Candor's Graphite Metalization Process VS Electroless Copper

Direct Metalization using a graphite process gives superior bonds to inner layer junctions. This process once perfected gives you greater performance through thermal cycling. We have found our boards have lasted longer in the field than our competitors, and this process is part of the reason.

How The Graphite Metalization Process Exemplifies Candor's Simplified Manufacturing Process

Design Objectives

Customer Product Benefit

(Functional, Qualitative, Aesthetic)

  • check

    Increased performance with destructive testing, thereby giving a customer a better product.

Operator Friendly

(Simple, Repetitive, Basic Technical Skills)

  • check

    Reduction of complex baths that require constant observation and measurments.

Environmentally Friendly

(Reduce, Re-use, Recycle)

  • check

    Removal of harmful EDTA's and formaldehyde allowing Candor to be an environmentally friendly facility.

Regulatory Compliance

(Surpass Restrictions with Less Water)

  • check

    Extremely little water used compared to electroless copper.

Fewer Process Step

(symptom of On-Time Delivery)

  • check

    Reduction in process steps give Candor the ability to do 1 day turns!

Process Control Advantage

(less monitoring, ease of use)

  • check

    Less chemistry required with an increase in stability making the process easier to control.
