Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, today introduced new Dow Corning EA-2000 Silicone Adhesive, a high-performance terminal sealant for faster, more cost-effective manufacturing of thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD displays. This innovative, low-viscosity, room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone sealant combines high flowability and good adhesion with a fast, non-corrosive cure to facilitate higher throughputs and thinner, more reliable display architectures. Like other silicone materials, Dow Corning EA-2000 Silicone Adhesive provides long-lasting durability compared with organic materials.

“As the accelerating global demand for tablets, smart phones and other consumer electronics continues to drive the growth of LCD displays, panel manufacturers need advanced new materials to help speed production, control costs and improve the reliability of their devices,” said Hu Nan, global  marketing segment leader for Displays at Dow Corning. “New EA-2000 Adhesive exemplifies how Dow Corning pays close attention to market trends and other industry factors to innovate collaboratively with customers and deliver the targeted silicone solutions they need to compete and succeed in today’s fast-moving marketplace.”

A Valuable new addition to Dow Corning's already braid portfolio of terminal sealants, module assembly solutions and easy-to-clean coatings for display applications, EA-2000 Adhesive's low viscosity allows fast and simple automated or manual dispensing with conventional equipment, minimizing conversion costs. This advanced new terminal sealant also cures quickly without the need for ultraviolet lamps to further streamline processing operations.

Unlike many organic sealants, EA-2000 Adhesive is solventless, and ensures a durable seal against moisture, dust and mechanical shock. Its non-corrosive cure reduces risk to sensitive metal components, and the sealant delivers unprimed adhesion to many materials – including reactive metals, ceramics and glass, as well as selected laminates, resins and plastics. In addition, Dow Corning EA-2000 Adhesive delivers excellent dielectric properties for optimal TFT LCD display performance, as well as good thermal stability in most conditions.
