Product Description

LOCTITE ABLESTIK ABP 8420 non-conductive epoxy adhesive is designed for cap and lid attach applications in wirebond packages for optical sensors and 3d modules. This adhesive can be fast cured using directed heat energy or hot plate curing techniques. It is jettable, with minimal resin bleed out and has minimal adhesion drop post reliability

LOCTITE ABLESTIK ABP 8420 will cure at temperatures as low as 80ºC in conventional box or convection conveyor oven curing. If used over an active die face, an adhesive bondline thickness of >1 mil must be maintained to prevent die scarring.

Technical Specifications

General Properties
Curing Schedule
Curing Schedule
Curing schedule is the time and temperature required for a mixed material to fully cure. While this applies to materials that cure with heat, there are also other materials that can be cured with UV.

Even though some materials can cure on ambient temperatures, others will require elevated temperature conditions to properly cure.

There are various curing schedules depending on the material type and application. For heat curing, the most common ones are Snap cure, Low temperature cure, Step cure and Staged cure.

Recommended cure type, schedule, time and temperature can always be found on the Technical data sheets.
Curing Heat Cure
Work life @25°C
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.

Mechanical Properties
Viscosity
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
water would.

The viscosity of a material can be decreased with an increase in temperature in
order to better suit an application
Viscosity 13,500 mPa.s
Thixotropic index
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.

Tensile Modulus
Tensile Modulus
Tensile modulus is a mechanical property that measures the stiffness of an elastic material. It is the slope of stress / strain curve of a material under direct tensile loading.

It can be used to predict the elongation or elastic deformation of an object as long as the stress is less than the tensile strength of the material. Elastic deformation is caused by stretching the bonds between atoms and the deformation can be reversed when the load is removed.

Tensile modulus is affected by temperature and is an important engineering attribute since we generally want to keep elastic deformation as small as possible.
Tensile Modulus @25°C 2,850 N/mm2
Tensile Modulus @100°C 1,919 N/mm2
Tensile Modulus @150°C 90 N/mm2
Tensile Modulus @250°C 84 N/mm2
Thermal Properties
Glass Transition Temperature (Tg)
Glass Transition Temperature (Tg)
The glass transition temperature for organic adhesives is a temperature region where the polymers change from glassy and brittle to soft and rubbery. Increasing the temperature further continues the softening process as the viscosity drops too. Temperatures between the glass transition temperature and below the decomposition point of the adhesive are the best region for bonding.

The glass-transition temperature Tg of a material characterizes the range of temperatures over which this glass transition occurs.
75 °C
Thermal Conductivity
Thermal Conductivity
Thermal conductivity describes the ability of a material to conduct heat. It is required by power packages in order to dissipate heat and maintain stable electrical performance.

Thermal conductivity units are [W/(m K)] in the SI system and [Btu/(hr ft °F)] in the Imperial system.
0.3 W/m.K
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
CTE (Coefficient of thermal expansion) is a material property that is indicative of the extent to which a material expands with a change in temperature. This can be a change in length, area or volume, depending on the material.

Knowing the CTE of the layers is helpful in analyzing stresses that might occur when a
system consists of an adhesive plus some other solid component.
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), α1
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), α1
CTE α1 (alpha 1) is the slope of the Coefficient of thermal expansion in a temperature range below the Glass transition temperature (Tg).

It explains how much a material will expand until it reaches Tg.
54 ppm/°C
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), α2
Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), α2
CTE α2 (alpha 2) is the slope of the Coefficient of thermal expansion in a temperature range above the Glass transition temperature (Tg).

It explains the extent to which a material will expand after it passes Tg.
154 ppm/°C
