Heavy Copper Printed Circuit Boards


  In situations where your system is running a high power we offer heavy copper tracing, plated through holes (PTH), surface pads, ground planes, and heat sinks.  By electroplating heavier copper to your printed circuit we are insuring high reliability and efficient power distribution.  In fact, we have found that heavy copper tracing can even act as its own heat exchanger dissipating as much as 20% of overall temperature.  Copper thickness can be plated as high as

 9 oz.  Consult your design with us today and we will make it manufacturable.

Heavy Copper and Extreme Copper PCB Applications



  • High Power Distribution
  • Planar Transformers
  • Heat Dissipation
  • Power Converters
  • Amplification Systems
  • Solar Panel Manufactures
  • Power Controllers
  • Welding Equipment
Heavy Copper Base Materials


It is important to note that for high current designs temperatures may rise due to current flow in the conductor.  When all other sources of heat are added at the conductor/laminate interface, it is important that the temperatures do not exceed the maximum operating temperature specified for the laminate or the assembly.  Heavy copper circuit boards can be built on but not limited to FR4 all TGs, Aluminum, Ceramic, Polyimide, and Teflons.
