MLCC (multi-layer ceramic capacitor) is usually fabricated by lamination of predetermined number of single layers. Often, the state of MLCC before sintering is called the green state, whose strength comes from the adhesion between the dielectric material and the polymer binder. Therefore the lamination of a single layer before sintering can be easily deformed by environment due to the relatively lower strength. After the compression process, which helps single sheets cohereto with adjacent sheets, the MLCC green bar is preheated to resolve the probable internal stress. Unfortunately, unexpected deformation after preheating resulted in problems during cutting of the MLCC green bar. In this study, one of 2 primary hypotheses which were proposed to resolve the unexpected deformation after preheating was examined by quantitative experiment with GC/MS (gas chromatograpy/mass spectrometer). The proportion of deformation caused by DOP evaporation, which was primarily evaporated componet during preheating, to the total deformation of the MLCC green bar was found to be 53%.
