Dow Launched Electrically Conductive Silicone Adhesive at Battery Show Europe 2019

Published on 2019-05-14. Author : SpecialChem

Dow, returned to The Battery Show Europe 2019 to showcase its broad and growing portfolio of conductive silicone technologies with the launch of DOWSIL™ EC-6601 Electrically Conductive Adhesive. This next-generation material is engineered for reliable performance and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in various transportation, communications and consumer electronics applications. It combines strong shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) across a wide range of frequencies with durable mechanical and conductive properties over time.

Demand for Excellent Electrical Conductivity Materials

“The effect of increased electromagnetic interference in emerging automotive applications spanning electrification, autonomy and 5G connectivity is driving demand for materials with excellent electrical conductivity, long-lasting performance, and strong EMI shielding,” said Jeroen Bello, global senior marketing manager for new technologies at Dow.

“DOWSIL™ EC-6601 Adhesive provides this unique combination of properties and bonds to a variety of substrates. Dow is investing in solutions that address performance challenges and enable high-volume assembly in markets where connectivity, reliability, productivity and the ability to meet specific regulatory requirements are especially important.”

Expecting Performance Advantages of Silicone Adhesives

Dow’s stand at The Battery Show Europe 2019 further highlighted DOWSIL™ EA-4700 CV Adhesive, an advanced silicone adhesive capable of faster room temperature curing while maintaining the expected performance advantages of silicone adhesives.

DOWSIL™ EA-4700 CV Adhesive bonds quickly to metals and plastics used in electronics assembly and offers low levels of volatile condensable materials to support its use near sensitive electronic components. Importantly, this advanced material enables manufacturers to increase throughput while reducing or eliminating oven curing for reduced capital expenses and energy usage.

At the show, Dow featured recent expansions beyond its proven portfolio of thermally conductive materials. These new materials include thermally conductive adhesives, encapsulants and gap fillers, reflecting the evolving requirements from users of thermal materials for products with both high-performance capabilities and high-volume throughput.

Advanced Liquid Thermally Conductive Materials

“As a trusted global supplier of these advanced liquid, thermally conductive materials, we will continue to work in close partnership with our customers and equipment suppliers to ensure next-generation materials meet performance expectations while delivering ease and effectiveness for use in mass production,” said Bruce Hilman, global segment leader for transportation assembly, at Dow.

Visitors to the Dow stand at The Battery Show Europe saw several key applications including a cylindrical cell type module, a pouch cell type module, an engine control unit (ECU) and a transmission control unit (TCU) that demonstrate the company’s advanced materials in use. Dow’s portfolio of electrically conductive and EMI silicone technologies for applications in the transportation, communications and consumer markets are available worldwide.
