TPS® TOPFINE®

<Engineering plastic plate material for fine precision hole processing>

Super Dimension Stability, Super High Rigidity and Super Precise Processability

TOPFINE® is a plate material with excellent dimension stability exclusively for processing fine precision holes.
Burrs are usually formed when holes that are several dozen microns in diameter are processed in conventional thermoplastic resins, but we formulated a special inorganic filler on a PPS plastic base to create its R1000 grade of TOPFINE® and succeeded in preventing burrs from forming during fine precision hole processing, which is characteristic of thermoplastic resins, using its original molding technology.
Furthermore, TOPFINE® has superior dimension stability owing to the low water absorption and low linear expansion characteristic of PPS plastics.

Uses

The primary use of TOPFINE® is in testing fixtures of printed substrates, semiconductors and the like.

Characteristics

  • TOPFINE® has excellent dimension stability due to its low water absorption and linear expansion coefficient.
  • TOPFINE® has excellent cutting processability, and generates minimal burrs when processing fine precision holes. However, exercise caution as it has low flexibility and is prone to chipping due to its composition.
