Ultra Low Thermal Resistant Adhesives for Electronic Applications

As advances in epoxy and silicone materials constantly evolve, manufacturers of advanced electronic systems will find that adhesives offer the ability to meet nearly any combination of requirements for thermal, environmental, and structural stability. As product manufacturers face greater challenges in assembling die, package, and other components into products able to cope with increasing heat loads, adhesives are particularly versatile for bonding, sealing and coating. Moreover, the use of filler materials in adhesives can help to fine tune the specific performance demands required to extend product lifecycles and meet manufacturing requirements. Learn more about why and how ultra low thermally conductive adhesives are the preferred fastening approach in applications requiring careful thermal management.

Evaluating Electrically Insulating Epoxies

Dielectric constant, dissipation factor, dielectric strength, surface and volume resistivity are all fundamental electrical properties of epoxies. How they are measured, what values are desirable and how they react to changes in temperature, fillers and other variables are considered in this paper. The specific composition of resin and curing agents will also affect the electrical properties of a cured epoxy system. Three major types of curing agents are explained in this paper along with their benefits and trade-offs with respect to electrical properties.
