Dow Corning Corp. has introduced its EA-4600 Hot Melt Room-Temperature Vulcanization Black Adhesive for improved assembly of consumer electronics and other demanding high-volume manufacturing operations.
This latest addition to the company's growing portfolio of advanced hot melt adhesives is formulated to dispense easily and achieve instant green strength, Dow Corning said, which allows electronic assemblies to be handled immediately after its application.
Dow Corning EA-4600 Hot Melt Adhesive is a solventless, one-component, moisture-cure silicone material that offers longer open time and pot life, Dow Corning said, as well as lower odor and lower levels of volatility compared to conventional organic-based hot melt adhesives. It is available from Dow Corning distributors worldwide.
