Low-temperature cure/snap cure conductive adhesive

Paul Boughton

Engineered Material Systems, a supplier of electronic materials for circuit assembly applications, has introduced the CA-180 Low Temperature Cure/Snap Cure Conductive Adhesive designed for die-attach applications in smart cards, circuit assembly, photonics or camera modules.

ECM CA-180 will cure in 30 minutes at 80°C or in seconds at 200°C, and has a moderate glass transition temperature (Tg) and modulus. CA-180 has an optimised rheology for needle dispensing by time-pressure, auger or positive displacement. Unlike most conductive adhesives, CA-180 develops excellent conductivity with short, low-temperature cures. After curing for 30 minutes at 80°C, its electrical conductivity is 0.00006ohm-cm.
