Nepcon China 2007: Wacker Silicones Presents Ultratransparent Silicone Gel for Potting Sensitive Electronic Devices


At the NEPCON China tradeshow in Shanghai from April 24 to April 27, WACKER SILICONES will present its WACKER SilGelŪ 612 silicone gel. This is a very soft and transparent silicone rubber that provides reliable corrosion and moisture protection for sensitive microelectronics, such as solar cells, sensors and electronic components for autoŽmotive,high power rectifier modules and opto-electronic applications.
WACKER SilGelŪ 612 can be applied in automated mixing and metering equipment, making it ideal for mass production.
WACKER SilGelŪ 612 is part of WACKER SILICONES’ specialty portfolio of RTV-2 silicone rubber products. RTV means that the silicone vulcanizes at room temperature. The gel produced after vulcanization forms a permanently elastic silicone layer on the electronic devices, providing them with efficient protection against environmental effects and corrosion. Extremely soft with a very low Youngs modulus, the gels protect ultrasensitive devices, such as bonded integrated circuits (ICs), maintaining the function of the devices under extreme temperature fluctuations or severe vibrations.
A further product highlight from WACKER SILICONES is the amine-curing conformal coating system SEMICOSILŪ 964 UV/Clear, a transparent RTV silicone that also vulcanizes at room-temperature. Its curing can be greatly accelerated by UV radiation and/or carbon dioxide. SEMICOSILŪ 964 UV/Clear is ideal for the protection of circuit boards or hybrid devices used in especially tough environŽments. That is a particular advantage when devices are subject to strict specifications regarding their function, quality, reliability and cost efficiency.
The WACKER SILICONES products showcased at Nepcon will include not only a selection of potting and coating compounds, but also customized adhesives and sealants for the electronics industry. The spotlight here will be on the silicone elastomer ELASTOSILŪ N 9132 – a ready-to-use, one-part adhesive ideal for fixing components to printed circuit boards. ELASTOSILŪ N 9132 is flame retardant, complying with international safety requirements such as UL 94 V0.
