Dow Corning to Discuss How Two Innovative Silicone Adhesives Benefit Advanced Assembly at IPC APEX EXPO 2017

Brian Chislea, application engineer for Dow Corning, is presenting a poster at IPC APEX EXPO 2017 in San Diego, Calif., that highlights how two new classes of advanced silicone adhesives are expanding design flexibility for advanced assembly solutions. Titled “New Silicone Adhesives for Advanced Assembly Solutions,” his presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb.15, 2017 from 10:00 to 10:30 a.m. and again from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. during the conference’s Design Track.

In his presentation, Chislea will outline Dow Corning®  Silicone Hot Melt Adhesive and Thermal Radical Cure technologies, which both deliver reliable adhesion to a broad range of substrates – including newer materials such as engineering plastics. 

Dow Corning® Silicone Hot Melt Adhesives are uniquely formulated to dispense easily and achieve instant green strength to allow faster assembly. The company’s innovative Thermal Radical Cure Adhesive is a simple, one-part silicone formulation that cures rapidly and at lower temperatures from the inside out to greatly accelerate processing, reduce energy use and lower material costs. Chislea’s presentation will also cover important design considerations when applying both materials, including pot life, adhesion strength, shear strength, UV exposure and substrate materials.

Chislea will be onsite and available during the conference to meet with media and answer questions. To arrange an interview, please see the contacts below.
