Dow Corning and Delphi received the award for Dow Corning® EA-7100 Adhesive, a product initially developed for Delphi, which was grappling with several adhesion challenges. The adhesive is based on novel silicone chemistry that significantly expands design options for automotive electronics and other applications by enabling strong bonds to a wide variety of substrates. Formulated with patented new silicone chemistry, Dow Corning EA-7100 Adhesive (PDF) offers more options for designing next-generation electronics including control units, sensors, lighting and display modules, and offers advantages such as greatly accelerated processing speed, and reduced energy use.

"This award recognizes what Dow Corning does best every day - working alongside customers to develop innovative silicone-based products that solve challenges and create opportunities for our customers to compete and win," said Ganesh Kailasam, senior vice president and chief technology officer. "While this technology is helping advance the automotive electronics industry, there are countless other applications that could benefit."

"The R&D 100 awards are often referred to as the "Oscars of Innovation," and highlight significant technology inventions of the past year. The award has historically honored many of the leading minds in invention, including Dean Kamen, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Buzz Aldrin, astronaut Scott J. Kelly, Kary Mullis, and Hugh Herr.
