Silicone Solutions for Advanced PCB Systems Assembly
Silicone enables the development of devices
that are easier to use and more powerful, versatile, and cost
Without silicone, many of the advanced assembly innovations we take for
granted today might not exist.

many uses for fascinating silicones.
On the corner, colorful digital billboards containing
high-brightness LEDs assembled and protected with silicones capture attention
while conserving energy. Read Silicones and
LEDs – paving the way to a brighter future.
In your car, silicones insulate and protect sensitive automotive
applications and modules that must perform in hot, harsh engine compartment
In your home, silicones are enabling a new generation of “thinking”
Why silicone materials excel in advanced circuit board assembly
- Silicones can be designed to be either electrically conducting or
- Silicones engineered to be thermally conductive have thermal management
capabilities that minimize heat build-up.
- Silicones can provide the optical clarity and light
transmittance required for many advanced photonic and LED
- Silicones offer the adhesion, flexibility, and resilience required to
seal and protect devices from moisture, dust, and mechanical stress
caused by impact and vibration.
- Silicones resist heat and cold, thermal shock, oxidation, moisture,
chemicals, and ultraviolet radiation. This enables them to perform reliably
under harsh conditions.
- Silicones are more durable than many organic materials and perform
longer under certain conditions.
- Silicones have flowing, wetting, adhesion, and cure properties that help
speed and simplify processing. Plus many silicones are repairable, which
reduces scrap and waste.
Silicones give circuit board module designers and manufacturers
incredible design freedom and processing flexibility.
The proven performance of silicones can speed new product development.
The unique processing properties of silicones can increase productivity and
reduce manufacturing costs.
The improved reliability and service life of devices fabricated with
silicones make them the choice of consumers everywhere.
