Polymer Resistor System Offers Alternative To Ceramics

According to the company, the 8600 series polymer resistor system offers a cost-effective alternative to ceramic high temperature materials (Cermet) for potentiometer applications as it offers better wear resistance. The polymer material is softer and offers longer operational life with reduced wear on the components. Additionally, its lower cure temperature provides an alternative to the higher firing Cermet-based resistor systems, which reportedly results in cost-savings. Each end member in the 8600 series is blendable with the adjacent members to obtain intermediate resistance values and can be screen-printed onto a wide range of substrates including printed circuit boards, ceramics, glass, phenolic, and flexible substrates capable of withstanding the thermal processing requirements of the paste.
