When to Use Silicones in Electronics Applications

11:30 - 12:10

When it comes to adhesives and sealants, there are a variety of chemistries to choose from. Epoxies, polyurethanes, UV-curing adhesives, methacrylates, and others all have their own strengths, but when should you be considering silicones? With experience and expertise in many kinds of adhesives, Peter will be focusing on the particular areas that silicones can provide an advantage in electronics applications, including potting, sealing, ruggedising, and component protection.

5 THINGS YOU WILL LEARN DURING THIS SESSION:

  1. What is silicone? What are the properties and cure mechanisms
  2. What advantages do silicones offer
  3. Specific applications in electronics where silicones might be suitable
  4. How to dispense/apply silicones
  5. What questions to ask your adhesives supplier about silicones
