Melville, New York, February 23, 2015……Park Electrochemical Corp. (NYSE – PKE) announced the introduction of Meteorwave 3000 and Meteorwave 4000, the newest members of the Meteorwave product family and the newest additions to Park’s line of Very Low Loss and Ultra Low Loss electronic materials. Meteorwave 3000 and Meteorwave 4000 are available globally in both prepreg and laminate forms.
Meteorwave 3000 and Meteorwave 4000 offer very advanced electrical performance and very high reliability. Meteorwave 3000 has a dissipation factor (Df) of 0.0048 at 10 GHz and 50% resin content (RC) using Open Resonator testing methodology. Meteorwave 4000 has a Df of 0.0028 at 10 GHz and 50% RC using Open Resonator testing methodology. These very advanced electrical properties allow for high signal speed transfers and reduced transmission losses. Meteorwave 3000 and Meteorwave 4000 are designed for multiple high temperature lead-free assembly cycles and high layer count printed circuit board designs which require very high levels of reliability. Meteorwave 3000 and Meteorwave 4000 are highly CAF resistant, high Tg materials with low Z-axis expansion. These materials meet the Meteorwave family UL 94V-0 designation, 130C MOT Rating and IPC-4101/91 and /102 specifications and are RoHS compliant.
