the Lamination of Flexible Circuits
Plus is a conformable Release Sheet that is specifically engineered for
use as a component of the Pacothane Plus System for the production of
flexible Printed Circuits (base stock, coverlay, and rigid-flex). Pacothane
Plus brings standardization and predictability to the flex laminating
process and offers tangible process advantages.
PACOTHANE PLUS delivers discreet, micro-applied, hydraulic force necessary
to drive laminate Components into tight conformity. It mirrors the part
topography to eliminate air entrapment under the Coverlay, between Circuits,
and assures excellent circuit side-wall Adhesion.
PACOTHANE PLUS "locks in" around the laminate components to
minimize distortion due to Heat and Pressure. In conjunction with PACOPADS
(see PACOPADS Product Information Bulletin),
the PACOPLUS System conforms in the Z axis only, eliminating the X-Y
axis distortion associated with commodity conformals.
of Adhesive Flow
PACOTHANE PLUS effectively dams back acrylic or epoxy adhesive flow
into pre-drilled or punched openings, as well as at rigid-flex interfaces.
Both sides of PACOTHANE PLUS provide quick, easy, and clean release
from all surfaces.
The PACOPLUS System, consisting of PACOTHANE PLUS Conformable Release
Sheet and PACOPADS Pressure Diffuser Press Pads, discreetly conforms
in the Z axis while equally distributing pressure across the panel surface.
Due to the superior, macropressure-equalizing characteristics of PACOPADS,
the same amount of hydraulic force is delivered with a lower nominal
