 Drilling Backup Material

LC25 Backup material made of MDF

LC25 is a backup material made of MDF (medium density fiber). It is a cheap backup material used for mechanical drilling of printed circuit boards. If you have higher requirements regarding quality we recommend our product PHP (phenolic paper) and MP6 (melamine coated wood fiber plate with high density (HDF)).

MP6 Backup material made of melamine coated HDF 

This backup material MP6 consists of a wood fiber plate with high density (HDF). In addition the plate is coated and cured with melamine resin on both sides. The melamine coating guarantees a high surface hardness, which gives a good drilling quality.

  • minimized burr
  • reduced smearing
  • minimized roughness in the hole wall

Routing

 Routing entry board of phenolic paper, 0.5 mm or 0.8 mm thick

These routing boards have two main purposes:

a) Protection of the circuit surface
Phenolic paper 0.8 mm thick is suitable for most applications

b) Protection of the edges from damage caused by bulging
We recommend cover layers of glass fabric laminate (FR4) 0.3 mm thick for processing soft materials (e.g. PTFE base materials)

MSC delivers all routing materials cut to specification and, on request, with extra cleaned surfaces.

Punching

 Cutting boards for strip steel tools

 MSC offers a tool-protecting cutting board made of high-density, calendared EPS for stamping flexible circuits with strip steel tools. Important: this material does not fibrillate, meaning your tools last longer.

Surface/Color: red-brown, smooth, lint-free and abrasion-resistant

Hardness: > 60 Shore D

Thickness: 0.70 mm

Delivery format: according to customer specification

Test Fixtures

FR4 plates with tighter thickness tolerance

With our precision surface grinding machine FR4 plates can be grinded with very tight thickness tolerances.

Maximum machine width of 1350 mm with three sanding stations on hardened steel rollers.

Achievable thickness tolerance ± 50 µm.

Example: FR4 unclad in 4.00 mm

The normal thickness tolerance for that product is 4.00 ± 0.30 mm.

By grinding with our machine we can deliver 4.00 ± 0.05 mm.  

Cut to size available.
