Creative Materials introduces a new series of high-temperature electrically conductive inks, adhesives and dielectric coatings.
Unlike conventional conductive materials, these products feature a unique high-continuous-operation temperature, making them especially well suited for extreme conditions found in furnace, heater, and aerospace applications. These products have a useful temperature range of -55°C to 350°C continuously and are stable to 410°C for short durations.
They can be applied by screen printing, dipping and syringe dispensing. These products feature excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates such as polyimide, polyester, ITO sputtered surfaces, glass and a variety of other surfaces, without the addition of treatment via acid or plasma etch.
Two products in this series include: 110-19UT, an electrically conductive ink and adhesive, and 122-01UT, a dielectric ink and adhesive.

Inventory management should be simple; after all, it is how many of us learned to count. ERP solutions have become complex yet cannot solve our immediate supply-chain and manufacturing challenges unaided. It’s time to unfold the root-causes behind key issues and reveal the secrets for success in modern inventory management which have a significant impact on any manufacturing business.

Thanks to marketing and advances in technology, we have all come to expect that the electronic products we buy will be closely aligned to our individual and specific lifestyle or business requirements. This expected variability, in personal function and style, as well as regulatory compliance and a changing global economic landscape, has made designing and producing new products a challenging prospect. And, on top of the resulting “high-mix, low-volume” production cycles, increasingly more products contain electronic components in varying levels that heighten the complexity of design and manufacturing.

At SMTA International 2021, Nolan Johnson spoke with Rob DiMatteo of BTU International about the current shift in market drivers, pain points from customers, and what he expects to see in the near future. Chip shortages and port delays are just two of the challenges facing BTU’s customers. As general manager of BTU, DiMatteo wants his company to excel at customer service despite these challenges. He also previews a new flux management technology for keeping reflow ovens extremely clean, calling it a significant breakthrough.
