Melville, New York, Monday, February 27, 2012ˇ­ˇ­Park Electrochemical Corp. (NYSE ¨C PKE) announced the introduction of its new N6800-22 High Speed/Low Loss and N6800-22 SI® High Speed/Very Low Loss digital electronic materials products. N6800-22 and N6800-22 SI are available globally in both prepreg and laminate forms.

N6800-22 and N6800-22 SI offer very advanced electrical performance and very high reliability. N6800-22 has a dissipation factor (Df) of 0.0055 at 10 GHz and 50% resin content (RC) using Open Resonator testing methodology. N6800-22 SI has a Df of 0.0040 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 loss. N6800-22 and N6800-22 SI are designed for multiple high temperature lead-free assemblies and high layer count printed circuit board designs which require very high levels of reliability. N6800-22 and N6800-22 SI are highly CAF resistant, high Tg materials with low Z-axis expansion. These products have UL 94V-0 designations, meet IPC-4101/91 specifications and are RoHS compliant.

Brian Shore, Park's President and CEO, said, "I would like to take this opportunity to recognize publicly our R&D groups in Arizona and Singapore for their work in developing our new N6800-22 and N6800-22 SI products, as well as our recently introduced N4800-20 and N4800-20 SI products. Thank you for your fine work in developing these high speed, low loss and very low loss products which may prove to be important products for Park for years to come. Well done."
