High-performing materials to enhance PCB reliability for flexible and rigid boards

DuPont brings a deep understanding of materials science to the printed circuit board (PCB) market. We provide materials that support all aspects of PCB manufacturing for many types of PCBs: single- or double-sided boards and flexible, rigid-flex, or rigid configurations.

Tap into our long history as a market leader in flexible PCB laminates, dry film photoresists, and high-reliability metallization to determine the best combination of materials to enhance the performance of your PCBs. We allow you to push the design envelope and create products that perform faster and more reliably.

Our broad portfolio of PCB materials includes films, laminates, photoresists, and metallization. We continue to bring new products to market to create reliable PCBs with increased circuit density that function well under demanding environmental conditions.

Choose DuPont as your materials solutions partner to:

  • Get a complete solution, not just materials
  • Enable smaller and smarter PCBs
  • Improve performance and enhance reliability
 
 
 
  • PCB manufacturing involves many steps—depositing metal and photoresist layers, imaging, etching, and stripping—all of which require materials tailored for a specific function. Whether they remain on the board or are removed during the manufacturing process, all PCB materials affect the performance and reliability of the final product.

  • The drive toward miniaturization in the consumer electronics and telecom sectors requires PCBs with higher circuit density, which puts greater demands on the metal and dielectric layers as line widths and spacings decrease. Choosing the right materials improves yield and controls manufacturing costs.

    PCBs in automotive applications must operate reliably under conditions of high temperature and high voltage, where signal integrity is critical for safety. As the number of boards and components in vehicles increases, more function must be packed into a smaller space, elevating the importance of materials that enable compact, highly reliable designs.
