    I've been reading from an article lately saying that the new material of pcb is invented. It has the flexibility of the fpc, and also can take heat as aluminum board. I was told by pcbfinpo, and they claim it is on its testing stage. Does anyone know about it? www.pcbfinpo.com

    No. Not even Finpo. It's still in the testing stage.

    Kapton® polyimide insulation was banned from use in US Navy/Marine aircraft, as use of the material led to numerous difficult-to-explain in-flight emergencies, and numerous destroyed aircraft. Kapton is a wonderful insulator, but even small scratches can cause the material to split; and when that happens, the material tends to return to the form it was made in. Kapton tape will tend to straighten out; if it is wrapped around a wire, it will tend to unwrap. Once the material gets weakened, it's also prone to flash-overs and carbon tracking.
