Dow Corning Earns Prestigious R&D Award for New Silicone Adhesive Technology Developed with Delphi Automotive
Dow Corning Corp. announced today that a silicone adhesive
technology it recently developed alongside Delphi Automotive PLC has earned one
of R&D Magazine’s prestigious 2015 R&D 100 Awards.
Dow Corning and Delphi received the award for
Dow Corning® EA-7100 Adhesive, a product initially
developed for Delphi, which was grappling with several adhesion challenges. The
adhesive is based on novel silicone chemistry that significantly expands design
options for automotive electronics and other applications by enabling strong
bonds to a wide variety of substrates. Formulated with patented new silicone
chemistry, Dow Corning EA-7100 Adhesive (PDF) offers more options for designing
next-generation electronics including control units, sensors, lighting and
display modules, and offers advantages such as greatly accelerated processing
speed, and reduced energy use.
"This award recognizes what Dow Corning does best every day - working
alongside customers to develop innovative silicone-based products that solve
challenges and create opportunities for our customers to compete and win,"
said Ganesh Kailasam, senior vice president and chief technology officer.
"While this technology is helping advance the automotive electronics
industry, there are countless other applications that could benefit."
"The R&D 100 awards are often referred to as the "Oscars of
Innovation," and highlight significant technology inventions of the
past year. The award has historically honored many of the leading minds in
invention, including Dean Kamen, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Buzz Aldrin, astronaut
Scott J. Kelly, Kary Mullis, and Hugh Herr.
