OREANDA-NEWS. September 14, 2016. From September 21 23, Productronica India show delegates are invited to visit the Henkel technical team in stand #3155 to learn about the companys latest innovation, Technomelt TC 50. New to the award-winning Technomelt portfolio, this novel material delivers the simple processing and protective properties of all Technomelt hot melt adhesives, and adds thermally conductive functional capabilities. With three simple steps insert Technomelt material, mold and test a self-enclosed electronics assembly is produced in a low-pressure process, accommodating for delicate circuitry and todays fine-pitch devices. Technomelt TC 50 provides the added benefit of heat dissipation through the encapsulating layer with thermal conductivity of >0.5 W/m-K, making it an ideal dual-function solution for applications such as LEDs drivers, automotive power systems and micro solar inverters.

Next-Generation Printed Electronic Inks

Henkels market leadership in electrically conductive ink technologies is well-established and the innovation progress continues with its latest advances: Loctite ECI 8000 series positive temperature coefficient ?(PTC) inks and Loctite ECI 7000 series force sensitive resistor ?(FSR) inks. The line of PTC inks provide performance benefits for applications where fast and uniform heating is required. Uniquely, Henkels Loctite ECI 8000 PTC inks include a variety of formulations to allow for specific switch off temperatures without the use of electronic control units. This allows heating to a specific set point, which is then maintained at a constant level. There is no risk of overheating and the materials are exceptionally thin for compatibility with very tight spaces.

FSR inks enable varying and controllable ranges of electrical resistance aligned to the required sensitivity level of the application. The new suite of Loctite ECI 7000 series FSR materials allow product responses based on changing levels of force, as opposed to simply responding to force in general. Different intensities of force alter the materials conductivity, therefore controlling the device response for applications such as medical diagnostic systems, computer touch pads, and music and entertainment devices, among others.

Advanced Thermal Management Solutions

Also on show in the Henkel stand during Productronica India 2016 will be high performance Bergquist brand thermal management materials. A complete suite of thermal interface solutions, both in pad and liquid dispensed formats, allows manufacturers to select the medium and thermal conductivity required to comply with specific application requirements.

Visitors to the Henkel booth can learn more about award-winning Gap Pad thermal interface materials, which deliver excellent conformability, low stress and effective thermal control. For processes that require automated, high-volume solutions in addition challenging architecture accommodation, Henkels Gap Filler materials provide superior thermal conductivity and ultra-conforming properties. Gap Filler thermal products are well-suited for fragile, low-stress applications including power electronics and discrete devices. (www.henkel-adhesives.com/thermal)

Additional technical detail on thermal management strategies will be shared during a presentation by Henkel Business Development Manager, Holger Schuh, on September 22 at 4:40 p.m. as part of the Session 3 Quality and Reliability conference track.

Structural Adhesives for Display Technologies

Henkels full portfolio of structural and hot melt adhesives for various display and peripheral applications will be featured in Henkel booth #3155 throughout the three-day event. Adhesives for cover glass assembly to eliminate mechanical techniques, as well as formulations to facilitate bezel and battery cover bonding are among the many enabling display technologies from Henkel.
