Silicone Adhesives and Sealants

Adhesives are used primarily to attach components, such as module lids and baseplates, within electronic modules or seal openings in the module to exclude dirt, water or other contaminants. A key benefit of Dow Corning ® Adhesives is their potential to significantly increase reliability of the electronic module or component because of their stress-relieving properties.  Dow Corning Adhesives have a “rubbery”, elastomeric nature and are not traditional, highly rigid adhesives. This low stress environment can reduce damage to module components and interconnections. They are also able to maintain their stress-relieving nature throughout exposures to extreme environmental conditions like high temperature and humidity.    

Dow Corning Adhesives also offer versatile processing. Some are cured at room temperature, while others can be accelerated by heat. This can allow faster process times or the use of lower temperature capable materials, depending on the needs of your application and process.  Newer developed products are resulting in even faster and lower temperature curing capability. 

Improvements have also been made in our newer adhesive products in their ability to form protective layers over metals to reduce corrosion and metal migration. This can increase their usefulness in such applications as protection of the electrodes of flat panel displays. 



Dow Corning’s line of adhesives is also offered in a range of flow properties to fill gaps and channels, or to remain in place as the application requires.  Many of the flowable products will self-level to fill channels and cavities.

Other sets of Dow Corning Adhesives are used in semiconductor device packaging as lid adhesives , thermal interface materials , and die attach adhesives. These products are covered in other tutorials.
