-frequency and high-power electromagnetic wave shielding.
The epoxy resin of TU-662 laminate and prepreg has a mid-glass transition temperature (Tg). This is ideal for manufacturing printed circuit boards. The epoxy resin can maintain its structural integrity at room temperature and higher temperatures.
Mid Tg laminate and prepreg like TU-662 is recommended for general use in any new projects that do not have any special requirements. It has good resistance to moisture and heat, which makes it a good choice for applications requiring long-term performance.
High Thermal Reliability
This laminate and prepreg has a high thermal reliability characteristic. The thermal conductivity can effectively improve the thermal resistance of the overall structure. This means that TU-662 can be used in a variety of environments and conditions.
UV-block is an important characteristic of TU-662 laminate and prepreg. It is a measure of the material’s ability to block ultraviolet rays. If a material has a UV-block characteristic, it will not be affected by the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This can cause damage to many materials.
The UV block is an additional coating that is applied to the surface in order to prevent or reduce the amount of ultraviolet light which is harmful to the product.
This indicates that the laminate is able to be processed in an Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) system. This means that it can be inspected and passed through a machine that uses a laser to inspect the quality of the product.
This laminate and prepreg is compatible with the AOI process. This means that it can be used to produce parts that will pass inspection.
This is an excellent laminate and prepreg for manufacturing printed circuit boards. It has many great features that make it the perfect choice for this process.
Lead-Free Process Compatible
The TU-662 is a lead-free process-compatible solder paste with low melt to support soldering on the printed circuit boards and other components. This solder paste has been specially formulated for use in soldering applications. These are required to adhere to lead-free processes, according to RoHS directive. This solder paste can be used for both manual and automatic wave soldering processes.
The Anti-CAF property prevents a device from damaging its own circuitry. It does this by incorporating a feature that stops the device from being able to send signals when it detects damage to its own circuitry. This is a significant benefit for electronics manufacturing of printed circuit boards because it ensures that devices will continue to function as intended even after they are damaged or exposed to contaminants.
The TU-662 is an optical-grade silicone that provides UV-blocking properties to printed circuit boards. It is a high-quality coating for use on the surface of PCBs. This can be applied by either spray or dip methods. The TU-662 gives excellent adhesion to the substrate and has high thermal resistance, low dielectric constant, and good aging properties.
High Interlayer Bonding Strength
This laminate and prepreg has excellent mechanical strength and can be used in many applications. It is designed for interlayer bonding. With strong adhesion to resin, high elongation, and tensile strength, as well as excellent water resistance.
It is designed to minimize the amount of resin that flows into the space between the layers. It thus provides excellent interlayer bonding strength.
Low Moisture Absorption
Low Moisture Absorption
This means TU-662 will not absorb moisture from the air. This is especially important for electronics manufacturing of printed circuit boards because when the material absorbs water, it can corrode and degrade.
This is important because it ensures that the solder joints on your printed circuit boards will remain strong and reliable over time. This helps prevent corrosion and reduces the likelihood of cracks or breaks.
Fluorescence for AOI
Fluorescence is the process of absorbing light and then re-emitting it at a longer wavelength. This process is used in AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) to detect defects in printed circuit boards.
The TU-662 can detect fluorescent markings on the PCB by using a dedicated UV lamp. The UV lamp helps to identify any defects on the PCB, such as missing or extra solder joints, incorrect components, and more.
PCB Thermal Resistance
Best Thermal Resistance
This is a measure of how well a material can resist heat flow. The lower the thermal resistance, the more effective the insulator becomes. This ensures that heat is not transferred from one area to another and helps to prevent overheating.
The TU-662 thermal pad is an excellent choice for printed circuit boards that need to maintain their performance in high temperatures. The pad’s thermal resistance can handle heat loads. That makes it ideal for use in applications where heat cannot be dissipated quickly enough by the underlying surface.
Superior Chemical Resistance
Chemical resistance is an important feature of a printed circuit board. It ensures that the board can withstand the environment it is installed in.
The material has high corrosion resistance and can withstand exposure to various acids, alkalis, and salts. This makes it an excellent choice for circuits that will be used in harsh environments. This material is used to provide insulation between rigid printed circuit boards and other structures such as metal cases or connectors. The material can withstand the harsh environments of typical PCBs.
Compatibility to FR-4
FR-4 Compatible Processing Conditions
FR-4 is a type of fiberglass-reinforced epoxy laminate. It’s used in printed circuit boards because it’s a high-temperature, flame-retardant, and heat-resistant material that is also lightweight, making it an ideal choice for industrial applications.
TU-662 is an FR-4-friendly laminating and prepreg material that is designed to meet the needs of the printed circuit board industry, providing easy processing and excellent dielectric properties.
Excellent Coefficient of Thermal Expansion
TU-662 laminate and prepreg have an excellent coefficient of thermal expansion. This characteristic allows the laminate to resist distortion during thermal cycling and heat aging, which are common in modern electronics. This can ensure that the laminates expand evenly during the cure.
The applications of TU-662 include:
