Matching and Backing Layers

Thermoset blocks and wafers manufactured in-house

Appli-Tec created both the large block casting and the wafers used for ultrasound matching and backing layers.

Appli-Tec can create thermoset castings of nearly any size using filled or unfilled materials.

We cast thermoset materials into blocks or wafers, test acoustically for velocity, impedance, loss, and density, then machine or grind to very precise dimensional tolerances (+/- 2 micron). B-stage films can be applied if needed.

Typically, thermoset wafers are used in ultrasound applications as matching and backing layers. Read our Speciality Materials Tech Tip to learn more.
