Huntsman Announces Line of Adhesives for Production of Electronic Components
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, February 27, 2007- A comprehensive series of high-strength epoxy and polyurethane adhesives for the encapsulation, insulation and bonding of electronic components as well as printed circuit boards is now available from Huntsman Advanced Materials. ARALDITE® adhesives are providing manufacturers throughout the world with the handling and performance properties they need to cost-effectively encapsulate and assemble electronic automotive components such as ignition coils, safety sensors and infotainment controls. The adhesives are also fast becoming the materials of choice for bonding miniature, high-speed circuitry for telecommunications equipment and printed circuit boards for medical devices and other general industrial parts.
Advanced ARALDITE epoxy adhesives for bonding and potting of electronic components are RoHS-compliant, UL-recognized, high-temperature materials that feature excellent chemical and moisture resistance along with good dielectric characteristics. The room temperature- and elevated temperature-curing products offer low shrink and good sag resistance, producing long-lasting encapsulation and joints on metals and thermoplastics. The adhesives are formulated with a broad range of work lives -- from products with long open times to ultra-fast setting systems for rapid assembly and repairs.
ARALDITE polyurethane materials formulated by Huntsman scientists for electronics applications are UL-recognized, high-temperature systems that combine flexibility with good lap shear strength. The materials are particularly well suited for bonding hard-to-join thermoplastic substrates and encapsulating pressure-sensitive components. Like the epoxy systems, ARALDITE polyurethane adhesives are sag resistant and cure at room temperature or, for faster cycling, at elevated temperatures.
The innovative epoxy and polyurethane adhesives are available in convenient, dual-barrel cartridges as well as bulk packaging for automated mixing/ dispensing.
