Electrically conductive adhesive

22 March 2017 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Henkel’s Loctite AbleStik ICP 3535M1 is an electrically conductive adhesive (ECA) that provides a robust alternative to solder for many applications, lowers component assembly stress and facilitates lead-free interconnection for regulatory compliance. The material recently gained acceptance at global automotive electronics manufacturers, where it is being used successfully for the production of transmission control units and qualified for several other automotive applications.

Internal and customer qualification testing have confirmed the material’s stable contact resistance and good mechanical integrity after 3000 hours of temperature and humidity testing, 3000 cycles of thermal shock evaluation and 3000 hours of heat storage. Excellent performance on smaller components also underscores its effectiveness for the reduction of defects. Evaluation of the material on 0402 components resulted in zero bridging or wicking, and the material is equally effective on larger devices such as MOSFETs.

Whereas other ECAs are unable to cope with non-noble metals on component terminations, Loctite AbleStik ICP 3535M1 is effective on traditional palladium silver-, silver- and gold-finished components, as well as cost-effective tin-terminated components. Applications within the aerospace, wireless datacom, security and lighting sectors will also benefit from the material’s flexibility, reliability and cost reduction capability.
