Electrolube exhibits new silicone resin range at Southern
13 February 2012
The manufacturer of electro-chemicals will feature its newest products for the electronics, automotive and industrial manufacturing industries at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show, at FIVE in Farnborough between 15-16 February.
Electrolube’s new SC range of silicone products will be a main feature at the show, following the interest created during Productronica. Developed for the needs of the LED industry, the silicone resin SC3001 was only available in China and Australia until recently, where it has grown to become one of the company’s most successful silicone products ever.
SC3001 is a two-part encapsulation compound that has been designed to be optically clear and flexible, making it suitable for the LED industry where optical clarity is vital. The ‘2000' silicone resin series includes SC2001, a general potting and encapsulating compound, SC2001FD a fast cure compound and SC2003 a thixotropic compound. All have high continuous operating temperatures, making them the perfect barrier against a number of extreme conditions.
The new Resin Remover Solvent (RRS) and Conformal Coating Remover Gel (CCRG) will be featured at the show and provide safer solvent blends that offer highly effective results without the use of dichloromethane. RRS has been designed to swell, soften, and even dissolve epoxy and polyurethane resins. CCRG has been specially formulated to remove Electrolube's solvent resistant coatings (including DCA, DCB and DCR, amongst others).
New products on show will also include the epoxy resin, ESLE-10 and underfill resin ES501. ESLE-10 is a one-part silver loaded epoxy resin with excellent adhesion, used as a conductive bond between solder-free surface mount connections, solder repairs, static discharge and grounding or general conductive adhesion. ES501 underfill resin improves adhesion strength of devices during mechanical stress without compromising thermal cycle performance. Providing void-free underfill of area array devices, ES501 can be reworked and used in high-volume assembly.
Electrolube will also showcase two of its most recent ‘green’ innovations, FREH Freezer Spray, and the EADH Air Duster. Both products have been developed without the use of harmful gases and contain a hydrofluorocarbon propellant with superior environmental properties to the HFC-134a propellant commonly used in alternative products. Research has shown that by switching to the propellant used in FREH and EADH, equivalent CO2 emissions can be reduced by >99.5%.*
*Calculated. GWP (vs. CO2, 100 year ITH): FREH and EADH = 6; HFC-134a = 1300. >99.5% is for pure 134a; blends with other propellants may be <99.5%.
