IMAGINE: Proven Solutions for
From conventional to hybrid and electric
automobiles, today's vehicles rely on electronics to improve safety,
reliability, emissions, energy efficiency and comfort far more than ever. At
the same time, automotive electronics must perform reliably despite long
exposure to extreme temperatures, humidity, and mechanical stress. In addition,
the increasing functionality and power density of onboard electronics often
generates more heat which can also degrade performance and
Dow Corning can help you navigate
these challenges with over seven decades of expertise and one of the industry’s
broadest portfolios of advanced silicone
conformal coatings. We can help you find the optimal materials solution
Dissipate damaging heat: With one of the industry's broadest
portfolios of thermally conductive silicones, Dow Corning can meet needs
ranging from standard to the most advanced electronics applications. For
integrated and powerful components, our advanced compounds and greases deliver
high thermal conductivity and low thermal resistivity at thin bond lines. For
more stringent needs our thermally conductive adhesives offer a unique
combination of high thermal conductivity and strong dielectric properties.
Additionally our gap filler products can bring customers the right combination
of thermal performance and economics.
Bond and seal housings: Our high-performance silicone adhesives and
sealants deliver excellent unprimed adhesion for your lid seal and fixturing
applications. Able to adhere firmly to FR4, polybutylene terephthalate,
aluminum, copper and other common materials, their strong bonds remain flexible
over a wide temperature range and they adapt well to materials with mismatched
coefficients of thermal expansion.
Encapsulate components: Able to embed complex parts, our low modulus
silicone encapsulants deliver long-lasting protection against moisture, extreme
temperatures, salt and severe mechanical stresses stemming from vibration or
thermal cycling. Our ultra-low modulus silicone gels minimize both
contamination and stress to protect the most fragile wires.
Coat boards and assemblies: Our high-performance conformal coatings
offer innovative options for reducing weight by helping to eliminate mechanical
screws and fasteners. These materials offer time-tested performance under high
and low temperature conditions, making them the proven solutions for protecting
your most sensitive electronics.
Combined with Dow Corning's design
and processing expertise, our materials offer breakthrough solutions to help
you develop more dependable electronic components and assemblies that improve
the performance, durability, fuel-economy, emissions and safety of your vehicle
As an established global leader in
silicone materials and expertise, we deliver reliable and consistent supply and
