NuSil Technology expands its line of electronic packaging materials

February 1, 2006 — /MARKET WIRE/ — CARPINTERIA, Calif. — NuSil Technology, a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for military, aerospace, electronics and photonics, recently announced that it has expanded its line of electronic packaging materials (EPMs).

All materials in this line will have low outgassing properties to prevent contamination. NuSil’s electronic packaging materials have undergone extensive processing and maintain weight losses of less than 1 percent after exposure to temperatures exceeding 275°C for one hour. Other materials currently used in this industry typically exhibit weight losses of four to five times that of the NuSil materials under similar conditions.

Among the new offerings are potting and encapsulating materials; static-dissipative and glop top materials; dielectric gels; and thermal interface materials (TIMs), which come in grease, adhesive and gel forms.

“With the development of smaller, hotter devices; opto-electronics devices; and the need of many electronics systems to perform in harsh environments, NuSil is gearing up to be the premier provider of low outgassing custom silicone materials,” said Brian Nash, vice president of sales and marketing. “We believe that these materials — when exposed to high temperatures — will result in lower outgassed silicone contaminants and will surpass any standard material on the market today.”
