Aluminum PCB Capabilities
Aluminum PCB, also known as metal core PCBs, are specialized circuit boards designed for high-power applications that require efficient heat dissipation and temperature control. They are constructed with an Aluminum core, which serves as an excellent conductor of heat, and a standard FR-4 layer. Aluminum PCB offer a range of capabilities that make them the ideal choice for a variety of industries, including LED lighting, power equipment, and automotive systems.
Here are a few of the top capabilities of Aluminum PCB:
Excellent Heat Dissipation: Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat, which makes it ideal for applications that generate a lot of heat. When used in a PCB, Aluminum effectively dissipates heat away from the components, preventing overheating and maintaining consistent performance.
Optimal Performance: Aluminum PCB is designed to deliver optimal performance, even under high-stress conditions. This makes them an excellent choice for high-power applications that require a reliable and efficient PCB.
Temperature Control: Controlling the temperature of a PCB is crucial for preventing damage and ensuring consistent performance. Aluminum PCB is designed to maintain a consistent temperature, even under high-stress conditions, making them ideal for applications that require precise temperature control.
Durability: Aluminum PCB is highly durable and can withstand a wide range of environmental conditions, including high humidity, extreme temperatures, and exposure to chemicals.
Versatility: Aluminum PCB is versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, including LED lighting, power equipment, and automotive systems.

Aluminum PCB has three main layers as follows:
Circuit Layer: Printed circuit foil with thickness of 1 oz to 10 oz.
Dielectric Layer: The Dielectric layer is a thermally conductive layer and is around 50μm to 200μm thick. It had a low thermal resistance and it suitable for its application.
Base Layer: The base layer is most often Aluminum but can also be copper. The most commonly used thickness is 0.040″ (1.0mm) although many alternative thicknesses are available.
