Glossary of Product Properties and Test Parameters

This glossary contains descriptions of key material properties, so that the user can better understand the products capabilities and limitations.

It is important to note that not all products are necessarily tested agains the same conditons, as they are not all necessarily relevant to either the product or the application

Group NameDescription
Application Example
Application MethodChecking one of these application methods will filter by products that can be used for this application
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
Competitive Brand Names
Competitive Companies
Competitive Cross ReferenceThis products is equivalent to the competitive products listed. These are cross references to competitors' equivalent products.
Curing Schedule
Curing Time
Die Shear StrengthDie Shear Strength is the force that has to be applied to the side of the semiconductor die before it shears from its mounting. Shear strength is measured for various die sizes, substrates and operating temperatures so check the Technical data sheet for your intended usage.
Dielectric ConstantDielectric Constant (k) is a number relating the ability of a material to carry alternating current to the ability of vacuum to carry alternating current.
Dissipation Factor
Extractable Ionic Content, after 20 hours
FlashMold Flash, as measured in millimeters in diverse thickness channels
Flexural Modulus
Flexural Strength
Flow rateThe time it takes for the underfill to travel through a gap and onto a glass surface. Most results are for 1cm distance but always check the TDS for additional information.
Gel Time
Glass Plate Flow
HardnessHardness is a dimensionless quantity. There is no direct relationship between measurements in one scale and their equivalent in another scale or another hardness test.

ViscosityViscosity is a measurement of a fluid’s resistance to flow. Viscosity is commonly measured in centiPoise (cP). One cP is defined as the viscosity of water and all other viscosities are derived from this base. MPa is another common unit with a 1:1 conversion to cP. A product like honey would have a much higher viscosity -around 10,000 cPs- compared to water. As a result, honey would flow much slower out of a tipped glass than water would. The viscosity of a material can be decreased with an increase in temperature in order to better suit an application
