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.
