The most common type of metal used in PCB fabrication is aluminum. It is made with an aluminum core and standard FR4 material. When you manufacture products that use high power and need head tolerance, this material is an excellent solution because it has a thermal clad layer that is able to dissipate heat and cool the component. As a result, the products perform well under pressure.
At MKTPCB, we have been fabricating aluminum PCBs for more than 10 years. In addition to aluminum PCBs, we fabricate PCBs in a variety of materials. Our aluminum PCB is the right material for projects that require heat dissipation. We understand the importance of fabricating PCBs to work perfectly in your designs, and we pride ourselves on our quality work and fast turnaround times.
Our fabricated PCBs are IPC2 compliant, and we run our own quality assurance testing to ensure that you receive your aluminum PCBs ready for use in your products. We have a great deal of experience working with many businesses in many different industries.

When to Use Aluminum PCB Service
You will want to use aluminum PCB when your product requires a PCB that has high heat. This material is able to reduce the heat emission and cool components at the same time. Aluminum PCBs are commonly used for LED lighting, automotive systems, and power equipment. The increase in heat production is one of the most difficult aspects of LED lighting designs to overcome, and aluminum PCB offers the right solution.
Additional Features of Aluminum PCBs
All of our aluminum PCBs come with the following features to ensure performance and functionality:
- Peeling strength of 1.8 n/mm
- Soakable soldering of 280 to 260 degrees Celsius per minute with no bubbling or delamination
- Excellent thermal conductivity and resistance
- Standard IPC2 quality
- 4 to 24 layers
- Quantities of one to 10,000 or more pieces
- Build times of two days to five weeks
- Made of aluminum core with FR4 covering
We offer different board sizes and thicknesses to ensure that the aluminum PCB is exactly what you need for your products. We will customize your aluminum PCBs to make sure that they are exactly what you need for your products.
How to Order
If you would like to order your aluminum PCBs, you can email or telephone us to get started. Once you let us know what you need, our sales engineer will contact you to present the quote. We can produce anywhere from one to over 10,000 pieces, and we have a fast turnaround time.
