Electrically Conductive Adhesives for Building Reliable Connections

Automotive electronics' technology continues to find new applications all around the vehicle. Electronic control units are often assembled using Electrically Conductive Adhesives (ECAs), where components are attached to noble metallized ceramic or HDI boards. The major limitation of ECAs has been their instability on common electronic metals, such as tin, which requires the use of expensive noble finished metallizations.

Henkel however, has developed a product that enables stable performance with 100 percent tin-terminated components under several challenging test conditions. Henkel's ECAs provide the benefit of lower processing temperatures compared to solder pastes. This enables bonding of temperature sensitive components to temperature sensitive substrates without damaging them.
