MacDermid Alpha Showcases Electrolube Solution at Productronica South China

MacDermid Alpha Showcases Full Spectrum of Electrolube Solution at Productronica South China, 15-17 November 2022, on the MacDermid Alpha Stand E17 in Hall 11

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions will be highlighting their unrivalled capabilities as a total process solutions provider at this year’s Productronica South China, which takes place at the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center, 15-17 November 2022, on the MacDermid Alpha Stand E17 in Hall 11.

MacDermid Alpha encompasses a full spectrum of industry leading innovative technologies from Alpha, Compugraphics, Electrolube, Kester and MacDermid Enthone brands, giving manufacturers a distinct advantage in sourcing all their application-specific needs in one place. MacDermid Alpha has been taking a proactive response where innovation is concerned and identifying key areas in the market, rather than a passive reactive approach. Essentially, MacDermid Alpha, supplies solutions across all aspects of the assembly process from PCB manufacturing, PCB assembly and even reclaim and recycling services.  

MacDermid Alpha will showcase its’ latest new low temperature solder material. Designed to mitigate warpage induced defects in temperature sensitive chip-scale packages, the ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 solder paste enhances electrochemical performance over existing low temperature solders and provides excellent compatibility when used in combination with other ALPHA solutions for contact rework applications . ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 enables superior wettability to minimize post reflow defects such as Non-Wet-Open (NWO) and Head-in-Pillow (HIP). Next generation devices require a larger footprint and thinner form factor design that deliver superior processing power over existing technologies. These next generation packages create challenges for assembly at traditional SMT reflow temperatures. ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 enables a reduction in peak reflow down to 175 °C to mitigate common warpage induced defects such as HiP and NWO to improve assembly yields.

Electrolube, the most recent addition to the MacDermid Alpha family of brands  is a specialist manufacturer for the electro-chemicals industry. The brand has amassed a wealth of local knowledge and experience pertaining to China’s domestic market since opening facilities in China twenty years ago.  The acquisition has proven successful for both MacDermid Alpha and Electrolube, the latter benefitting from an expansion of their Chinese Technical Support team. The brand has also recently launched a new generation of bio-based conformal coatings and encapsulation resins.  Electrolube’s new bio-based products build upon their already strong portfolio of solutions.  Not only do these new products offer environmental benefits but they also provide high performance protection and increase reliability.

Featured at the show will be a new bio-based polyurethane resins, UR5645, is a tough, two-part encapsulation system ideal for a wide range of applications including automotive and marine. UR5645 is a highly versatile resin with an operating temperature range of -50 to +150oC and is a low viscosity resin that enables a faster and more efficient potting process. It also provides excellent chemical resistance to acids, alkalis and fuels, ideally suited for the harshest conditions, such as those found in automotive applications.

Electrolube additionally offer a wide range of conformal coatings and thermal management materials. UVCL is a low viscosity coating with the capacity to cure within seconds of exposure to the correct dosage of UV light. UVCL is one of Electrolube’s next generation of VOC-free coatings, and the product’s low viscosity ensures that it is eminently suitable for selective spray equipment. The secondary moisture cure ensures even shadowed areas can be cured successfully.

Electrolube’s GF400 is an extremely versatile gap filling material, suitable for a wide variety of applications, including e-vehicles and chargers. This two-part silicone-based filling material cures at room temperature but the cure can also be accelerated by heat. An impressive thermal conductivity of 4.0 W/m.K is a feature of this gap filler and following cure, a low modulus elastomer avoids pump out phenomenon.
