    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to increase fire resistance and fracture toughness of composite structures are described. An example multi-ply composite structure has at least eleven plies including an innermost ply forming a first external surface of the multi-ply composite structure, and an outermost ply forming a second external surface of the multi-ply composite structure, with the second external surface being located opposite the first external surface. The at least eleven plies further include at least one and no more than three fire-resistant plies positioned between the innermost ply and the outermost ply within either an innermost 33% of the at least eleven plies or an outermost 33% of the at least eleven plies. Respective ones of the fire-resistant plies include an epoxy-based resin and a first additive mixed into the epoxy-based resin. The first additive increases a flammability resistance of the multi-ply composite structure.

  • Patent number: 10187999
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for manufacturing a printed circuit board having an ultra-thin metal layer. The method discharges alkaline aliphatic amine gas and the nitrogen bubbled in the cupric sulfate solution via capacitive coupling in a vacuum, to generate low temperature plasma. The polyimide film and the epoxy resin board coated with fiberglass cloth are etched and the surface is treated to graft active groups, so as to increase the surface roughness and chemical activity. Subsequently, sputtering copper plating or chemical copper plating is directly conducted. The electroplating is conducted to thicken the copper film to a required thickness. The method of the invention not only does not need adhesive (adhesive free), but also has a high peeling strength. It can be used for the preparation of the flexible PCB, the rigid PCB, the multi-layer PCB, and rigid-flex PCB, having an ultra-thin metal layer.
