FLEXCON: Polyimide Films

August 29, 2011

THERMLfilm® HT™ is a new advanced line of high-temperature polyimide films reportedly able to withstand the fluctuating temperatures, abrasion and chemicals inherent in the printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing process. The new product line will be available worldwide to manufacturers that need high-density barcode and alphanumeric PCB labels, including military contractors and manufacturers of electronics, aerospace, and automotive goods.

All THERMLfilm HT products are reportedly tested to ensure PCB labels will remain adhered and legible throughout the manufacturing process. A specially formulated topcoat provides a smooth printing surface. According to the company, the product is an ideal substrate for high-density information such as data matrix codes, and provides consistent ANSI scanability. In addition, the static dissipating qualities of the topcoat minimize the risk of print voids to ensure optimum print quality and consistency.
