Pacothane HT1500 Smooth
High Performance Release Film
For Lamination of Rigid Multilayer, Flexible Circuits and Unclad Laminates

PACOTHANE HT1500 SMOOTH – is designated for those Pacothane release film applications requiring a lower Rz value for less matte image transfer on the surface of the laminated substrate.


  • Easy, contaminant-free release from resins and separator plates.
  • Proven worldwide performance and acceptance since 1984.
  • Operating temperatures up to 400°F / 204°C for up to 2 hours.
  • 50% thicker than other release films for easier handling.
  • Smooth surface finish, with superior conformal properties.
  • Free of embedded impurities.
  • Extremely low X-Y axis shrinkage and reduced static potential.
  • Essentially inert: no out-gassing, no plate residue, no interlaminar adhesion influence, no vacuum system contamination.
  • Environmentally friendly: no Ozone Depleting Chemicals, no Flourines.
  • Available in custom-sized tooled sheets and rolls shipped ĎJust-in-TimeÓ from exclusive local Distributors around the world.

  • This film is the preferred choice for those applications where the laminated surface requires a minimal matte finish. The film is designed with a lower Rz value to minimize image transfer on to the surface while consistently containing resin squeeze out.
  • Rigid Multilayer Panels: To contain resin squeeze-out; to buffer and protect copper from damaged plates; to minimize stress effect from aluminum plates; to reduce frequency of plate cleaning; to increase plate life; to prevent press pads from sticking to plates or bonding to tooling pins.
    (See lay-up recommendation)
  • Flex, Rigid-flex Panels: To contain adhesive squeeze-out; for complete conformity to part topography; to provide easy separation of conformal hydraulics and driver pads from PCB surfaces.
