New Henkel Loctite Underfill Material Available Now from Ellsworth Adhesives Europe

Reading time ( words)

The newly launched Henkel Loctite ECCOBOND UF 1173 is now available to order from Ellsworth Adhesives Europe, adding to the supplier’s impressive range of specialty chemicals. 

This one component, epoxy underfill has been created for the next-generation of high reliability electronics applications. It is designed to provide a uniform and void-free encapsulating underfill, which maximises a device’s temperature cycling capability and dissipates stress away from solder joints and connections.

Loctite ECCOBOND UF 1173 is fast curing and provides essential interconnect protection from shock, drop and vibration. It can be jet or needle dispensed and is fast flowing in and around tight spaces. Furthermore, the innovative encapsulant has a low coefficient of thermal expansion and exhibits high glass transition (Tg) temperature capability of 155°C. Once applied, it boosts mechanical strength and provides robust environmental protection.

Henkel’s new underfill system offers high performance in electronic applications for the aerospace and automotive sectors. The increasing use of fine-pitch array devices such as chip scale packages (CSP) and ball grid arrays (BGA) in these areas mean that interconnect protection is essential for long-term durability and performance. ECCOBOND UF 1173 can withstand the high operating temperatures which exist within smaller, higher-functioning devices whilst maintaining a high level of performance and processing.

Manufactured with health and safety as a key focus, ECCOBOND UF 1173 does not contain any reportable REACH SVCHCs (as of June 2018), and is not CMR classified.

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
