What Should You Know About Epoxy Laminates?

In PCB manufacturing, the base material of epoxy laminates is reinforced with glass fiber or paper fiber as filler. Besides, epoxy resin and the copper foil are pressed over it to get copper clad laminates. Hence, they are called “glass epoxy copper clad laminates” or “paper epoxy copper clad laminates”. It all depends on the type of filler used. During the epoxy laminations process, the epoxy resin is cured by the action of heat, pressure and the added catalyst. The final product is a thermosetting resin which is neither feasible nor soluble.
