November 2, 2011 -- Henkel Corporation will launch several new electronics assembly materials at Productronica, November 15-18 in Munich, Germany. The ABLESTIK ICP-4000 has been qualified to bond components to metal leadframes in plastic housings.
The high-end conductive silicone adhesive ABLESTIK ICP-4000 offers “flexibility and excellent conductivity” for automotive applications. ABLESTIK ICP-4000 is being used for automotive sensor products where components are bonded to metal leadframes inside plastic housings. This absorbs the stresses caused by the metal and plastic’s coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) mismatch, maintaining the bond and electrical interconnect between the component and the leadframe.
