TLX-9 PCB Board
Today, we will be discussing the TLX-9 PCB, which is a type of woven glass reinforced PTFE PCB.
The TLX-9 PCB utilizes combinations of 1080 or 106 style fiberglass and demonstrates exceptional dimensional and electrical performance. Furthermore, it is available in various thicknesses, which makes it well-suited for double-sided or multilayer applications.
Let's now delve into the detailed data sheet.
Typical Properties of TLX-9
TLX-9 possesses a low dielectric constant of 2.5 at 10 GHz, along with a low dissipation factor of 0.0019 at the same frequency. These characteristics make it an excellent choice for high-frequency applications where maintaining signal integrity is crucial.
In addition to its impressive electrical properties, TLX-9 also exhibits a moisture absorption rate of less than 0.02%, ensuring stability and reliability even in damp environments.
With a dielectric breakdown voltage exceeding 60 kV, TLX-9 is suitable for use in high-voltage applications.
Both the volume resistivity and surface resistivity of TLX-9 surpass 10^7 Mohm/cm, ensuring excellent electrical insulation properties.
TLX-9 also demonstrates an arc resistance of over 180 seconds, indicating exceptional resistance to electrical arcing.

In terms of mechanical strength, TLX-9 delivers outstanding performance. It exhibits a flexural strength of over 23,000 lbs./in. in the lengthwise direction and over 19,000 lbs./in. in the crosswise direction, making it an extremely durable material.
Additionally, TLX-9 has a peel strength of 12 lbs./linear in. for 1 oz. copper.
However, the thermal conductivity of TLX-9 is only 0.19 W/m/K.
It has a coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of 9 ppm/°C in the X-direction and 12 ppm/°C in the Y-direction, while in the Z-direction, it ranges from 130-145 ppm/°C.
Finally, TLX-9 possesses a UL-94 flammability rating of V-0, indicating its high resistance to ignition and its ability to quickly self-extinguish in the event of a fire.
TLX-9 boasts a long-standing history in space and can withstand severe environments such as radiation resistance. The results of the outgassing test show that TLX-9 has a total mass loss (TML) of 0.02%. The collected volatile condensable materials (CVCM) amount to 0.01%, while the water vapor regained (WVR) is zero. These extremely low levels far exceed the required standards.
