Panacol Introduces UV Curable Adhesives for Consumer ElectronicsPanacol and Hönle UV Technology have developed new adhesive solutions for consumer electronics that can be tailored for novel photovoltaic (PV) and flexible electronics applications.

For organic photovoltaic (OPV) applications, these new UV and UV-LED curable adhesives were developed for laminating barrier foils. They provide higher resistance to environmental stresses, improved compatibility to the PV material and low WVTR (Water Vapor Transmission Rate).

Efficiency with Cost Reduction

Being UV-curable, these adhesives offer high throughput processes, including roll-to-roll that can be run with greater efficiency reducing the cost of ownership. The adhesive requirements such as flow properties can be modified in this context to suit the application process perfectly.

Flexible and bendable UV adhesives have also been created for more traditional applications that are now being performed on flex circuits. They include new underfills for die-attach as well as structural adhesives for component edge bonding.

The latest conductive adhesives from Panacol can efficiently secure flexible resistors and create flexible electrical connections in solar cells, touch sensors and wearable devices. This includes a one-component, silver-filled conductive adhesive that adheres very well to plastics, including polyimide, PC, PVC, ABS, and FR4 boards.

Flexible & High-peel Strength

When fully cured, the adhesive is very flexible with high peel strength, making it the perfect choice for use in applications subject to vibration, oscillation or rapid temperature changes. A major advantage is its very easy handling and storage as it only needs to be stored refrigerated, not frozen. It is easily dispensed, and cures within minutes at temperatures as low as 100°C. This makes it possible to fixture semiconductors and create electrical connections in a single step.

The specific requirements of the application and its assembly process are key factors to consider when making an adhesive selection. Significant benefits can be realized when component design assembly, adhesive properties, and the curing process (UV or thermal) are precisely coordinated. Panacol works closely with manufacturers in all facets to assist in creating an optimized bonding process. This results in increased efficiency and reduces total operational costs.
