(115e) Polyphenylene Ether Macromonomers
PPE has been used for over 20 years to enhance the performance of epoxy based Printed Wiring Boards. However, its use and performance were limited by process complications, limited solubility in solvents and high viscosities. The continuous progression of electronics toward high speed digital, wireless, and the transfer of large data files have placed increased demands on the performance of dielectric materials. An understanding of market needs, the customer’s infrastructure and processes, and the ability to manufacture macromonomers in our current assets has led to the successful commercialization of PPE engineering macromonomers. The PPE family of macromonomers offer high solubility in solvents, broad performance enhancements such as lower dielectric properties, lower moisture uptake, higher heat, and improve FR performance. Indeed, these macromers have been heralded as a breakthrough in the search for materials that broadly enhance the performance of dielectric materials.
