Special grades of Master Bond's adhesives are widely employed in RF and microwave applications including communication, radar, navigation, power and MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit). Electrical performance is extremely critical for this unique industry. Our custom solutions offer exceptional electrical insulation properties with low loss tangent and low dielectric constant properties. Additionally, our silver filled electrically conductive adhesives offer superlative shielding effectiveness over a wide range of frequencies and can also be used for other applications requiring high electrical conductivity.
Due to the growing demands for more compact lower frequency electronic devices, efficient thermal management is of paramount importance. Our new age adhesives offer superior heat transfer capabilities and low coefficient of thermal expansion for use in applications such as power conversion modules, automotive engine control modules, LEDs and lighting modules.
