Printed Circuit Boards
Printed circuit boards are made up of a non-conductive substrate laminated to copper sheets that have been etched with lines and pads to connect electronic components. These boards are used in nearly every computerized device available today and are made using a variety of plastics products, including specific polycarbonate substrates. Polycarbonate is commonly used in circuit board test fixtures, which are drilled in the same pattern as a circuit board to test its safety and efficiency.
One of the most commonly used polycarbonate substrates for printed circuit boards is a composite material made from woven fiberglass cloth and flame-resistant epoxy resin binder. This solution allows for the lamination of copper sheets on one or both sides. This material is ideal for printed circuit boards because of its incredibly low water absorption, electrical properties and high performance in both dry and humid conditions.
