Saturn Electronics receives UL certification for Aismalibar insulated metal substrates used in LED thermal management products

Dec. 4, 2014
Saturn Electronics has received their UL listing for Aismalibar’s Cobritherm line of Insulated Metal Substrate materials. The certification allows Saturn to UL stamp their products using the entire line of Cobritherm materials which includes ALCUP-G 1.3w, ALCUP 1.8w, HTC 2.2w and HTC 3.2w. Saturn can now offer a high quality European alternative the small group of IMS materials currently available in the North American market. Raj Sutariya VP of Operations at Saturn Electroincs says “As a North American leader in MPCBs Saturn is excited to offer a new material to not only meet the standards of equivalents we already offer, but to produce cutting edge boards using the Aismalibar line of products to meet the evolving demands of the thermal management sector”. Jeff Brandman President of Aismalibar North America adds “We are excited to add Saturn Electronics to our growing list of UL certified manufacturers and look forward to supporting them on upcoming thermal management projects in the near future.”

Although most commonly found in LED lighting solutions, IMS backed PCBs are becoming more and more common in power supplies, automotive, aerospace and military applications.
About Saturn Electronics
Saturn was founded in 1985 by Nagji Sutariya. From the beginning, Saturn’s mantra was to focus solely on quality and to learn from, but never repeat, mistakes. From this seemingly simple philosophy Saturn grew from a humble 3 person operation at an average rate of 25% per year to become a top 10 PCB fabricador in North America.

About Aismalibar
AISMALIBAR was one of the first IMS laminate manufacturers in the world and was the first in Europe. AISMALIBAR is proud to introduce their material to the North American market in 2012. Their product IMS Cobritherm ® is a qualified and recognized Insulated Metal Substrate which gives the best thermal management solutions with high thermal conductivity, low thermal impedance and high dielectric capacity. AISMALIBAR has implement a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (High Pot Test) to all IMS laminates coming out of their plant. This is the only way to insure the dialectical strength is perfect and that production problems are detected before PCBs arrive to the end user.
