Carrier Tape > Type U,G, N and Q Polycarbonate

Advantek Polycarbonate material provides superior performance, especially in small to micro-form factors requiring very sharp pocket features. ESD-safe polycarbonate maintains its fl exibility, stability and strength through time and temperature variations. Advantek Type U, G, N and Q carrier tapes are available for standard and clean room compatible applications.
  • All Advantek carrier tape is manufactured in accordance with EIA standards to ensure compatibility with tape and reel equipment.
  • Suitable for bare die applications.

Shelf Life and Storage

We recommend that Advantek Polycarbonate carrier tapes be used within 5 years of the date of manufacture. Store this product in its original packaging in a climatecontrolled environment where temperature ranges from 21°C +/- 17°C (70°F +/- 30°F). This product is not affected by humidity. Allow the product to stabilize at room temperature prior to use.

Camber

The Advantek Polycarbonate carrier tape meets the EIA-481-D standard for camber that is not greater than 1mm in 250 linear milimeters. For 8mm to 24mm carrier tape in the level wind format, the camber will not be greater than 2mm in 250 linear millimeters.
