Creative Materials introduces a new series of anisotropically conductive B-stageable silver-filled epoxy adhesives, our 128-32 series. These products can be applied by screen-printing, dipping, and syringe dispensing. These products feature excellent adhesion to a variety of metallic contact pad compositions, as well as other substrates.
Applications for the 128-32 series include conductive splicing of ribbon cables, electrical attachment of surface-mounted devices, and bonding of flex circuits to PC boards and electroluminescent panels. The 128-32 series is especially useful in preventing shorts in applications where closely spaced contacts is a concern. 128-32FP features a finer pitch than traditional anisotropic conductive materials. In addition, 128-32 product series offers a faster cure at lower temperatures, snap cure at higher temperatures, and longer working time. The 128-32 system features excellent thermal stability.
Other products in this series can provide custom versions specific to the target pad size and pitch. In addition, 128-32-F series are B-stageable film versions of the product.

In a market that is trying to catch up with increasing customer demands and quickly ship products out the back door, no electronics manufacturing plant can afford to lose any time or resources during the production process. Manufacturers are forced to do more with less and get the most out of every single precious component.

After living through more than two years of the pandemic, we are very aware of the issues facing the electronics industry. We have witnessed months of factory shutdowns, labor disruptions due to a reduced workforce, and country, regional, and citywide COVID regulations and shutdowns. I will describe some of the issues we’ve been facing, and then explain how we learned to be creative and look for the silver linings in these disruptions.
