Rogers Corporation is an American specialty materials company with headquarters located in Rogers, Connecticut. In 1832, Peter Rogers founded the company, which started out as a materials manufacturer for the textile industry. Rogers is known as one of the oldest public companies in America, and has a great standing of innovation and collaborative problem solving with its customers. Originally a paperboard manufacturing company, Rogers has formed into a major global materials technology leader, creating a variety of high-technology devices and systems. Rogers, as of 2013, has 2,400 full-time employees both in the U.S. and around the world in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, China, Germany and Belgium. Since its inception, Rogers has been known for sticking to a set of Values that guide the company’s actions. These values help guide the company with “decisions and behaviors within the company and defines their relationships with employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate around the world.“ Rogers Corporation has seven divisions, including the Advanced Circuit Materials division, which offers high-frequency printed circuit board laminates and flexible circuit laminates; the High Performance Foams division; and the Durel division, which offers electroluminescent lighting and drivers. Rogers uses C.A.G. as a foundation for the company’s culture of innovation. These three ideas is how Rogers works together to develop new, innovative material technologies that power, protect, and connect our world. Rogers continues to focus its research, development, and engineering investments on megatrends, a large, long-lasting, global shift in thinking or an approach that affects countries, industries and organizations, which drives global demand for a cleaner, safer, and more connected world. The company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in April, 2000. In 2013, Rogers is the technology leader in their chosen markets of research. Their goal is to “imagine what could be possible, then apply it to their creativity, research and development expertise to create new products and services for their customers.” Wikipedia.

A metal substrate with insulated vias (MSIV) has a metallic layer with through-holes defined through a thickness of the layer, a dielectric layer formed on part of the surface of the metallic layer and extending to cover internal walls of the through-hole, a conductive material extending through the insulated through-hole to form an insulated via, and an electrical circuit formed on a portion of the dielectric layer in thermal and/or electrical contact with the conductive via. The dielectric layer is a dielectric nanoceramic layer having an equiaxed crystalline structure with an average grain size of 500 nanometres or less, a thickness of between 0.1 and 100 micrometres, a dielectric strength of greater than 20 KV mm^(1), and a thermal conductivity of greater than 3 W/mK. Such a MSIV can be used as an electronic substrate to support devices such as power, microwave, optoelectronic, solid-state lighting and thermoelectric devices.

A foam tape having a multi-layer structure comprising a polyurethane foam core layer, at least one tie layer, adjacent one side of the polyurethane foam core layer, a first PSA film on one side of the first tie layer and a second PSA film, either on one side of a second tie layer or on one side of a polyester layer directly adjacent the opposite side of the polyurethane foam core layer, and a double-sided release layer on one side of the first PSA film. The foamed tape can be made by a process comprising applying a polymeric film to a first release layer to form a supported tie layer, referred to as Intermediate Product A, coating and drying a PSA composition on a second release layer to form a supported PSA coating, referred to as Intermediate Product B, laminating Intermediate Product B to Intermediate Product A which, after removing the release layer on the tie layer, forms Intermediate Product C comprising, in sequence, release layer, PSA film, and tie layer. A polyurethane foam precursor composition can be coated between a first and second Intermediate Product C, and the composition cured to form a polyurethane foam core layer.
