HSINCHU, Taiwan—General Silicones Co. Ltd. has developed what the company calls "new and improved" Anisotropic Conductive Film bonding sheets suitable for LCD panel manufacturing and other industries using a hot-pressing process.
The silicone products maker said the new-and-improved ACF sheets address the demand for higher resolutions in the panel industry "and enhance the pressing process to ensure accuracy."
General Silicones said the display panel market is "moving toward narrower borders and finer pitch design requirements. Avoiding size variations of the electrodes due to pressure variations and ensuing accurate positioning is getting highly essential, and therefore the heat process has to be finely controlled."
The company can customize ACF Bonding Silicone Rubber Sheets with different composite materials, such as Teflon coated glass fiber composite and polyimide film. GS's ACF Bonding Sheets are available in four different varieties: silicone rubber; silicone rubber and Teflon coated glass fiber; silicone rubber and polyimide film; and single glass fiber layer sandwiched between silicone rubber.
