St. Paul, Minnesota - H.B. Fuller has introduced Active Alignment (AA) adhesives designed for camera module assembly at IPC APEX EXPO 2017 in San Diego, California. The adhesives are based on patent-pending chemistry, “LOTERA” (Low Temperature Cure, Enhanced Reliability Adhesive).
Solutions to Address Industry Challenges
At this year’s IPC APEX EXPO, H.B. Fuller is connecting with attendees and showcasing its new AA adhesives in addition to the company’s high performance, innovative adhesive solutions for electronics at Booth 733.
H.B. Fuller has a global track record of recognizing trends and developing adhesive solutions to address industry challenges and changing market needs, particularly in the fast-growing and ever-changing electronics markets. Through close partnerships with electronics manufacturers around the world, the company has designed high performance adhesive solutions to respond to challenging application needs for electronic devices design and manufacturing process.
H.B. Fuller’s platform chemistry innovation has enabled the development of the EA6400 Series, a high-performance, AA adhesive solution for camera lens assembly. The patent-pending chemistry, “LOTERA” (Low Temperature Cure, Enhanced Reliability Adhesive), enables H.B. Fuller to target a product-specific glass transition temperature (Tg) to a given customer requirement e.g. 0 to 150°C. This capability can provide an extra performance benefit of ensuring a stable product storage modulus in the standard operating range of the devices for reliability improvement.
