Insulectro and CAC Qualify New High Performance Copper Foils


Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, a leading supplier of materials for use in the PCB and Printed Electronics industries, announces new sources of high performance copper foil from supplier CAC Inc. to the PCB marketplace. Providing additional selections of copper allows fabricators to embrace the new opportunities presented by technology.

Addressing the needs of OEMs and fabricators requiring a variety of weights and treatments, CAC is broadening its supplier base of copper foils ranging from ¼ ounce (9 micron) to 5-ounces in weight. HTE foils with “High Performance” treatments to ultra-low profile coppers have been qualified by leading OEMs and laminators and are designed to cover everything from phenolic-filled epoxy and polyimides to the new advanced low loss resins.

Vice President of Sales for Insulectro Ken Parent commented, “Being able to deliver more copper foils to our customers is of great importance to us. Needs have evolved not only in regard to weights but to treatments as well. Our new copper foils from CAC will help our customers, especially those using filled systems and needing low profile copper for low loss high speed digital applications.”

All of Insulectro’s and CAC’s copper foils conform to the IPC standard for copper foil: IPC-4562A.

“Part of our job as distributor is to maintain a highly reliable supply chain of materials to our customers. That’s part of Insulectro’s service model,” Parent continued. “Thanks to CAC we can meet and exceed the requirements of our customers.”
