Dear all customers, Kindly reminding that the Chinese festival holiday in Weller is 1st Feb to 19th Feb and production will be closed then, please schedule your order beforehand to avoid any production delay due to our holiday.

PCB Base Material


Normally,all PCB base material used by Weller conform to IPC4101( specification for base materials for rigid and multilayer printed boards ) and UL certificated.

The table below is an extract of certain characteristics from IPC-4101 classifications, highlighting some of the details already referenced.

Some key material characteristics

  • CTE – Z axis(Co-efficient of thermal expansion): This is a measure of how much the base material will expand when heated. Measured as PPM/degree C (both before and after Tg) and also in % over a temperature range. Typical Low CTE High Tg PCB Material EM-827 827B
  • Td (Decomposition temperature): This is the temperature at which material weight changes by 5%. This parameter determines the thermal survivability of the material.
  • Tg (Glass transition temperature): The temperature at which the material stops acting like a rigid material and begins to behave like a plastic / softer.
  • T260 (Time to delamination): This is the time it take for the base material to delaminate when subjected to a temperature of 260 degrees C.
  • T288 (Time to delamination): This is the time it take for the base material to delaminate when subjected to a temperature of 288 degrees C.
  • Dk (Dielectric constant): The ratio of the capacitance using that material as a dielectric, compared to a similar capacitor which has a vacuum as its dielectric.
  • CTI (Comparative tracking Index): A measure of the electrical breakdown properties of an insulating material. It is used for electrical safety assessment of electrical apparatus. The normal CTI material as High CTI CEM-3 equivalent to FR-4.0: S2126, High thermal resistance: High CTI S3116.
