Unique characteristics of XRL 2000 laminates

Compolam XRL 2000 - high temperature PCB - high temperature heating circuit - high temperature shielding

Up to 260°C operating temperature

XRL 2000 metal-clad laminates are based on PEEK and can withstand continuous operating temperatures up to 260°C.  Short peak temperatures up to 330°C are acceptable.   The melting point of PEEK is 341°C.  Unlike thermoset materials, thermoplastic materials are not irreversibly damaged when overshooting the maximum use temperature for a short period of time.  

Traditional metal-clad dielectric materials are typically designed to withstand max. temperatures in the range of 125 - 150°C for continuous operation.  Although polyimide can withstand temperatures well above 300°C, polyimide-based metal-clad materials can typically be used at a maximum temperature in the range of 150-175°C, with the exception of some very special formulations that withstand up to 200°C.

Compolam XRL 2000 - high chemical resistance PCB - high chemical resistant heater circuit - high chemical resistant shielding - very low moisture absorption

Great chemical resistance - chemically inert

PEEK is famous for its exceptional chemical resistance.  It resists an exceptionally wide range of solvents, alkalines, and acids.  

Compolam XRL 2000 - radiation resitant PCB - radiation resistant heater circuit - radiation resistant shielding - X-ray transparancy

What if exposure to radiation is inherent to your application?

Gamma radiation causes heavy oxidation of traditional dielectric materials and plastics.  Their properties deteriorate rapidly.  

Traditional materials may cause optical artifacts in X-ray applications

Our expertise and manufacturing capabilities allow us to make the laminate that fits your application

  • What is PEEK ?
    PEEK, or Poly-Ether-Ether-Ketone is a semicrystaline thermoplastic. The melting temperature is 341°C (649°F). PEEK is famous for its extreme chemical resistance and is often used as a lightweight composite material to replace metal parts.
  • What thermoplastics are available?
    Compolam XRL 2000 laminates are based on PEEK (Poly-Ether-Ether-Ketone). This is a high-performance thermoplastic with excellent high temperature, chemical resistance and radiation resistance capabilities. Other high-performance thermoplastics are currently under development and supplied for customer-specific projects. If you have any specific requests, please contact us.
  • What metals claddings are available?
    Compolam XRL 2000 Laminates are typically cladded with ED copper. Other metal claddings are available on demand: - Stainless Steel - Nickel - Inconel - Titanium - etc. Please, tell us what you are looking for
  • Are the thermoplastic laminates reinforced?
    We offer both thermoplastic laminates: - XRL 2000: without glass reinforcement - XRL 2100: with glass reinforcement
  • What temperatures can XRL 2000 Laminates handle?
    Compolam XRL 2000 Laminates are based on PEEK (Poly-Ether-Ether-Ketone). - The melting point of PEEK is 343°C (650°F) - We have great experience with continuous operating temperatures for more than 3000 hours at 260°C (500°F) (and even up to 330°C (626°F) with an oxidation barrier) without delamination, even in harsh vibration conditions. - We have excellent experience with multiple thermal shocks (room temp. to 300°C) without degradation of the copper adhesion. Contact us for more detailed information.
  • What adhesive system is used in XRL 2000 laminates?
    Compolam XRL 2000 Laminates do not have an adhesive layer. This makes them more robust and thinner. Adhesives are typically the weakest layer in a metalized laminate.
  • Are the laminates available in rolls, tapes or sheets?"
    Our laminates can be available in rolls, tapes and/or panels
  • What dimensions are available for XRL 2000?
    The dimensions can be adjusted to your request. (*) Standard dimensions: Sheets : - 24" x 18" (610mm x 457mm) - 12" x 18" (305mm x 457mm) - 12" x 9" (305mm x 229mm) - A4 size (210mm x 297mm) Rolls: max 24" (610mm) wide (*) Note: Possible dimensions might be restricted by the available width of the raw materials and by the thickness or rigidity of the construction
