10 oz copper PCB

What is  10 OZ copper PCB ?

A 10 oz copper PCB refers to a printed circuit board (PCB) that has a copper weight of 10 ounces per square foot.
This means that the copper layer on the PCB is thicker and has a higher copper weight compared to standard PCBs,

which typically have copper weights ranging from 0.5 oz to 3 oz.
A 10 oz copper PCB is often used in applications that require high power handling capabilities,
such as power supplies, automotive electronics, and industrial equipment.

The thicker copper PCB layer helps to improve the PCB’s thermal conductivity,
current carrying capacity, and overall durability.
Also, it is called 10 OZ heavy copper PCB.

How to do PCB manufacturing of 10 oz copper PCB?

Making a 10 oz copper PCB involves using specialized techniques and materials to create a PCB with a thicker copper layer. Here is a general overview of the process:

1. Design the PCB:

Create a PCB layout using a PCB design software that includes the desired copper weight and thickness specifications.

2. Select the right materials:

Choose a high-quality PCB substrate material that can support a thicker copper layer,
such as FR-4 with a high Tg (glass transition temperature).
Select a copper foil with the desired weight, in this case, 10 oz.

3. Prepare the substrate:

Clean the PCB substrate to remove any dirt, dust, or contaminants that could affect the adhesion of the copper layer.

4. Apply the copper foil:

Laminate the copper foil onto the substrate using heat and pressure.
This process bonds the copper foil to the substrate and forms the base copper layer.

5. Etch the PCB:

Use a chemical etching process to remove excess copper and create the desired copper traces and patterns on the PCB.

6. Finish the PCB:

Apply solder mask and silkscreen layers to protect the copper traces and provide labeling on the PCB.

7. Quality check:

Perform electrical tests and inspections to ensure the PCB meets the required specifications for thickness, copper weight, and functionality.

It is important to note that making a 10 oz copper PCB requires specialized equipment and expertise, and it is recommended to work with a professional PCB manufacturer with experience in producing high-power PCBs.

10 OZ heavy copper PCB normally used for a various products,
but not limited to: high power distribution, heat dissipation,
planar transformers, power convertors, and so on.
