Rogers 5880 Details:

Rogers RT/duroid® 5880 is a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fiberglass reinforced material designed for high frequency circuit applications. Here are some key parameters and properties of the material:

Dielectric constant (Dk): 2.20 ± 0.02

The dielectric constant is a measure of a material's ability to respond to an electric field. RT/duroid® 5880 has a very low dielectric constant, which helps reduce signal delays in circuits and improve performance.

Dissipation Factor (Df): 0.0009 @ 10GHz

Dissipation factor is a measure of how much energy a material dissipates in an AC electric field, and the low dissipation factor of RT/duroid® 5880 makes it ideal for high-frequency applications.

Moisture absorption rate: as low as 0.02%

Low moisture absorption means that the material can still maintain good electrical properties in high humidity environments and is suitable for various climate conditions.


The electrical properties of the material remain consistent in all directions, which is important for ensuring accuracy and repeatability in circuit design.

Processing Performance:

RT/duroid® 5880 laminate is easy to cut, shear and form for a variety of circuit board design shapes.

Chemical Resistance:

The material is resistant to solvents and reagents, whether cold or hot, used during etching or plating processes.

Application Frequency Range:

The supported signal frequencies can reach Ku band or even higher, making it suitable for high-frequency and wide-band applications.

Thermal Expansion Coefficient:

The Z-axis thermal expansion coefficient is 40 ppm/°C, which helps maintain the board’s dimensional stability under temperature changes.


A low density of 1.4 gm/cm³ makes RT/duroid® 5880LZ laminate advantageous in applications where circuit weight is sensitive.

Lead-free Process Compatibility:

Meets lead-free process standards and meets the needs of modern electronic manufacturing.


Rogers 5880 Application Areas:

Suitable for commercial aviation telephone circuits, microstrip and stripline circuits, millimeter wave applications, military radar systems, missile guidance systems, point-to-point digital radio antennas, etc.

Mechanical Properties:

RT/duroid® 5880 laminate has high mechanical strength due to its glass fiber reinforced properties, which allows it to withstand various physical stresses that may be encountered during processing.

Temperature Resistance: 

The material can withstand certain temperature changes and is suitable for electronic equipment required to operate in a wide temperature range.

Electrical Stability: 

RT/duroid® 5880 laminate maintains consistent electrical characteristics over a wide frequency range, which is critical to ensuring the performance of high-frequency circuits.

Processing Adaptability: 

The material can adapt to the specific requirements for the shape of printed circuit boards in high-frequency applications and is easily processed into the required shape.

Electroplating Compatibility: 

RT/duroid® 5880 supports electrodeposited copper with a thickness of 8~70um, which provides the possibility to manufacture finer circuit features.

Due to its low moisture absorption, RT/duroid® 5880 laminate is suitable for use in high humidity environments, maintaining circuit reliability.
