What’s the difference between Adhesiveless and Adhesive Polyimide (PI)?

Today I’d like to share what’s the difference between Adhesive PI and Adhesiveless PI.

Item 1: Adhesiveless PI stack up

As you can see in above stack up, there is no adhesive connect the Copper layer and Polyimide.

There are four advantages of adhesiveless PI:

  1. Thinner Thickness

As you know, the thickness of adhesive is around 12.5um, 15um, 20um. If you have strict requirement for the whole board thickness, it will be a good choice to use adhesiveless PI.

2.Better Bending

Adhesiveless substrate is thinner than adhesive substrate, so it’s bending is better.

3.  Heat resistance

Due to the adhesive have poor performance in heat resistance, so without the adhesive, the adhesiveless base material have better heat resistance.

Under the same temperature, such as 200℃,the tearing strength of adhesiveless PI change a little. But the tearing strength of adhesive PI material rapidly decrease.

4.  Dimensional stability

The dimension of adhesiveless board change very small when the temperature increase. Even under the temperature of 300℃, it’s dimensional changing rate is no more than 0.1%.

Good dimensional stability will be great help for fine wiring process.

5.  Chemical Resistance

The adhesiveless substrate have good performance of chemical Resistance, it’s tearing strength have no obvious change with time increased.

The adhesive base material has poor chemical resistance, so it’s tear strength decreases greatly with the increase of time.

The only disadvantage for adhesiveless PI is it’s a little expensive than adhesive PI.

Item 2: Adhesive PI stack up

As you can see, the thickness of  2 layer adhesiveless FPC is 0.19+/-0.03mm.

The thickness of  2 layer adhesive FPC is 0.23+/-0.03mm.

If you need thicker thickness, the adhesive PI might can meet your requirement, the cost will be much lower than increase copper thickness or PI thickness.

There are two mainly advantages for adhesive PI:

  1. Thicker thickness.
  2. Cheaper price.

Anyway, if your project need thinner thickness or smaller line width and space (0.05mm), adhesiveless PI will be the best choice. Welcome to contact us at sales@bestfpc.com if you need to know more details.

What is the Dual access flexible circuit?

Have you ever been heard about the dual access flexible circuit? Why it named dual access flexible circuit? After you read my e-mail, you will find the answer.

Dual access flexible circuit board is similar to double side FPC, but it has different stack up to double side FPC. Why it named dual access FPC? Dual access can access to both side by copper, so it named the dual access flexible circuit. Dual access flex PCB only have 1 layer copper, and coverlayer on both side. They can connect both side by layout through coverlayer opening, and do not need to drill the holes like 2 layers flex PCB to connect both side.

Dual access flexible circuit samples picture:

Working principle: The coverlayer play the role as an insulator, the copper is a very good kind of conductor. One side is anode, and the other side is cathode. If they the current flow, they form a closed loop circuit.

Stack up of dual access flex circuit:

Dual access circuit advantages:

  1. It can be connected to both side through copper, and do not need to make a through hole. If it is 2 layers FPC. You have to make a through hole to connect both side.

2. The appearance will be more beautiful than 2 layers flex PCB. Because we can conduct by trace, it will be more beautiful than through holes to conduct.

Dual access circuit disadvantages:

  1. Complex production process: The production process is similar to 2 layers flex circuit, but it will be more difficult and complicate compared with 2 layers flex PCB. It is easy to scrap. And many factories can not make dual access circuit board due to production technique.
  2. Easy to wrinkle. Because the dual access is very thin. Only one copper and two coverlayers, it will be easy to tear up. When it comes to laminate process, is also very easy to laminate wrinkles and blister.

Measures China took to fight against the COVID-19

China’s fight against COVID-19 epidemic has achieved victory at this stage. Infected patients were found in 337 cities in China but now only 28 cities remaining patients in cure. So far till March 31st, there were 82545 confirmed cases in China, while 76225 cured and only 3006 remaining now. Most importantly, many of the areas finds only one figure number increase and others stop increasing for quite some days. If the first half of COVID-19 fighting is inside China national territory, the second half will be on the international stages while noticeable growth on COVID-19 infected cases are spreading all over the world now.

Best Technology has been collecting the measures in China on epidemic controls so in order to provide a more objective and useful reference for overseas professionals which we hope they could refer to and protect better themselves from the COVID-19.

Governmental Measures

During the height of the outbreak, trains didn’t stop at the disease’s epicenter, Wuhan

Wuhan trains

Trains, as well as other tightly packed forms of transportation, can serve as vectors of illness. The more people, the more closely packed, and the more poorly ventilated the space, you can imagine that’s a bad situation because there are a ton of people, they’re in very close quarters, and they’re a totally captive audience. Cutting off transportation was considered on the top three measures to contain the spread of the virus.

China built new hospitals in a rush, with workers toiling night and day to get them done.

China Newly-built Hospitals
China Newly-built Hospitals

China built two new 1,000-1,300-bed hospitals to fight the corona virus, one created in six days, and the second in 15 days, using prefabricated modules.

Corona virus testing was easily accessible and free

In China, patients who were confirmed to have the corona virus were either sent to an isolation center or hospital. The government also made clear that testing for the new virus was free, and COVID-19-related charges that weren’t covered by a person’s insurance would be paid for by the government.

The country implemented large-scale contact tracing in the early 2000s

Contact tracing
Contact tracing

During the SARS outbreak in 2002-2003, China set up large-scale surveillance systems that included contact tracing, a front-line public-health strategy that involves identifying and following up with people who may have come into contact with an infected person.

The country postponed non-urgent medical care and moved many doctor’s visits online. Not all patients were given the critical care they needed during the outbreak, though

Doctor's online visit
Doctor’s online visit

In China, elective surgeries and other non-critical doctors’ visits were delayed, and many medical services were moved online. Someone in one place said 50% of their consultations are now done online; they just moved a whole bunch of what was normally done physically online to be able to keep the regular health services going.

