Adhesives and Sealants for
LED Lighting Applications

Solid foundation for subcomponents and larger assemblies

Adhesives and sealants play a crucial role in the structural integrity of LED lamps and luminaires, shielding electronics from environmental stress and moisture. These products ensure components, such as module lids and base plates, provide a secure structure base for subcomponents and larger assemblies.

Dow Corning’s innovative lines of silicone-based adhesives and sealants are proven performers that offer several advantages to LED lighting manufacturers and designers.

  • Stress relief: Dow Corning® brand adhesives have stress-relieving properties that can significantly increase reliability of electronic modules or components. Unlike traditional, highly rigid adhesives, their soft elastomeric nature lowers stress and reduces damage to module components and interconnections, even in extreme environmental conditions like high temperature and humidity.

  • Processing options: Dow Corning offers a wide range of adhesives for your application and process. Our solutions are customized to address preparation and cleaning, curing, flow properties, multiple adhesive components, primers and dispensing. We are committed to helping you achieve optimum process efficiency and continue to innovate in developing next-generation adhesives that can be applied faster and cure quicker with no loss of strength.

  • Enhanced protection: Our latest adhesive products offer improved protective layers over metals for enhanced corrosion protection and reduced metal migration. This is an important benefit for certain electronic applications, such as protection of the electrodes of today’s flat panel displays.

Sealing, bonding and adhering options
Dow Corning offers a full range of non-corrosive silicone products for sealing, bonding and adhering applications. These adhesives generally fall into three cure types.

One-part moisture cure (RTV) silicones

  • Silicone elastomers commonly used for sealing modules and housings, as well as gasketing
  • Non-flowing and flowable options
  • Cure at room temperature
  • Good dielectric properties
  • Resist humidity and harsh environments

Two-part room temperature condensation cure elastomers

  • Silicone elastomers used in lid and housing seals and in gasketing applications
  • Non-flowing and flowable options
  • Rapid room-temperature and deep-section curing
  • Non-corrosive

Heat cure silicone elastomers

  • Allows rapid processing for sealing lids and housings as well as gasketing
  • Non-flowing and flowable options
  • All convert to durable, relatively low stress elastomers
  • Most will develop good, primerless adhesion to a variety of common substrates including ceramics, reactive metals and filled plastics
