Applications of Nelco N8000 Cyanate Ester

Cyanate ester resins are not new to the industry, but their applications were previously limited. The cyanate ester process is the most effective in eliminating microcracks and improving electrical properties. We typically process this material through standard FR-4 processes. It is often helpful in the construction of multilayer printed circuit boards. The process also provides superior mechanical and thermal properties.

The low-pressure cyanate ester lamination process limits the amount of energy stored in the laminate, released during thermal cycling, and exposed to caustics. The energy released is responsible for various failures in the composite. The high-pressure cyanate ester lamination procedure results in a low Tg. The re-curing temperature should be 260 degrees Celsius or 240 degrees Celsius. The stackup design should ensure the composite’s signal integrity and power performance.

This process has low-pressure cyanate ester lamination. Because of its low-pressure nature, the laminate limits the amount of energy stored in the composite. Therefore, we release this energy during the curing process and caustics. This release of energy can lead to various failure mechanisms in multilayer cyanate ester printed circuit boards.
