Adhesives & Sealants

Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives encapsulate OLEDs.

Dual-Stage Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive/UV technology employs transformable, 2-stage adhesive supplied in peel-and-stick, coated tape format. Once applied, in combination with barrier substrate, momentary exposure to UV light transforms adhesive into permanent bond, protecting against oxygen, moisture, and chemical damage. Optically clear, low-outgassing system is suited for display manufacturing...

Adhesives & Sealants

Double-Sided Tapes suit touch screen assembly applications.

ARclean-® 90178 and 90176 are 0.0035 and 0.005 in. thick non-corrosive tapes that provide perimeter spacer bonding in resistive touch screen and other similar electronic devices. They utilize electronically-clean, acrylic acid-free adhesive, and have low outgassing of VOCs. Tapes offer resistance to aging with ability to withstand temperature and humidity extremes. Both have polyester film...

Adhesive Systems seal and cover molecular devices.

Low fluorescence adhesives provide sealing and cover constructions for microfluidic devices and bioarrays. Adhesives are dimensionally stable and will not flow into microfluidic channels. They will adhere to base plate without creating voids or gaps that may allow migration of components from one channel to adjacent channel, and they exhibit good stability to moisture and temperature change....

Clean Adhesives do not interfere with touch screens.

ARclean(TM) 9008 and ARclean(TM) 9033 electronically clean adhesives can be used for perimeter spacer bonding in resistive touch screens and similar sensitive electronic devices. They minimize corrosion and reduce fogging and potential oxidation of oxide surfaces and conductive circuitry. Non-corrosive and low outgassing, they have virtually no effect on electrical performance properties. Both...
