Creative Materials: Anistropically Conductive Epoxy

April 27, 2000
This company’s 120-43 is a screen-printable, anistropically conductive epoxy adhesive that bonds well while maintaining its anistropic qualities. It is an insulator on the X axis and Y axis, and a conductor on the Z axis. In addition to being solvent-resistant, 120-43 is resistant to heat and thermocycling. It features excellent adhesion to Kapton, Mylar, aluminum-sputtered substrates and a variety of other substrates. This product is useful in applications where shorts between closely spaced contacts are a concern.
