Conductive Epoxy Can Replace Solder

In high-flexibility applications where stress cracking is a problem, such as in chip-on-flex or flex-on-glass products, Loctite 3882 electrically conductive epoxy adhesive can replace solder. The single-component, silver-filled epoxy cures in 24 hours at 23°C or in one hour at 110°C and can be dispensed by means of a syringe or by stencil/screen printing.The material is both electrically and thermally conductive and develops strong, durable bonds between many materials. These include metals, ceramics, glass, laminates and molded plastics. Thermal conductivity is rated at >1.5W/m°C.
