LOCTITE ABLESTIK ICP 4001
- Low outgassing
- Low stress interconnects
- Noble components on noble LF
LOCTITE® ABLESTIK ICP 4001 Ag filled, silicone-based, one component, electrically conductive adhesive is recommended for use in attaching devices or mount components in circuit assembly applications. It is specifically designed to provide reliable low stress interconnects exposed to prolonged vibrational energy and high operating temperatures.
LOCTITE® ABLESTIK ICP 4001 has been optimised to maintain its flexibility and survive at operating temperatures as high as 200ºC. it has low outgassing and low bleeding during cure. Compared to ICP 4000 it has better adhesion but slightly worse electrical performance.
LOCTITE® ABLESTIK ICP 4001 common applications include and are not limited to:
- Bonding of noble passive components onto noble terminated lead frames for electronic sensors
- Back contact bonding of c-Si PV cells to conductive Ag tracks
- 35 minutes @ 140°C

Volumetric mass per unit
| 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
| Elongation |
Elongation is the process of lengthening something.
It is a percentage that measures the initial, unstressed, length compared to the length of the material right before it breaks.
It is commonly referred to as Ultimate Elongation or Tensile Elongation at break.
| Volume Resistivity |
Volume resistivity, also called volume resistance, bulk resistance or bulk resistivity is a thickness dependent measurement of the resistivity of a material perpendicular to the plane of the surface.
| 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.
