New Product – Creative Materials introduces a series of isotropic and anisotropic B-stage electrically conductive adhesive films.
March 2021 – New Product – Creative Materials introduces a series of isotropic and anisotropic B-stage electrically conductive adhesive films. The controlled reflow and high reliability of these adhesive films sets them apart from most other adhesive films. Both series of products are available in sheets and as custom preforms to customer-specified
geometries. 125-22-F is an isotropically conductive series of films available in standard thicknesses of 1-5 mils; other thicknesses can be requested. 126-37-F is an anisotropically conductive series of films and is recommended for use at 1 or 2 mil thicknesses. Another version of 126-37-F accommodates atypical bond-line thicknesses and contact pitches. All of these films and preforms are supplied on an easy-to-remove release liner.
These products offer excellent thermal stability and high temperature properties to 325ºF, excellent electrical conductivity, chemical resistance when fully cured, adhesion to a wide variety of high-energy surfaces, minimal flow during bonding and curing, and low CTE. Cure temperatures as low as 100ºC can be used.
Both products are typically used in conductive splicing of ribbon cables, PTF circuits, electrical attachment of surface-mounted devices as well as assembly of electrical and electronic components. The anisotropic product is used when
shorts between closely spaced contacts is a concern.
