Metal Core PCB
A metal core PCB also referred to as a thermal PCB and MCPCB, differs from the traditional FR4 printed circuit boards in that incorporates a metal material as its base. With a thermally conductive dielectric layer, the prepeg dielectric ensures that heat is transferred to the base plate. The base plate, usually made of aluminium or copper, in turn, offers mechanical integrity while transferring the heat to the mounting surface or to the air. With the heat diverted away from the printed critical board components, thermal management is ensured.
What the PCB metal core ensures, therefore, is:
- Proper thermal management
- Improved product reliability
- Improved mechanical durability
At Technotronix, we have been manufacturing metal core printed circuit boards for several industries. Our state-of-the-art facility along with our commitment to quality ensures that what you get are high-quality metal core PCBs that work well to dissipate heat.

Benefits of Metal Core Printed Circuit Boards
The most important benefit of Metal Core Printed Circuit Boards is its ability to dissipate heat. With miniaturization becoming the order of the day and the constant expansion of component density, gradual increase of heat flow density is a reality.
The traditional thermal dissipation methods are not able to meet the demands of high-tech circuits, therefore necessitating a new kind of solution. PCB Metal Core ensure that components aren’t overheated. This helps in optimizing performance as also increasing the lifespan of its components.
In addition, typically where Aluminium Core PCB used, some of the other advantages that accrue include:
- They help in higher levels of heat transfer. Also, they act as a heat sink for the design while allowing different component of the design to be interconnected.
- Aluminum PCBs are a less expensive alternative.
- Being non-toxic and recyclable, aluminium comes with its environment friendly benefits.
- Being sturdy, it also reduces the possibility of accidental breakages.
- Its lightweight also adds to its strength and resilience.
Application of Metal Core Printed Circuit Board
Metal Core PCBs find a wide variety of application especially in the LED industry. Some of the applications include:
LEDs and High-Power Light-Emitting Diodes
Desktop and Notebook Computer Backlight LCD displays
Medical and Industrial Monitoring System
Motor Control Applications
Surgical lighting tools
High power scanning technology, and more
Essentially then the application of Metal Core PCB spans several industries including but not limited to telecommunications, automotive, office automation, medical, consumer and more.
