PCB manufacturers use multi-pass, high temperature reflow or wave soldering processes to join the myriad of electrical connections on their PCB. The processes involve pre-heat and thermal soaks along with highly active (ORH1) fluxes and high pressure chemical washes. Due to the severity of these processes, manufacturers demand the most durable label materials available to accurately track their boards and components.
Polyonics® understands the intricacies of PCB manufacturing and designs and manufactures label materials specifically for these harsh environments. Our durable REACH & RoHS compliant tracking labels maintain the integrity of printed bar codes and images throughout the harshest, multi-cycle PCB manufacturing processes, helping manufacturers accurately control their PCB inventories from production through to customer deliveries.
Our materials have remained at the forefront of PCB label technology for over 20 years through vigorous R&D programs, rigorous testing, and continuous evaluation and benchmarking by leading PCB and component designers and manufacturers worldwide.
Our dimensionally stable PCB label materials are engineered with ThermoGard technology to exceed the high temperature requirements of today’s most advanced reflow and wave solder processes.
Our next generation, non-yellowing, non-softening coatings are applied to our label materials to resist abrasion if contacted at elevated temperatures and withstand highly corrosive, highly active fluxes. The result is high contrast barcodes that remain readable post heat.
The PCB label materials are engineered with aggressive pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) that allow the label to remain firmly affixed through multiple passes in extreme temperatures and fully resistant to the most concentrated cleaning chemistries. Our PCB label materials are available in 1 and 2 mil thicknesses, in a variety of finishes and with a wide selection of aggressive PSAs to meet the unique specifications of various industry, military and ASTM standards.
