EPON™ Resin CS-373

Description

EPON™ Resin CS-373 is a one-pack, dicy-free, brominated epoxy resin and curing agent solution supplied as 70% by weight solids in a blend of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) and propylene glycol monomethyl ether (PGME). This resin system meets the increasing demands of FR-4 printed circuit board applications and provides laminates with a nominal glass transition temperature (Tg) of 180°C and excellent thermal stability.

Benefits

  • High glass transition temperature
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Flame retardance
  • Good solder resistance
  • Good moisture and CAF resistance
  • Increased optical density for UV blocking
  • Fluorescence for automated optical inspection (AOI)
  • Potential for fast treater speeds and reduced laminate cure times
