New Dow Corning® CL-1000 Optical Silicone Binder Extends Thermal and Optical Performance for Chip-Scale LED Package Designs
Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and
innovation, today introduced Dow Corning® CL-1000 Optical Silicone
Binder, a new, more thermally stable, high refractive index (RI) material
available only in China that is formulated to expand design options for
high-power chip-scale LED packaging (CSP). The latest addition to the company's
portfolio of advanced solutions for LED lighting, Dow Corning
CL-1000 Binder offers best-in-class thermal stability and is optimized for
compression molding processes.
"The growing adoption of chip-scale packaging is enabling lighting
designs that pack increasing numbers of LED dies more densely together in
smaller form factors," said Takuhiro Tsuchiya, global marketing manager at
Dow Corning. "CL-1000 Optical Silicone Binder is Dow Corning's
response to the rapidly rising temperatures within these emerging applications.
A more thermally stable iteration of our high-RI optical materials, this new
product is formulated specifically to help enhance the robustness of high-power
Validated through Dow Corning's stringent testing, the superior thermal
stability of Dow Corning CL-1000 Optical Silicone Binder enabled it
to exhibit lower degradation and improved maintenance of mechanical properties
vs. other high-RI silicone encapsulants after 2,000 hours exposure to
temperatures above 180°C. The new high-RI material also delivers excellent
photo-stability with high clarity to further support reliable performance over
the life of LED devices.
New Dow Corning CL-1000 Binder demonstrates good conformance
with highly reflective Dow Corning® WR-3001 and WR-3100 Die Edge
Coat materials, enabling CSP packaging with enhanced reliability over longer
periods. The product's high Shore D60 hardness also enables LED packaging to
withstand dicing operations.
Dow Corning CL-1000 Optical Silicone Binder leverages the same
phenyl silicone chemistry as Dow Corning's other industry-leading high RI
optical encapsulants, which can help optimize the efficiency of next-generation
LED lighting designs without costly investments in more powerful LED dies.
A market leader in materials, expertise and collaborative innovation for LED
lighting concepts, Dow Corning offers solutions that span the entire LED
value chain, adding reliability and efficiency for sealing, protecting,
adhering, cooling and shaping light across all lighting applications.
