Many different PCB-laminates can be used. Below is the list and links to data sheets for the most commonly used types.  For further information web links to at least 12 pcb laminate manufacturers are listed after the data sheet links followed by  prepreg properties, prepreg weaves,  standard base laminate copper thicknesses,  and properties for laminates with lower  Dk of approx. 3.5.

  • Dk= Dielectric Constant          
  • DF= Dissipation Factor        
  • CTE= Coefficient of Thermal Expansion
  • Tg= Glass Transition Temperature         
  • Td= Decomposition Temperature
  • WA= Water Absorption
