Original Press Release:
What is PF-455 PF-455 is a humidity resistant UV curable dielectric ink designed as a crossover dielectric. This superior product will maintain electrical continuity through environmental testing and humid conditions. The excellent adhesion characteristics of PF-455 do not degrade when exposed to heat and humidity. PF-455 Compared to Other Inks PF-455 provides better humidity resistance than Electrodag® 452SS. The improved humidity resistance has lessened the flexibility of the PF-455, this material and may not be suitable for all flex tail applications. PF-455 has been found to be fully compatible with Electrodag 452SS UV curable dielectric, and Acheson silver conductors Electrodag 479SS and Electrodag 725A. Features Color: Translucent Green Viscosity: 13,500 cps Dielectric Strength: 2500-3000 volts @ 1mil Cure: 0.3-0.6 Joules/cm2 @ 1mil thick [UV Energy measured with an EIT Radiometer] Typical Applications PF-455 is a superior crossover dielectric for applications that require a humidity resistant material. Membrane Switches, medical devices, and other printed circuitry will benefit from the use of this new product. PF-455 exhibits excellent performance after humidity testing. The insulating properties of PF-455 are superior to other dielectric materials. PF-455, Electrodag® 452SS, and Dupont 5018 were exposed to the following test conditions: 1.0 mil (25ìm) thick dielectric, 15 minutes immersed, 500-volt load. Each product exhibited equal before immersion results. However, after immersion, PF-455 showed significantly better insulating properties than the other materials. For humidity sensitive applications, PF-455 will out perform other products. This excellent crossover dielectric will protect your circuit applications and provide more reliable performance.
