ANE-16120 is a solvent-free, single-component, electrically insulating adhesive for mounting components on a substrate when the bond does not need to be electrically conductive. This is a low viscosity version of ATE-10120.
The rheology of the ANE-16120 adhesive has been designed for application by microdispenser, pad or screen printing. In all these applications, the long pot life and absence of solvent ensure that the product remains at a reasonably constant viscosity and facilitates machine adjustments. However, curing remains very quick just little as a few minutes at 140-150°C. After curing, the ANE-16120 adhesive sticks well on all types of substrate as well as showing thermal stability up to around 350°C for a few seconds.
METHOD OF USE
In order to obtain a non-porous adhesive joint, treatment under a vacuum of 1 mm of
mercury for 15 min is desirable when the product is not supplied in a syringe which can
be fitted directly onto the dispenser. In the absence of stirring, provide a container which is at least six times higher than the initial height of the mixture.
Surfaces to be stuck should be clean and free from dust or grease. Use a flame or
solvent vapors if possible. Avoid chlorinated solvents which encourage corrosion. Apply the adhesive with :
- a micro-dispenser
- a metal screen printing screen with a mesh size between 140 and 325
- a pad
- a spatula
Cure according to one of the curing cycles which is compatible with the component, the
substrate and the manufacturing conditions. In practice, cycles of 20 minutes at 100°C
and 1-2 minutes at 140°C are widely used.
The following post-curings are recommended :
- .2-3 hours at 100°C
- .1-2 hours at 125°C
- .30 min.-1 hour at 150°C
TYPICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CURED SYSTEM
The properties mentioned below were obtained after curing for 1h at 150°C.
They were determined following measurements carried out in the laboratory in a small
number of tests. They are values given by way of guidance, and do not constitute a guarantee. It will be for the user, in all cases, to carry out his/her own tests to determine whether the ANE-16120 adhesive can be used for the particular application which he/she has in mind.
