Silicone Hot Melt Adhesive for Automotive Assembly
Automotive electronics have been following a trend towards becoming slimmer and more complex with small parts that are needed to be assembled quickly with high durability. Silicone hot melt adhesives for automotive electronics are formulated to support to speed up production cycles and to support new designs. These innovative adhesives are applied as a hot liquid melt that cools at 70°F to form a strong viscoelastic bond to metal or plastic substrates.
Key features of these advanced silicone hot melt adhesives include enhanced productivity, improved reliability, and easy workability. Silicone hot melt adhesives are formulated to instantly achieve green strength when dispensed. This will enhance productivity by allowing handling and assembly operations to proceed before full cure. When the material is exposed to high temperatures, it will soften for easy workability. It will regain its original property once cooled. Silicone hot melt adhesives provide long lasting protection from chemicals, dust, moisture, and other contaminates extending product life and performance.
Silicone hot melt adhesives for manufacturing offers lower total cost of ownership compared to conventional thermal care adhesives and double sided tapes. DOW hot melt adhesives offer easy removal and reapplication within 24 hours, instant adhesion without primer, long open and pot life. Silicone hot melt adhesives available include:
DOW silicone hot melt adhesives are reactive, neutral cure silicone materials that can be melted and applied as a liquid melt. When cooled, it becomes a solid viscoelastic adhesive with enhanced physical properties. Due to silicone’s natural flexibility, these hot melt adhesives can absorb impact energy to enhance impact and shock resistance. An innovative silicone solution to manufacture smarter electronic devices. For more information in regards to DOW Hot Melt Adhesives for Automotive assembly, Ask an expert.
