TG 180 PCB Assembly
What Happens to the PCB when the Tg Exceeds 180?
Well, there are glass transitional temperatures that go beyond the 180-degree mark.
Such materials have better stability in comparison to the materials with glass transition temperature of 180 degrees centigrade.
An increase in the glass transition temperature often guarantees an increase in the machining or processing abilities of such materials.
Apart from that, an increase in temperature beyond 180 degrees may also mean destruction of the materials.
For instance, materials with Tg 180 degrees will definitely become soft and rubber like if temperatures go beyond 180 degrees.
In addition to that, you have to be very careful when increasing operation temperatures beyond 180-degree mark.
Instead of having stable materials, you will have rigid materials that are difficult to process if temperatures exceed 200 degrees centigrade.

How Does the PCB Tg 180 Compare to PCB Tg 170?
Among the high Tg class, you can either choose between PCB Tg 170 and PCB Tg 180.
These are glass transition temperatures in the highest class of Tg that can withstand very high temperatures.
In terms pf processing stability, you will have an easy time processing both Tg 180 and Tg 170.
As temperature increases, the processing stability of Tg 180 and Tg 170 also increases.
Implying that, Tg 180 has better processing stability in comparison to Tg 170 with lower processing stability.
The materials that you will use to manufacture PCBs with Tg 180 and Tg 170 are more or less similar.
You should, however, expect to have slight variations which makes the difference between Tg 170 and Tg 180.
What is the Difference Between PCB TG 180 and PCB Tg 150?
Here, you will be looking at glass transition temperatures that are within two different classes.
PCB Tg 150 belongs to the medium or moderate glass transition temperature class.
On the other hand, Tg 180 belongs to the high glass transition temperature class.
In these classes, you will realize that there is a huge difference when it comes to stability.
Medium glass transition class have lower stability in comparison to high glass transition class.
This is because, Tg 180 are at high temperatures than Tg 150, thus increasing the overall processing stability.
How Does PCB Tg 180 and PCB Tg 130 Compare?
In this case, the comparison will focus on the standard glass transition temperature and the high glass transition temperature.
Standard glass transition temperature is the lowest class of classification when it comes to glass transition temperatures.
In this class, you will find glass transition temperatures ranging between 130 to 140 degrees centigrade.
Apart from that, the processing stability in this class is also very low in comparison to the high Tg class.
On the other hand, you should note that high Tg is the highest class of Tg classification with Tg 170 and above.
An increase in temperature also comes with an increase in mechanical stability thus increasing the ease of processing.
What are the Best Storage Conditions for PCBs with Tg 180?
You should store the Tg 180 PCBs under conditions that will keep them away from the effect of moisture and dust.
For that reason, you will use moisture resistant bags to cover the PCBs with Tg 180 degrees centigrade.
Apart from that, you must also make sure that you use the moisture barrier bags that you can vacuum seal properly.
In addition to the moisture barrier bags, you should also include humidity indicator cards and desiccator packs.
You must also store the PCBs with Tg 180 in a cool and dry place that is far away from the reach of children.
Indicating that, you must never refrigerate or store the PCBs with Tg 180 inside the refrigerators.
In addition to that, you must also control the humidity and storage temperatures to maintain PCB integrity.
You must also look at the element of time in terms of how long the PCB will stay under such conditions.
What are the Components of the Best Package for PCBs with Tg 180?
