Silicone Adhesive applications for LED
LED designs are evolving quickly to meet ever more
challenging application demands, from higher LED temperatures to the use of
unfamiliar materials. So it is no surprise that demand for more innovative
adhesives is also on the rise.
For over seven decades, Dow Corning
has provided advanced silicone adhesives for the most rigorous electronic
applications, and now we offer our expertise and broad portfolio of solutions
to LED designers.
Our broad selection of silicone
adhesives delivers excellent unprimed adhesion to a variety of common
substrates including ceramics, reactive materials and filled plastics. As a
class of materials, silicones are especially suited for high-brightness LED
designs that require adhesives to maintain strong bonds at temperatures as high
as 150°C. Silicone adhesives from Dow Corning withstand temperatures
ranging from -45°C to 200°C to ensure reliable performance over the expected
50,000 hours of an LED’s useful lifetime.
Silicone adhesives from Dow Corning
enhance the ease and flexibility of processing operations. Our products
encompass one-part moisture cure grades – for simple, cost-efficient
room-temperature processing – and one- or two-part heat cure solutions that
speed processing and help accelerate time to market. And, unlike competitive
materials, our silicone formulations are often solventless, minimizing the need
for special storage, handling or ventilation.
Dow Corning silicone adhesives also
deliver outstanding dielectric performance, as well as mechanical and stress
dampening properties. Plus, select optical-grade adhesives offer new options
for bonding LED lensing elements with little or no impact on
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, our
expert application engineers will work with you to understand your application
and identify how to best solve your needs.
