Type
   Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Film / Flexible Substrate       Film includes transfer adhesives and raw, uncoated, non-adhesive film used as a carrier, or for other specialized applications. A film adhesive or transfer tape is a synthetic resin adhesive, usually without a backing film or carrier fabric, in the form of a thin film of adhesive resin. The adhesive resin may be a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) or a thermoset. 
   Rigid       Rigid substrates typically consist of multiple layers or plys of materials such as fiberglass cloth impregnated with dielectric resin. As the name suggests, rigid substrates are not flexible. 
   Specialty / Other       Other proprietary or unlisted panel, core or laminate structures. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Embedded Passives (Capacitance / Resistance)?       Dielectric laminates or printed circuit board materials are constructed with embedded passives such Buried Capacitance® (Sanmina-SCI), buried resistors, or resistive layers. Embedded passives enable more compact designs. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   RF / Microwave Laminate?       Laminates and other products are designed or suitable for RF or microwave applications. They can be used as components within antennas, amplifiers, sensors, transmitters, radio links, phase shifters, radar units, telemetry systems, and scanners. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Materials
   Materials of Construction:      The carrier or backing is a relatively thin, flexible material to which an adhesive is applied.
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum Foil / Cladding       Aluminum foil is laminated to paper or plastic films for improved strength. Foil provides a light and less expensive form of protection for foods, medicines, and other products that can be damaged by the environment. 
   Cloth / Fabric (Woven)       Cloth substrates and laminate products incorporate woven cloth or a fabric layer(s) for reinforcement, improved strength, heat resistance, or electrical properties. 
   Copper Foil / Cladding       Electrodeposited copper foil is used in the manufacture of multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs). Several copper foil thicknesses are available. The PCB application determines the proper thickness to select. Thicker copper foil carries more current and has less impedance than thinner foil. As a rule, doubling the foil thickness increases the current capacity 1.4 times. 
   Fluoropolymer       Fluoropolymer films, layers, or coatings consist of plastics such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). Fluoropolymer coatings are used in applications that require superior chemical resistance, good dielectric properties, and water and stain repellent characteristics. Fluoropolymers are also used in applications where the material handled must not stick to the belt, fabric, or laminate. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an insoluble compound that exhibits a high degree of chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It is sometimes marketed in proprietary classes of materials such as Teflon®, a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers. 
   Glass / Fiberglass       Substrate and laminate products are reinforced with fiberglass, a fiberglass composite material, or consist of a glass lay 
   Melamine       Substrates and laminate materials use a melamine resin matrix reinforced with fibers or cloth made of glass, ceramic, cotton, aramid or other high-strength polymers. 
   Metal Foil / Cladding       Metal foil substrates and laminates have aluminum, aluminum-reinforced, and lead backings 
   Paper       Paper or flatback products have a paper backing. 
   PET / Polyester       Polyethylene teraphthalate (PET) / polyester products use a PET or polyester backing in the form of tape, film, or laminate. 
   Plastic / Polymer       Plastic products incorporate one or more plastic layers, or consist of plastic film or sheets that can be clear or colored, printed or plain, single-layered or multilayered, and combined with materials such as aluminum and paper. There are two general categories of plastics: thermoplastics and thermosets. 
   Polyolefin (PE, HDPE, PP)       Polyolefins consist of polymerized alkene groups (AKA olefins) and include polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polymethylpentene (PMP), polybutene-1 (PB-1); polyolefin elastomers (POE),  polyisobutylene (PIB),  and ethylene propylene rubber (EPR).   Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polyolefin resin. Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) polymers are used to form a variety of common or commodity-plastic components. High density (HDPE) and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW PE) have good friction and mechanical properties. They are used in medical devices, wear parts, and engineered components. 
   Polyimide (e.g., Kapton®)       Polyimide film maintains excellent physical, mechanical, chemical, and electrical properties over a wide range of physical environments. Kapton® tape is made of polyimide film and a heat-resistant silicone adhesive. Kapton is a registered trademark of DuPont Teijin Films. Polyimide films are very useful substrates for the manufacture of flexible circuit materials. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted backing materials.

Configuration
   Thickness       Thickness is the distance from one surface of a tape, film, or laminate backing or adhesive to the other. It is usually expressed in mils or thousandths of an inch, and is measured under slight pressure with a special gauge.

Performance
   Electrical Resistivity       Electrical resistivity is the longitudinal electrical resistance (ohm-cm) of a uniform rod of unit length and unit cross-sectional area. Resistivity is the inverse of conductivity.  
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Temperature Resistance       Temperature resistance is the maximum temperature that products can withstand.

IPC was known formerly as the Institute of Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits.
