IMAGINE: Shielding components, modules and boards from shorts, shock and stress

Shielding components, modules and boards from shorts, shock and stressAll electronic modules and boards depend on dielectric materials to insulate leads, wires and other components against crosstalk. But not all dielectric materials perform equally. Many organic solutions turn brittle with heat or age, or do not fully protect delicate elements against environmental factors such as ultraviolet light, chemicals, vibration or mechanical stress caused by thermal cycling.

Dow Corning’s industry-leading portfolio of silicone-based dielectric materials combines reliable insulation with value-added performance and protection for applications spanning the entire electronics value chain.

In addition to insulating packaged components and board assemblies, low modulus silicone coatings and encapsulants from Dow Corning provide excellent protection against mechanical shock and vibration. For applications subject to thermal cycling, we offer a range of silicone gels that provide a flexible, almost fluid dielectric coating. These advanced materials insulate and protect delicate parts – such as solder joints and wire bonds – from the effects of thermal expansion. This explains why our products are often the materials of choice for electronics rated to perform reliably at temperatures ranging from -45°C to 200°C and above.

More than a world-class materials supplier, Dow Corning is an expert and dedicated collaborator. If our product finder cannot identify an off-the shelf solution that meets your precise specifications, or if you are looking for application expertise and support please contact us.
