Silver Conductive Coating

EMS #12684-15

The EMS Silver Conductive Coating is designed for the bonding of many materials such as metals, ceramics, rubbers, and plastics, as they are used in electronic parts, where excellent adhesion is required. It is a silver-based conductive adhesive that possesses the following characteristics:

Technology: Epoxy

  • Chemical type: Epoxy
  • Appearance (resin): Silver paste
  • Appearance (hardener): Clear to amber liquid
  • Components: Two-part resin and hardener
  • Viscosity: Thick paste

Cure Application: Room Temperature Cure

  • Key substrates: Electronic components
  • Other application areas: Thermally conductive
  • Dispense method: Syringe
  • Operating temperature: up to 80°C+

Typical Properties of Uncured Material

Specific gravity @ 25°C 2.5
Hardness, Shore D 89
Mix ratio, resin: Hardener 100:6
Pot Life 90 minutes

Typical Curing Performance

Recommended conditions for curing are exposure to room temperature heat for 24-48 hours. Rate of cure and final strength depends on the residence time at the curve temperature.

Cure Speed vs. Time, Temperature

The graph shown below illustrates the rate of torque strength developed with time at different temperatures. The times shown are defined from the moment the adhesive reaches cure temperature. In practice, research or experimentation, total oven time may be longer to allow for heat-up period.
