Techsil recently announced that it has launched a range of new adhesive products with low ion content that cure with UV, visible light, or moisture. Developed by Panacol, these products were specially formulated for applications in the electronics and consumer electronics industry, where heat-sensitive parts need to be assembled.
Vitralit® UD 8050 is a one-component acrylic adhesive that can be used as an encapsulant to protect electronic components on PCBs. Vitralit UD 8050 can be cured with UV or visible light. Moisture post-curing reportedly ensures full cure in shadowed areas or deeper layers of the adhesive, which cannot be reached by light.
For specific requirements, Techsil reports that several versions of the adhesive are available. Vitralit UD 8050 MV F reportedly allows enhanced flow control and focused dispensing on each component due to its shear-thinning behavior. Its low ion content prevents corrosion on electronic components. For superior process control, Vitralit UD 8050 MV F contains a fluorescent marker.
For jetting, the low-viscosity version Vitralit UD 8050 LV reportedly offers easy dispensing and fast curing. Vitralit UD 8050 LV is convenient for applications in the production of consumer electronics where high throughput is needed.
The adhesives are transparent by default, but they are also available in blue or fluorescing versions. Other colors are available on request.
