Fluon® Perfluoro Adhesive
(Semi-commercial product) EA-2000
Fluon® PFA EA-2000, is an Perfluoro resin which has been functionalized to include an adhesive group
within the polymer backbone. The perfluoro backbone gives the material excellent electrical characteristics,
and heat and chemical resistance, while the adhesive functionality facilitates adhesion to other materials in a
one-step process, without the need for surface treatment or a separate adhesive layer. Example materials
include glass cloth, polyimide, or various metals. This grade is semi-commercialized and may be available
upon request. This material is supplied as pellets and packaged in 25kg plastic bags.
Features of EA-2000
 Heat resistance to 260C and superior chemical resistance, equivalent to conventional PFA materials
 Adhesion to other polymers and metals without the use of surface treatment or a separate adhesive
layer via a traditional melt-processable method.
 Excellent non-stick properties, low frictional properties, and water and oil repellency (high contact
 Low dielectric constant (2.1) and low dissipation factor (0.001)
Assumed Applications of EA-2000
 Printed circuit boards (rigid or flexible)
 Heat-resistant insulating tape
 Heat-resistant laminated tubing
 Interposers
 Steel plate laminates
Ideal for PCB materials

Material composition
Characteristics of EA-2000/glass cloth substrate
 Favorable relative dielectric constant and dielectric dissipation factor
 Excellent copper foil adhesion and copper plating coverage inside through -holes
 Favorable solder heat resistance with low linear expansion coefficient in the xy-plane

Transmission loss measurement method by micro-strip line (MSL)
Measurement conditions
 Microstrip line (characteristic impedance 50 , line length 10 mm)
 TRL calibration
 Measuring frequency range: 1 to 40 GHz
 Transmission loss comparison
 The state at zero reflection loss calculated from the measurement results in MSLs with different
characteristic impedance will be compared
Evaluation results of microwave transmission characteristics
 The MSL transmission loss of the EA-2000/glass cloth substrate is approximately half that of a
competitor's PTFE substrate.
 The transmission loss can be further reduced by improving the laminate composition (glass cloth, low
permittivity filler, etc.).

All Fluon grades should be stored in clean and dry conditions. No special pre-heating or conditioning is
As with most fluoropolymers, care is needed when heating EA-2000 pellets and local exhaust ventilation is
required. Please refer to our Safety data sheets (SDS) for guidance.
Thermal decomposition of this product will generate hydrogen fluoride, which is corrosive. Corrosion
resistant materials are required for prolonged contact with molten resin.
EA-2000 should be processed at a maximum temperature of 380C in order to preserve the adhesive
functionality of the polymer.
