Epoxies, Etc... Develops New Electrically Conductive Epoxy Resin

40-3900 is a two component epoxy adhesive filled with pure silver. This electrically conductive epoxy resin formulation offers the maximum in continuity of conductivity with an electrical resistivity value of less than 1x10-4 ohm-cm. 40-3900 is also well known for its' wide operating temperature range, -50 to + 170°C.

40-3900 is specifically designed for chip bonding in microelectronic and optoelectronic applications. Due to its' excellent continuity, it has also been used extensively in applications such as micro-wave EMI and RFI shielding, in the assembly or repair of printed circuit boards, wave guides, electronic modules, flat cable, high frequency shields, connectors, circuitry, and as a cold solder.

40-3900 is formulated with pure silver (no alloys) and is designed in a convenient 1:1 mix ratio. Both the resin and hardener have silver powder dispersed.
