Silicones have long been known for durable dielectric insulation, as
barriers against environmental contaminants and for their stress-relieving
shock and vibration absorption. They can sustain their physical and electrical
properties over a wide range of temperature, humidity and other harsh
Meeting challenging needs
Capitalizing on these basic properties, Dow Corning® brand silicone LED (light
emitting diode) materials can be designed to meet the challenging needs of the
LED market, including high adhesion, high purity, moisture resistance, thermal
stability and optical transmittance. Silicones retain optical clarity at
elevated temperatures relative to organic materials.
For your needs on assembly or protection of LED-based lighting
modules, check out our extensive product line.
Each product line contains transparent grade materials suiting the exact needs
and purity that LED assemblies traditionally require.
Encapsulants or Gels for potting applications
Conformal Coatings for
circuit protection applications
Adhesives & Sealants for
Thermal Interface Materials
for heat dissipation
Dow Corning brand silicone LED materials can absorb stresses caused by
thermal cycling inside the package, protecting the chip and the bonding wires.
And with the electronics industry quickly moving toward lead-free processing,
silicone encapsulants are a natural fit for LED applications.
