What are the Features of PCB Tg 170?
The best way to identify the glass fabric-based epoxy resin copper clad laminate is by looking at the features.
You ought to look at the features because they are the most unique description that will detail the Tg 170.
Here are the features that you must identify to really ascertain a PCB with Tg of 170 degrees centigrade.
Glass Transition Temperature (Tg)
The most important identifier that you can focus on is the Tg where the materials change from solid to rubberlike substances.
In your tests, you must achieve a temperature of 170 degrees centigrade before the solid-state changes to soft rubberlike materials.
Great Thermal Delamination Properties
You will also note that there is difficulty when it comes to weakening of bond of the PCB laminates.

Which Group Does the PCB Tg 170 Belong To?
PCB Tg 170 belongs to the high temperature glass transition group.
This is a very high temperature region where polymers will transition from hard glass like materials.
An increase of the temperatures beyond this point results into a soft and rubberlike material.
You will also realize that circuit materials at this high Tg range can never burn but change its form.
So, any Tg that goes beyond 170 degrees centigrade is under the high Tg group.
High Tg PCB
What are Some of the Materials for Manufacturing PCB Tg 170?

- N4000-6 & N4000-11
How Does the General PCB Tg Compare to the High PCB Tg?
Since there is a wide range of glass transition temperatures, you have to expect highs and lows.
Due to such expectations, you will also realize various classifications of glass transition temperature.
In that case, we have the general or standard glass transition temperature and the high glass transition temperature.
General or standards glass transition temperature is the group that has the lowest Tg.
The temperature range runs below 140 degrees centigrade.
On the other hand, high Tg is a group that has the high glass transition temperatures.
Here, you will note that the temperature range starts from 170 degrees upwards.
Apart from the temperature range, you will also realize a difference in terms of stability.
Implying that, the higher the glass transition temperature range, the higher the level of stability.
In other words, high Tg PCB materials have greater stability in comparison to the standard or general Tg.
What is the Difference Between Moderate PCB Tg and High PCB Tg?
On the same note of Tg classification, you will realize the moderate PCB Tg and the high PC Tg.
Moderate PCB Tg falls within the mid-range of PCB Tg where the temperature ranges from 150 to 170 degrees centigrade.
On the other hand, high Tg classifies PCB Tg with temperature ranging from 170 degrees and above.
Obviously, the stability rule also applies in this case where the higher the Tg, the greater the stability.
In that case, high Tg materials have better stability in comparison to the moderate PCB Tg.
What are Some of the Quality Certifications for PCB Tg 170?
You will have better performance and longer durability of materials when you use high quality materials.
You can only ensure that the materials are of high quality by looking at the quality certifications.
Here are the main quality certifications that you should pay close attention to.

How Does PCB Tg 150 Compare to PCB Tg 170?
PCB Tg 150 and PCB Tg 170 have very different glass transition temperature ranges.
Tg 150 belongs to the moderate or medium Tg group while Tg 170 belongs to the high Tg group.
Tg 150 materials will change in state from hard glass like materials to soft rubber like materials at 150 degrees centigrade.
On the other hand, the same transition will happen on Tg 170 materials when the temperature reaches 170 degrees centigrade.
In addition to transition, there is a great difference between the stability of Tg 150 and that of Tg 170.
Tg 150 is less stable in comparison to Tg 170 which exhibits higher levels of stability.
What’s more, the higher the glass transition temperature, the higher the difficulty in mechanical processing.
Implying that, you will find it easier to mechanically process Tg 150 than it would be to process Tg 170 materials.
What is the Difference Between PCB Tg 130 and PCB TG 170?
On the same note of comparison, you can also opt for Tg 130 or Tg 170 materials.
You will classify Tg 130 under the standard Tg and the Tg 170 materials under high Tg.
Despite the difference in classification, the main difference is in the stability during manufacturing processes.
Here, you should know that the higher the Tg, the easier the mechanical processes.

How Does PCB Tg 170 and PCB Tg 180 Compare?
You will classify both Tg 170 and Tg 180 printed circuit board materials under high glass transition temperature.
High glass transition temperature is a group of PCB materials that have Tg which go beyond 170 degrees centigrade.
Despite the fact that the higher the Tg the greater the machining stability, you may encounter a problem.
You will find great stability of PCB material machining at 170 degrees but greater stability at 180 degrees centigrade.
You should, however, be very careful not go very high as that would cause problems with the machining stability.
Tg that goes beyond 180 degrees will start losing the machining stability thus making it difficult to process.
Can You Customize PCBs that Have Tg 170?
Yes, you can customize the PCBs with glass transition temperatures of 170 degrees centigrade.
All you have to do is provide us with the ordering information about the type of Tg 170 that you need.
