Adhesives Research Develops Two New Electrically Conductive Adhesives

GLEN ROCK, Pa. (July 17, 2008) - Adhesives Research, a leading developer and manufacturer of custom pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, specialty coatings, films and laminates, has developed two new electrically conductive adhesives - ARclad® 92262 and ARclad® 92264 - for use in personal communication devices and other electronics applications that require highly reliable conductivity.

ARclad® 92262 is a 1.8-mil (0.045 mm) conductive acrylic adhesive with low volume resistance to provide excellent bonding for EMI shields, ground plane assemblies and electrical interconnections.

ARclad® 92264 is a 2.0-mil (0.05 mm) conductive acrylic adhesive specifically designed for capacitance sensors, multi-pin connectors and other fine pitch signal applications as an alternative to anisotropic conductive films (ACF) that require heat and high pressure to apply, which can damage components. ARclad® 92264 allows for overlapping of multiple contacts without electrical cross-talk occurring.

Both of these conductive adhesives offer highly consistent electrical interconnects and reliability across a range of environmental conditions such as high temperatures and humidity without swelling. They exhibit excellent adhesion to film and metal substrates, including Kapton®, gold and stainless steel, with oxide penetration that allows the adhesives to make good contact with metal. No heat is required to apply these adhesives, so there is less risk of damage to the sensitive, expensive components in communications devices. After initial lamination to a substrate, the adhesive requires no additional mechanical pressure to maintain a reliable electrical contact.

ARclad® 92262 and ARclad® 92264 are recommended for use in electronics applications such as mobile phones, computers, PDAs, disk drives, modems and automotive electronics. Adhesives Research can customize the products to meet the specific application needs of customers.

Founded in 1961, Adhesives Research offers problem-solving capabilities and custom solutions in adhesive polymerization, mixing, adhesive coating and release liner design supported by extensive product development and analytical support. The company's North American and Limerick, Ireland, facilities are certified to the updated ISO 9001:2000 standard.

Adhesives Research's pressure-sensitive adhesives are used around the world in electronics, displays, wireless telecommunications, window fabrication, and the pulp and paper industry, as well as in medical diagnostics and devices, wound care, and pharmaceuticals/transdermals. Based in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania, Adhesives Research also operates manufacturing facilities in Ireland and Colombia, has sales and marketing offices in Germany, Great Britain and Singapore, a representative office in Shanghai, China, and sales representation in Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
