  • Patent number: 4131707
    Abstract: The invention relates to solutions which are stable on storage and which contain curable mixtures of polymaleimides, comonomers for these polymaleimides and, optionally, polymerization catalysts and compounds which contain at least one furyl radical, preferably furfuryl alcohol. The solutions are used for the manufacture of crosslinked polymers containing imide groups. Usually a substrate is impregnated with the solution. After drying, curing is carried out at 100 to 300.degree. C. Using a known method, for example, glass fibre fabric is subjected to hot pressing together with a copper foil, curing being effected. This gives correspondingly copper-coated laminated sheets which are outstandingly suitable for the manufacture of printed circuits.
