The new Hot Melt Adhesive
builds lasting bonds
with innovation


Imagine: Slimmer smart devices manufactured more simply.

For years, smart devices have continued to trend toward slimmer, sleeker exteriors, which still incorporate numerous, complex parts and assemble together quickly and durably during manufacture. To cope with these often conflicting trends, the industry needs high-performance adhesives that can quickly form strong bonds to support innovative new designs and to accelerate production cycles.

Dow Corning offers advanced silicone Hot Melt Adhesives for next-generation smart devices. These reactive, moisture-cure adhesives are applied as a hot liquid melt that cools at room temperature to quickly form strong but flexible viscoelastic bonds to plastic and metal substrates that are commonly used in smart devices.

This silicone hot melt adhesive offers lower total cost of ownership compared to double-sided tape and conventional thermal cure adhesives. Select Hot Melt Adhesive products actually enable a 5x improvement in the total cost of ownership vs. double-sided tape, based on 100 million smart phone window bonding operations that incorporate 0.8 mm bezels.

Key features and benefits of our Hot Melt Adhesives portfolio include:

  • Improved dispensability: Good dispensability using standard hot melt dispensers, including jet dispensing applicator.

  • Enhanced productivity: Uniquely formulated to allow precision microbeading (≤0.5-mm bead width) and achieve instant green strength when dispensed, our high-performance Hot Melt Adhesives allow handling and assembly operations to proceed before full cure.

  • Easy reworkability: When exposed to high temperatures these advanced materials soften to allow easy reworkability, but regain their typical properties after cooling.

  • Improved reliability: After cure, the proven chemistry of our innovative silicone adhesives offers reliable, long-lasting protection against chemical, moisture, dust and other environmental contaminants to help extend the life and performance of your smart device design. Additionally, due to silicone’s natural flexibility, these adhesives can absorb impact energy to enhance shock and impact resistance.
