Carbon Nanotubes Improve Conductivity of Adhesives

SpecialChem / Edward M. Petrie – Sep 22, 2010

Carbon nanotubes have been considered as appropriate filler for electrically conductive adhesives due to their geometry and high degree of conductivity. These materials are just beginning to see commercial application in certain areas. This article will review the state-of-the-art regarding the formulation and use of conductive adhesives containing carbon nanotubes. Soldering is relied upon heavily for the manufacture of many electrical / electronic products. However, environmental legislation has resulted in a need to replace conventional tin-lead type solders with more environmentally friendly alternatives. Electrically conductive adhesives are rapidly filling this need especially in micro-electronic applications. Electrically conductive adhesives provide several advantages in addition to eliminating lead solder. However, there are several disadvantages and limitations to this technology that have slowed wide-spread conversion.
