    Introducing TLA
    Taconic has over 35 years of experience coating fiberglass fabric with PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). This enables Taconic to manufacture copper clad PTFE/woven glass laminates with exceptionally well controlled electrical and mechanical properties.

    These attributes effectively extend the usefulness of these laminates to X-Band and above.
    The dielectric constant (DK) is 2.62 with a tolerance of ± 0.05. The dissipation factor is approximately 0.0012 when measured at 1.9 GHz.

    TLA laminates can be sheared, drilled, milled, and plated using standard methods for PTFE/woven fiberglass materials. The laminates are dimensionally stable, and exhibit virtually no moisture absorption during fabrication processes.

    TLA laminates are generally ordered clad on one or both sides with 1 oz. reverse treated electrodeposited copper foil. Please contact our Customer Service Department for alternate claddings.

    Typical applications for TLA laminates include mobile communication systems.

    The copper-clad laminates meet the latest revision of IPC-4103.

    TLA laminates are tested in accordance with IPC-TM-650. A Certificate of Compliance containing actual test data accompanies each shipment.