Centers for Disease Control exploring a way of therapeutic plan combing Traditional Chinese medicines and Western medicines.

The combination of Traditional Chinese medicines and Western medicines had been proven effective on the SARS fights. Doctors of traditional Chinese medicines had volunteered for consulting and participating into the virus fights.

China used technology that aims to trace every single COVID-19 case

Civilian Measures

Traditional epidemic prevention manufacturers speed up and similar production lines integrating to make more necessary products

mask production line

Many medicinal and pharmaceutical substances manufacturers launched automation assemble lines and increase manpower to speed up the mass production of necessary drugs, masks, ventilators to meet the huge consumption during virus fighting. Many of these companies arranged 24-hour shifts for maximizing the production.

Meanwhile other manufactures such as automotive OEM had change their assemble line into masks productions machines.

At the blast of COVID-19, returning Chinese carrying back epidemic products from overseas as much as they can

Returning travelers carried extra masks on their flights back to China and donated them to the hospital and governments in need. Some overseas Chinese unions also had helped ordering these products and sending to China.

Chinese citizens did their part to curb the disease’s trajectory on an individual level, too, though we may never know the true scale of their complaints or sacrifices in this outbreak.

China's road
China’s road

In contrast to reports in the US of people clamoring over the last hand-sanitizer, the attitude of people in China was that they were all in this together. People stay at home for self-quarantine, lockdown and response to the postpone returning to work and school.

People who thought they might have the corona virus could go to one of the nation’s many fever clinics

People who thought they had the novel corona virus in China would often be sent to a special fever clinic, which have been widespread since the country dealt with an aggressive SARS outbreak in 2002. Their temperature would be taken, and they’d discuss their symptoms, medical history, travel history, and any prior contact with anyone infected with a doctor.

If necessary, patients might receive a CT scan, which is one way to do an initial screening for COVID-19. Each machine did maybe 200 a day. 5-10 minutes/scan. A typical hospital in the West does one or two an hour.

People quickly shifted jobs in order to assist during the outbreak

volunteers

When it came to the non-medical response, there was a nationwide sense of solidarity with Hubei. Other provinces sent 40,000 medical workers to the center of the outbreak, many of whom were volunteers.

Workers in transportation, agriculture, and clerical positions were encouraged to new positions such as delivery, courier and epidemic prevention manufacturing, too.

While staying home, it’s been relatively easy for Chinese people to get extra food and supplies

Enough food
Enough food

China essentially mandated a country-wide shut down, demanding that every Chinese resident stay home until the curve was flattened. But in West, unlike China, a country-wide shutdown would be difficult to enforce.

Fifteen million people had to order food online. It was delivered. Yes, there were some screw-ups. But few said: every now and again there’s something missing from a package, but food supply is pretty much normal via ordering online.

We know it’s difficult for most of people around the word to find protection devices, such as face mask, Non-surgical isolation gown , Medical gowns, protective coveralls, Surgical Cap, Surgical Dress , Medical gloves, Safety Goggles, Surgical Helmet, infrared thermometers, please contact our sales, we will be glad to support you.

The Future of Flexible Circuits

As predicted by Best Technology Co.,Ltd., the market for flexible circuits is going to continue to expand steadily in the future, just as it has been doing for the past three decades. The reasons for this are not hard to find, as, on one hand, flexible circuits continue to support the existing technology so important to different industries, while on the other hand, advanced flexible circuits are able to comfortably meet the futuristic demands being made by up-coming industries, including the military, avionics, aerospace, telecommunication, consumer electronics, medical, and automotive.

One of the latest applications that flexible circuits have independently triggered as an explosion is the wearable electronics market. Wearing electronics on the body essentially calls for comfort, and flexible circuits guarantee this. Some examples of wearable electronic applications prevalent on the market are wrist-worn activity and body function monitors, foot-worn sensors, wearable baby monitors, medical sensors, pet monitors, and electronics on worn clothing. By bending and forming flexible circuits to suit the curve of the human body, the applications provide comfort for long wear and use.

Since establishment on June 28, 2006, Best Technology has been dedicated to being your best partner of flexible circuits solutions for our customers. We prefer to lose quantity rather than lose quality and with adhering to the company culture for so many years, more and more customers have been attracted by us. We are so grateful for what we have obtained so far and we will insist on providing the most satisfactory products and services for our customers. Welcome to Best Technology.

When You Want Your Flex Circuit Boards on Time

If you have a new product launch on the books, and it’s going to be a big project. Your PR department is already spinning the press release, and your marketing department has been laying the groundwork for months. Suddenly, your flex circuit board vendor says that they’re running two weeks behind. That’s not a problem, is it?

Best Technology Team Back to Office on Feb 5th

Hello Everybody! We had backed to office on Feb 5! (The ninth day of first month of Chinese Lunar Calendar)

It’s a lucky and sunny day! We had 12 people backed to office (excludes people in factory) and according to Chinese culture, number 12 means every month will be lucky and full of successful!

Today one more girl back, tomorrow another guy will back. It’s a normal thing people didn’t back to office on the first day because there’re always something unexpected, such as Wedding, etc. In 2017, we had saw the new baby born of Tiffany’s, wedding party of Hanna, and this year we will see more baby and wedding.

Everybody was so happy to see each other after 2 weeks Spring Festival and eat the wedding candies, as well as checking and replying emails. We have a simple and colorful lunch together and in the afternoon went to Phoenix Mountain Forest for hiking. This is a traditional activity on the first working day after New Year vacation in our company. We can talk to each other under the open air, everybody shared their stories and we always laugh when heard something interested happened during holiday.
