MacDermid Alpha’s Electrolube Exhibits Plant-Based Resins and Coatings at SMTconnect

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions is a global supplier of integrated solutions in the circuit, assembly and semiconductor sectors that provide unmatched capabilities in the design and manufacture of electrical devices and will be hosting Electrolube’s coating and resin technologies at this year’s SMTconnect. Introducing the latest advances. Nuremberg Messe from 10th-12th in May.

The MacDermid Alpha brand Electrolube uses the latest eco-friendly bio-based conformal coatings and resins on the Hall 4 stand 125. It incorporates a fast-curing UV curable coating and UR5645 high performance PU resin. The advanced new UVCLX is the world’s first of its kind. UVCLX is a solvent-free, bio-based conformal coating that is industry-specific and offers the highest levels of protection in fast processing times. UVCLX applied via a selective coating machine is made with 75% of the organic content obtained from renewable resources and is exposed to LED-365nm UV light for a short period of time and then touch-dried. It surpasses traditional UV cure coatings. With the exception of other traditional UV curable coatings, full cure is guaranteed within 24 hours due to its secondary chemical cure mechanism. It can even cure shadows in a few hours. UVCLX is innovative compared to traditional UV curable coatings, which can take several weeks at a time to fully cure, but some shadow areas remain uncured. UVCLX significantly improves manufacturing time and offers even higher levels of performance, including resistance to cracks during thermal shock cycles.

A new bio-based polyurethane resin, the UR5645 is a durable two-part encapsulation system developed to protect electrical components in harsh environments. It features 63.33% excellent bio-content. It also has a very low water absorption rate and can be continuously immersed in hot and deep water, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, including automobiles and ships. UR5645 is a very versatile resin with an operating temperature range of -50 to +150.o oC, (160o oC) for a short 30-minute excursion, depending on the application and shape. UR5645 is a low viscosity resin that helps with faster and more efficient potting processes. It also has excellent chemical resistance to acids, alkalis and fuels, making it ideal for the harshest conditions such as automotive applications.
