Material Type
   Coating Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Electrically Conductive       Resins or compounds with a high degree of electrical conductivity (low resistivity) are used in applications such as anti-static or ESD control, EMI / RFI shielding, thick-film metallization, and device and board-level electrical interconnection. 
   Electrical Insulation / Dielectric       Dielectric compounds and electrical insulation materials form a barrier or isolator between electrical or electronic components. The voltage potential between the conductor and conductive components influence material selection, based on the dielectric strength to reduce shorting. Dielectric constant and loss tangent are important parameters in minimizing crosstalk between insulated circuit paths. 
   EMI / RFI Shielding Material       Polymers or elastomers are designed to provide shielding from electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). Typically, these compounds have a high degree of electrical conductivity. 
   ESD Control / Anti-static       Anti-static materials have relatively high electrical conductivity or low electrical resistivity. They are used in electronic, anti-static or electrostatic discharge (ESD) applications. 
   Thermal Compound / Thermally Conductive       Materials are designed to form a thermally conductive layer on the substrate, between components, or within a finished electronic product. Thermally conductive resins, thermoplastics, encapsulates, potting compounds, tapes, pads, adhesives and greases are often used between a heat-generating electrical device and a heat sink to improve heat dissipation. 
   Thermal / Heat Insulating       Thermally insulating resins, plastics, compounds and encapsulates provide a thermal barrier between components and a hot or cold source.

   Cure Type / Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   Thermosetting / Crosslinking       Thermoset plastics and thermoset resins are crosslinked polymeric resins that are cured using heat or heat and pressure. Cured thermoset resins generally have higher resistance to heat than thermoplastics, but cannot be melted down and reprocessed. Thermoset adhesives are crosslinked polymeric resins cured using heat or heat and pressure. Cured thermoset resins do not melt and flow when heated, but they may soften.  Phenolic, melamine and urea formaldehyde resins are thermosetting adhesives that offer strong bonds and good resistance to high temperatures.  Vulcanization is a thermosetting reaction involving the use of heat and/or pressure in conjunction with a vulcanizing agent, resulting in greatly increased strength, stability and elasticity in rubber-like materials. RTV silicone rubbers are room temperature vulcanizing materials.  The vulcanizing agent is a crosslinking compound or catalyst.  Sulfur is the traditional vulcanizing agent used with natural rubber. Silicones use moisture, acetic acid and other compounds as curing agents. 
   Room Temp. Cure / Vulcanizing       Room temperature curing or vulcanizing products are polymer resins or compounds that either cure or vulcanize at room temperature. Vulcanization is a thermosetting reaction involving the use of heat and/or pressure in conjunction with a vulcanizing agent. It results in greatly increased strength, stability, and elasticity in rubber-like materials. The vulcanizing agent is a crosslinking compound or catalyst. Silicones use moisture, acetic acid, and other compounds as curing or vulcanizing agents. 
   UV / Radiation Cured (also EB, Light)       UV or radiation cured adhesives use ultraviolet light, visible light, or electron beam (EB) irradiation to initiate curing, which forms a permanent bond without heating or excessive heat generation. One disadvantage of UV curing adhesives is the requirement that one substrate is UV transparent. Some UV resin systems employ a secondary curing mechanism to complete curing of adhesive regions shielded from the UV light. EB curable adhesives use electron beam radiation to cure or initiate curing.  The electron beam can penetrate through material that is opaque to UV light. 
   Single Component System       Single component adhesives or sealant systems consist of one resin that hardens by reaction with surface moisture, a surface applied activator-primer, or through the application of heat. 
   Two Component System       Two or multi-component adhesive or sealant systems consist of two or more resins or a resin and a hardener, crosslinker, activator or catalyst that, when combined, react and cure into a polymerized compound or bond. Two component systems are mixed and then applied. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialty, proprietary technologies or cure types.

Material System
   Chemical / Polymer System Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Epoxy (EP)       Epoxy resins (EP) exhibit high strength and low shrinkage during curing. Epoxies are known for their toughness and resistance to chemical and environmental damage. Most epoxies are two-part resins cured at room temperature. Some thermally-cured or thermoset one-part epoxies are also available. Depending on the formulation, epoxy resins are used as casting resins, potting agents, resin binders or laminating resins in fiberglass or composite construction. They are also used as encapsulates, electrical conductors in microelectronic packaging, and adhesives in structural bonding applications. 
   Phenolics / Formaldehyde Resins (Melamine, Furan, etc.)       Phenolic and formaldehyde resins are thermosetting molding compounds and adhesives that provide strong bonds and good resistance to high temperatures. Phenolic or phenol formaldehyde, urea formaldehyde, furan, and melamine resins are all part of this category. Generally, the most durable phenolic resin adhesives are made from chemicals of the phenol group and formaldehyde. Phenolic resins come in liquid, powder, and film form. Special phenolic resins are available that harden at moderate temperatures when mixed with suitable accelerators. Phenol-formaldehyde, resorcinol-formaldehyde, resol, and novalac resins are types of phenolic resins. Urea resin adhesives are made from urea, formaldehyde, and catalysts or hardeners. Urea formaldehyde resins can harden rapidly at moderate temperatures, but generally do not have the properties of phenolic resins. Melamine resins are made through a reaction of dicyandiamide with formaldehyde. Most of the resins in this group have excellent dielectric properties.  Furan formaldehyde (FF) resins are made by the polymerization or poly-condensation of furfural, furfural alcohol, or other compounds containing a furan ring, or by the reaction of these furan compounds with other compounds (not over 50%). Fire-retardant furans are used in hand lay-up, spray-up, and filament winding operations. Furans are commonly used in foundry binders, grinding wheels, refractories, and other high-temperature applications. Furan resins and chemicals are also used in fiberglass composites, hybrid resins combined with epoxy or phenolics, and in corrosion-resistant cements. 
   Polyester / Vinyl Ester       Thermosetting resins or plastics are based on the polyester (alkyd) or vinyl ester system. These materials should not be confused with thermoplastic polyesters or PET resins. 
   Polypropylene (PP)       Polypropylene (PP) is commonly used in hot-melt adhesive systems. PP is a polymer based on polypropylene chemical bonds. 
   Polysulfide       Polymer resins or compounds are based on polysulfide or polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) chemical systems.  
   Polyurethane (PU, PUR)       Polyurethane (PUR) resins provide excellent flexibility, impact resistance, and durability. Polyurethanes are formed through the reaction of an isocyanate component with polyols or other active hydroxyl group compounds. PUR resins require a catalyst, heat, or air evaporation to initiate and complete curing.  
   Silicone       Plastic compounds, elastomer resins, or polymers are based on the silicone chemical system. Silicones are produced through the hydrolysis and polymerization of silanes and siloxanes. 
   Specialty / Other       Other specialty, proprietary or unlisted resins, chemical systems or compound or polymer types. 
   Acrylic / Polyacrylate       Acrylics feature excellent environmental resistance and fast-setting times. Acrylic polymers are produced from acrylic acids via a catalytic reaction.

   Solvent Based (Volatile Organic)?       Solvent-based adhesive resins use a volatile organic solvent (VOC) to thin or alter viscosity. Typically, solvent-based adhesive resins result in greater environmental or regulatory control problems. Solvents can also present a fire hazard or a risk of explosion, depending on the plant or job site.
