Adhesives, Sealants and Coatings for the Electronics Industry
Author: James J. Licari, Dale W. Swanson
Category: Adhesives & Sealants
6 x 9, Hardcover
The second edition of this widely accepted industrial guide contains descriptions of more than 2,500 adhesives, sealants, and coatings, which are available to the electronics and related industries. The book, greatly expanded from the previous edition, is the result of information received from 80 manufacturers and distributors of these products. The data, including product specifications, represent selections from the manufacturers descriptions made at no cost to, nor influence from, the makers or distributors of these materials. Only the most recent information has been included. It is believed that all of the products listed are currently available, which will be of interest to readers concerned with product discontinuances.
The market for electronics adhesives, sealants, and coatings continues to be an expanding one, with sales showing consistently strong growth. 1990 sales were 0 million, and 1995 sales are projected at a 9% growth rate, to be 5 million (in constant 1990 dollars). A large segment of the demand is for surface mount technology and other miniaturization efforts. Diverse products such as printed circuit boards, camcorders, VCRs, and desktop computers are constantly being upgraded with new and better adhesive agents, often made of high-performance specialty materials. As "environmentally friendly" products have become more desirable, the industry is working toward using less solvents, removing them completely where possible, and replacing them waterborne, hot-melt, or totally solid products. In addition, the industry is always seeking stronger and/or faster products. Automotive electronics have also created a niche for silicon-based adhesives that can withstand broad temperature fluctuations and corrosive environments. Each product in the book lists the following information as available, in the manufacturers own words:
- Company name and product category.
- Tradesman and product number.
- Product description and specifications (from the supplier).
- Typical applications and uses.
