Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC Laminates can withstand heat and high-frequency electrical fields. As a result, they have a long history of use in power transformers, industrial electronics, commercial restaurant equipment, and other applications.
This blog post will detail why Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC Laminates are the best choice for your technology project; they offer decades of performance at an economical price.
These Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC Laminates are suitable for use at or above ambient temperatures. These laminates are ideal for use with alternating current up to a maximum frequency of 100 kHz when mounted on copper-clad substrates and 1 MHz on an aluminum-clad substrate. They have excellent electrical insulation properties and good mechanical toughness. In addition, they are resistant to high-frequency radiation, and we can solder them directly.
The first use of high-frequency laminates in power transmission was in the late 1930s. However, they appeared in applications that were not tied to specific frequencies such as heating elements, for a long time. The first documented use of these laminates for direct-current (DC) transmission was on the Rogers ALU transmitter at the Livermore Laboratories in 1947.
In the mid-1950s, these laminates were helpful in commercial equipment such as microwave oven door frames, which generated high frequencies since they were always on. The first application of these laminates to power transmission was on the Westinghouse Company’s 39 kV AC Rectifier Transformer at the Whitaker Power Station in 1955. The first application to DC transmission was a large BOSAN trolley for a coal mine in Germany, where it was in use for many years.
The main factor that has kept high-frequency laminates in the market is their strength, durability, and resistance to high-frequency radiation. As a result, the current demand for these laminates is increasing, with Rayming PCB & Assembly driving applications using high-frequency equipment.

High-frequency laminates can help in various power transmission applications requiring high-frequency performance characteristics.
Dielectric constant of 3.50 +/- .05:
The dielectric constant is one of the most important quality factors for a high-frequency laminate. The dielectric constant of a laminate can be varied to optimize the laminate properties for a specific application.
We measure dielectric constants by alternating current or direct current (AC/DC) methods.
Dissipation factor of .0013 at 10GHz:
The dissipation factor is a material property that indicates energy loss from an electromagnetic field. We measure the dissipation factors in a non-inductive field on a test sample with dimensions of .25 x .25 x .4 inches.
Dissipation factors for Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC Laminates are low compared to other materials such as RCC612 and 200CST. Therefore, we can reduce heat buildup and power losses by improving the dissipation factor.
Thermal conductivity of 1.44 W/m/K at 80°C:
This is the quantity of heat transmitted through the material in unit time when there is a temperature gradient perpendicular to the direction of heat flow.
Thermal conductivity is essential for thermal management and dissipation. This thermal conductivity of Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC Laminates is higher than the other processes, which improves thermal performance.
This helps minimize static electrical discharges and helps prevent fires by facilitating heat dissipation.
Thermally stable low profile and reverse treat copper foil:
The copper foil on the laminate has a low profile, delicate structure and etched on both sides. The copper foil helps improve the electrical insulation properties of Rogers RT/duroid 6035HTC High-Frequency Laminates.
Excellent thermal stability of traces:
The Rogers High-Frequency laminates have excellent thermal stability. They can maintain their dimensional stability up to and beyond 200°C. This is an essential property since no other material, including aluminum, can withstand these high temperatures without delamination or excessive warping. In some applications, the Rogers High-Frequency laminate is used without any copper foil, demonstrating excellent dimensional stability.
Lower insertion loss:
High-frequency laminates have lower attenuation than other materials, maintaining signal transmission at higher frequencies and reducing insertion loss. Rogers’ high-frequency laminates are to withstand the high-frequency fields that occur with direct current. It allows them to be effective in older systems. In addition, the materials have an excellent dielectric breakdown voltage, which means that the traces will not break down when a high voltage is applied.
Excellent high-frequency performance:
The Rogers high-frequency laminates have excellent performance when it comes to high-frequency applications. The material can withstand a magnetic field greater than 10kV/mm, which is higher than aluminum, copper, or other substrates commonly used in the electronics industry. It is essential in applications where high radiation levels are present, like in military and aviation technology. The material also has an excellent 9 kV/mm dielectric breakdown strength.
Improved dielectric heat dissipation:
Rogers’ high-frequency laminates are helpful in high-voltage and high-power applications where we subject them to large changes in temperature. The material’s ability to dissipate heat is essential to prevent damage to the conductors and traces. In addition, the high-frequency laminates can maintain their dimensional stability up to and beyond 200°C, while other materials like copper can only withstand temperatures up to 60°C.
When the temperature of the material increases, the material expands. If a copper-clad material were helpful, it would cause cracks in the copper foil due to the expansion of the laminate. The high-frequency laminates also do not show warping when exposed to elevated temperatures.
Rogers high-frequency laminates have excellent thermal stability. They can maintain their dimensional stability up to and beyond 200°C.
High thermal conductivity:
High-frequency laminate has excellent heat dissipation, allowing minimal heat buildup at the PCB. The material also exhibits very low thermal conductivity, allowing for better dissipation of the high-frequency heat.
High-frequency laminates are being used more often in high-frequency transmission because they allow for less attenuation when compared to other substrates. In addition, they have excellent electrical insulation properties, good mechanical toughness, and are resistant to high-frequency radiation. High-frequency laminates can be soldered directly, and some have an adhesive backing that allows for better bonding to terminals on a PCB.
