ESA approval for Ventec VT-901 material in ACB Belgium rigid & flex-rigid production
With high Td (395oC), a Tg of 250oC and Low-Axis CTE (50), Ventec’s VT-901 polyimide material provides the extremely high reliability performance demanded by ACB’s flex & flex-rigid and HDI PCB manufacturing process that meets ESA requirements.
Ventec manufactures all VT-901 polyimide using specially designed treaters with multiple stage filtration systems and 100% Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) for prepreg FOD-control. The same specialist equipment is used for the production of thin-core laminates for use in the most demanding space and aerospace PCB applications. ACB’s state-of-the-art PCB manufacturing facility in Dendermonde (Belgium) and the AS9100 Rev D accreditation of Ventec’s manufacturing and distribution facilities, position both companies as market-leaders within the space and aerospace electronics supply chain.
Joachim Verhegge, ACB’s Product Engineering Manager, says: ‘Meeting and exceeding the highest possible standards of quality and performance is our highest priority. We are pleased to receive ESA approval for the use of Ventec’s material in our designs and look forward to continuing to work closely with ESA in meeting their requirements.’
Mark Goodwin, Ventec COO EMEA & USA, commented: ‘I’m delighted with our long-term technology partnership with ACB, assisting them through close cooperation to further strengthen their position for aerospace-standard solutions and finished PCBs. The ESA approval demonstrates the thermal robustness of Ventec VT-901 polyimide and its suitability for use in high reliability rigid and flex rigid multi-layers in the demanding aerospace sector.’
