Delmat mechanical properties

Delmat mechanical properties | 2 June, 2000

I'm considering using Delmat, or some equivalent material, as a stiffener for rather large pcb, but I don't know the material properties.

Specifically I'm interested in:

Young's Modulus, E Poisson Ratio, nu Density, rho Strength,

Thanks,

Jim

James: I believe Delmat is a proprietary product. Check with some of the solder fixture fabricators in the archives.

Continuing, I would not select knowingly Delmat as a board stiffener. It's a composite material similar to oriented strand board (over at Home Depot). More often than not, I see metal strips being used as board stiffeners. One source is: Circuit Components 400SrooseveltSt TempeAZ85282 602.967.0624fax9385

Good luck Dave F
