Conductive adhesives are materials that allow the flow of electricity along with adhesion and are also known as cold solder. These adhesives are mainly deployed for electrical conductivity and easy repair through adhesion or bonding. Different types of conductive adhesives such as epoxy, polyurethane, silicone, and acrylate are used in numerous specific end use industries. Among all types, epoxy type of conductive adhesive has a wide range of application and it is expected to hold high share in the global conductive adhesives market mainly due to easy and short production process. In electrical and electronics industry, it replaces the process of soldering. It has many advantages over conventional soldering process such as lower curing temperature than normal soldering temperature, effective solution for temperature sensitive substrates, more flexible than solder with high capacity to withstand vibrations and lead & solvent free nature.
It is also used in different applications depending on its type of electrical conductivity such as isotropic and anisotropic. Isotropic conductive adhesives conduct electricity in all directions and anisotropic conductive adhesives conduct electricity in only one direction. Isotropic conductive adhesives are used in chip contacting and bonding electrically conductive SMDs and anisotropic adhesives are used in many sensitive structures on circuit boards such as LCD connections and bonding antenna structures on RFIDs.
