Due to the shrinking sizes of assemblies combined with increasing functionality and power requirements, the need for thermal management is critical. Henkel's assembly films not only provide best-in-class electrical, thermal and mechanical performance but also lower total assembly costs through the elimination of inventory maintenance and/or third-party conversion. Henkel's assembly films provide a proven solution for the most demanding applications requiring the highest reliability performance. Henkel provides customized, pre-cut cut film preforms to precisely match highly-complex printed circuit board shapes and patterns. This ensures an exact amount of void-free adhesive with a controlled bondline thickness in a specific area.
