MacDermid Alpha Launches ALPHA HiTech Adhesives and Encapsulants


Reading time ( words)

The assembly division of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions to launch the ALPHA HiTech product series of SMD adhesives, UV adhesives and encapsulants which are designed for a wide range of applications.

“We are pleased to introduce our first phase of HiTech products into the ALPHA portfolio,” said Jimmy Shu, director of marketing for Asia-Pacific. “With this new suite of products, MacDermid Alpha is well-situated to capitalize on many emerging trends in the electronics industry and offer customers additional support to solve their unique assembly challenges”.

ALPHA HiTech SMD Adhesives are one component, intermediate temperature, fast heat curable surface mount products. They are designed to hold chip components in place during the wave soldering process.  Each product is formulated to optimally be used for either dispensing or printing applications.

They are well suited for wave soldering processes requiring soldering on non-through hole components such transistors, capacitors and small outline transistors (SOT). Industry segments with this process requirement are power supply, battery chargers, LED drivers, smart meters and white goods assembly.

ALPHA HiTech UV Adhesives are one component, ultraviolet curable materials which can be used to mechanically bond substrates together or encapsulate components at below 25°C. The instant curing capability of these products, within seconds under UV exposure, makes it ideal for production processes with high throughput requirements. They are formulated for applications in industry segments such as Mobile (e.g. main PCBs, wireless charger components, camera modules), computing (e.g. CD-ROM, optical pick ups) and displays (e.g. LCD TV).

ALPHA HiTech Encapsulants are one component, intermediate temperature, fast heat curable materials which are designed to mechanically protect assembled chips and encapsulated IC devices from dropping off or cracking. The applications include the portables such as smartphones and smartcards which require increase of mechanical reliability.
