Inherent Advantages of Silicones

Advantages of Silicones Based on Their Inherent Properties

FeatureBenefit
Excellent thermal stability (as low as -45 to >260ºC)Enables packages to pass common industry reliability and lead-free reflow temperatures
Very low moisture uptakePackages can be designed to conform to industry reliability standards
Variable modulus (typically less than 1 MPa)Design flexibility to absorb stress within the package
Excellent adhesion to a wide variety of materialsImproved device reliability because of delamination resistance
Low ionic content (typically ionic levels <1 ppm)Minimized corrosion potential
Excellent optical properties (high light transmittance)Well-suited for near IR, visible, or UV wavelength applications
Dispensed or molded by a variety of techniquesEfficient automated assembly process
Wide range of viscosities availableReliable dispense and molding processes
