Heavy Copper Printed Circuit Boards

Applications which require running a high power we offer heavy and extreme copper tracing, plated through holes (PTH), surface pads and ground planes. By electroplating heavier copper to your pcb you are insuring high reliability and efficient power distribution. In fact, we have found that heavy copper tracing can even act as its own heat exchanger dissipating as much as 20% of overall temperature. Extreme copper thickness can be plated as high as 30oz.

Heavy Copper and Extreme Copper PCB Applications.

  • High Power Distribution
  • Planar Transformers
  • Heat Dissipation
  • Power Converters
  • Amplification Systems
  • Solar Panel Manufactures
  • Power Controllers
  • Welding Equipment

It is important to note that for high current designs temperatures may rise due to current flow in the conductor. When all other sources of heat are added at the conductor/laminate interface, it is important that the temperatures do not exceed the maximum operating temperature specified for the laminate or the assembly. Heavy and extreme copper circuit boards can be built on but not limited to FR4 all TGs, Aluminum, Copper, Ceramic, Polyimide, and Teflons.
