Adhesive & Resin Blocking, Conformable Release Film
OVERVIEW

For Lamination of Coverlays and Flexible Circuits

Pacoflex•Ultra is specifically engineered for the Lamination of Cover-Layers to Flexible Printed Circuit Boards. This product is a robust highly Conformable Release Film which, when exposed to heat and pressure, becomes extremely soft and pliable for superior conformance to intricate flex part topographies. The soft heat-activatable hydraulic center is application-designed to consistently reduce excessive “squeeze-out” and effectively blocks adhesive or resin flow into unwanted areas.

ADVANTAGES

  • Total Elimination of Entrapped Air between the Cover-Layer and the Circuitized Base Laminate.
  • PacoFlex•Ultra delivers discreet hydraulic force to reliably drive the Cover-Layer into complete
    side-wall conformance with the Circuitized Base Laminate.
  • Finite Control of Adhesive Flow.
  • Due to the optimized surface, and superior conformability, PacoFlex•Ultra dams back acrylic and
    epoxy adhesives from flowing into Cover-Layer clearance areas.
  • Quick, Easy, Contaminate-Free Release
  • Two-Ply polymeric structure with “functional” release on the matte opaque side is positioned
    adjacent to the circuit leaving the other shiny side to be easily positioned adjacent to the
    PACOPAD® conformable driver sheet which is easily determined by operator use.
  • Reduces mechanical distortion.
  • PacoFlex•Ultra “locks-in” around the Flexible components to minimize distortion due to Heat
    and Pressure.
  • PacoFlex•Ultra conforms closely to the part surface without excessive flow-out from the
    sheet. Deformed Circuits, Crushed Pads, and Glossy Pressure Spots are eliminated, resulting in
    repeatable Pad Registration due to the engineered z-axis characteristics of the base hydraulic
    film.
  • Allows for Reduced Lamination Pressure in some applications.
  • PacoFlex•Ultra , used with PACOPADS® Pressure Diffuser Pads, delivers unmatched Z-axis
    pressure equalization. These two companion products conform and stabilize the Flexible
    components allowing the user to reduce the Hydraulic Force by up to 30%.
