Taconic TLX offers reliability in a wide range of RF applications.
This material is versatile due toits 2.45 – 2.65 DK range
And, available thicknesses and copper cladding.

It is suitable for low layer count microwave designs.
TLX PTFE fiberglass laminates are ideal for use in radar systems,
Mobile communications, microwave test equipment,
microwave transmission devices and RF components.

TLX is a workhorse in the RF microwave substrate world where
The fiberglass offers mechanical reinforcement,
Wherever a substrate experiences severe environments,
Such as: resistance to creep for PWBs bolted to a housing that encounter high
levels of vibration during space launch.

High temperature exposure in engine modules, radiation resistance in space
(see NASA’s website for low outgassing materials),
Antenna for warships that undergo extreme environments at sea and
A substrate for altimeters that see a wide range of temperatures during flight.

The wide range of dielectric constants available enable the
Manufacture of couplers, splitters, combiners, amplifiers,antenna and other components.
