Alternatives to ricocel pallets that absorb less heat | 21 January, 2016

We are running a project that is 5 years old. We have yet to resolve all of the issues. Out biggest is warping due to the board being .012" thick. We have created a custom pallet (ricocel) and pallet cover (FR4) to sandwich the board but I am afraid the material is absorbing too much heat which could be aggravating the warping further.

Is anyone aware of a machinable material that can handle reflow temps while not absorbing nearly as much heat?

5 years. Hmmm. Good for you that you keep your job.

Do you mean "heat transfer"? If so, Durostone transfers less heat than Ricocel.

What is the purpose of this Ricocel pallet?
