Aismalibar Receives UL Certification for Flextherm Conformable IMS Laminates

Aismalibar is pleased to announce they have received UL Certification for their line of Flextherm conformable IMS laminates. Fabricators can now apply to have Flextherm added to their portfolio of approved laminates.

The UL Certificate reference is File E47820, Vol. 1 and is now posted to the UL website. Eduardo Benmayor, Managing Director at Aismalibar, adds “3D designs with bendable Insulated Metal Substrates are on the cutting edge of technology. Many leading OEMs / CMs are currently utilizing the capabilities of Flextherm to meet their thermal management objectives. We are extremely excited to continue working closely with design engineers to further develop their products.”

Flextherm is ideal for manufacturing conformable Metal Printed Circuit Boards. It can be bent after production while maintaining the initial dielectric strength in between its conductive layers (Al and Cu). The flexible properties of this material enable it to conform to both the positive and negative radii allowing the product to adapt to the demands of increasingly complex MPCB designs.

About Aismalibar:
Aismalibar was one of the first IMS laminate manufacturers in the world and was the first in Europe. Aismalibar is proud to introduce their material to the North American market in 2012. Their product IMS Cobritherm ® is a qualified and recognized Insulated Metal Substrate which gives the best thermal management solutions with high thermal conductivity, low thermal impedance and high dielectric capacity. Aismalibar has implemented a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (High Pot Test) to all IMS laminates coming out of their plant. This is the only way to insure the dialectical strength is perfect and that production challenges are detected before PCBs arrive to the end user.
