- Gold Filled
- High electrical conductivity
- Works on Noble finished substrates
LOCTITE ABLESTIK 8370 adhesive is designed for automatic dispensing operations, where silver migration is a concern.
LOCTITE ABLESTIK 8370 is a dispensable gold filled adhesive than can replace Silver filled alternatives when migration is not acceptable at all. It is compatible with Noble substrate finishes and should not be used in Sn terminations. Even though Silver migration is unlikely to happen in ovemolded packages, there are certain applications that can be susceptible to it such as Automotive LED and that is where this high cost and high performance product shines.

Work life @25°C
Work life is the amount of time we have to work with a material until it is no longer able to be easily worked and applied on a substrate.
It is based on the change in viscosity and it can rely on the application requirements.
| Thixotropic index |
Thixotropic Index is a ratio of a material s viscosity at two different speeds in Ambient temperature, generally different by a factor of ten.
A thixotropic material s viscosity will decrease as agitation or pressure is increased. It indicates the capability of a material to hold its shape. Mayonnaise is a great example of this. It holds its shape very well, but when a shear stress is applied, the material easily spreads.
It helps in choosing a material in accordance to the application, dispense method and viscosity of a material.
| Viscosity |
Viscosity 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
The viscosity of a material can be decreased with an increase in temperature in
order to better suit an application
