PARK ELECTROCHEMICAL CORP. ANNOUNCES INTRODUCTION OF ITS NEW N7000-3 POLYIMIDE LAMINATE MATERIAL FOR USE IN SPACE AND OTHER APPLICATIONS

Melville, New York, Thursday, November 10, 2011……Park Electrochemical Corp. (NYSE - PKE) announced the introduction of its new N7000-3 laminate material to complement its existing N7000-3 prepreg. N7000-3 laminate joins Park’s existing family of polyimide laminate and prepreg materials, offering a prepreg and laminate system, with a UL 94V-1 designation, that meets the NASA requirements of no visible bromine. This new advanced material system is available globally.

Park’s new N7000-3 laminate material is a high-Tg polyimide using toughened resin chemistry. This material is designed for use in a wide variety of applications that require fine geometry, multilayer construction or extreme reliability. N7000-3 has been available since 1999 as a prepreg material for use with Park’s N7000-2 HT laminate. With the introduction of N7000-3 laminate material, Park’s electronics customers will now be able to fabricate printed circuit boards with a pure N7000-3 construction.
