Advanced Copper Foil Announces New Arsenic-Free Copper Foils


Reading time ( words)

Advanced Copper Foil and its supply partner, Circuit Foil Luxemburg, are pleased to introduce its new arsenic-free copper foils. Effective immediately, the ED copper foils TWLS and TZA will be manufactured as 100% arsenic-free. All traces of arsenic have been removed from the treatment process of these two copper foil types. There is no change in the base copper foil or its properties. As mandated by REACH and European Union Regulation, toxic substances such as arsenic, will be phased out. Arsenic is identified as a poisonous substance that can have severe adverse effects on humans and the environment.   

“The printed circuit board industry is constantly changing, and we are pleased to announce this significant development to our copper foil supply chain. The elimination of arsenic from the electronics industry is an important step towards environmental and social responsibility”, says Kieran Healy, managing director of Advanced Copper Foil.

Study on Application of Four-Wire and Four-Terminal Flying Probe Test Scheme

08/10/2018 | Jin Erbing, Joint Stars Technology Co., Ltd
With the four-wire and four-terminal flying probe test method, voids in the holes formed in the PCB due to process differences, thin copper, and poor conduction due to residual adhesive after laser drilling of the HDI board can be detected, and the circuit board guide can be solved. With the development of multilayer, high-density PCB layout, four-wire four-terminal flying probe testing will play an increasingly important role.
