Why use silicone resin for PSA?

From the market situation in recent years, the demand for pressure-sensitive adhesives has been maintaining rapid growth, especially with the rapid development of high-performance special-purpose pressure-sensitive adhesives, production and sales continue to rise sharply, and globally become the highest sales of pressure-sensitive adhesive varieties. With the continuous improvement of performance, it is predicted that the growth of this type of pressure-sensitive adhesive will continue to be the fastest. The traditional pressure-sensitive adhesives for packaging tapes are growing slowly and becoming less profitable as the market has matured and is nearing saturation. Why use silicone resins for PSA?

High-performance silicone pressure-sensitive adhesives are composed of elastic and flexible silicone rubber and silicone resin. Because the silicone-oxygen-silicone bond is more stable than the carbon-carbon and carbon-oxygen bonds in other organic pressure-sensitive adhesives, silicone pressure-sensitive adhesives have high resistance to humidity, chemicals, temperature, and excellent dielectric properties. Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive is the highest temperature resistance of all pressure-sensitive adhesives. Its use of the temperature range is also the widest of all the repulsive adhesives, for 75-260., and its short-term use of the temperature can even reach 300..

The following four aspects of the silicone resin in the application of pressure-sensitive adhesive:

1. What is the role of silicone resin?

(1) Excellent heat-resistant properties:

In early processes of preparation of silicone resins sodium silicate and various chlorosilanes were used as starting materials. It has a low dissolution index, can resist temperatures up to 450 , and will not therefore produce secondary volatiles, can be used as a high-temperature adhesive, material coatings, and encapsulation material;

(2) Good water resistance:

Compared with organic resins, silicone resin has good water resistance, can prevent the penetration of silane and dispersant to the air, and can effectively block water; (3) good water resistance: silicone resin has good water resistance, can prevent the penetration of silane and dispersant to the air, can effectively block water.

(3) Good chemical resistance:

Silicone resin can react with acids, alkalis, salts, and other organic substances, which can prevent them from destroying its surface

(4) Antioxidant properties:

Due to the good antioxidant properties of silicone resin, can effectively prevent the heat generated by the combustion of the surface damage to the object

(5) Friction resistance:

Silicone resin has good friction properties, can effectively avoid unnecessary friction, and can prevent wear and tear.

2. What are the advantages of silicone PSA?

Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive is mainly used in the production of electrical and electronic adhesive tape and other uses that require temperature resistance.

(1) Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive tape can withstand changes in cold and heat cycles, which is incomparable to other pressure-sensitive adhesives. In addition, it can also bond a variety of difficult-to-stick materials such as unsurfaced polyolefins, fluoroplastics, polyimide polycarbonate, and so on.

(2) However, although the main chain of silicone molecules Si-0 bond polarity, because of the geometric configuration of the molecular skeleton is helical, the dipole moments offset each other to eliminate the polarity of the bond, and thus the low polarity of silicone, resulting in poor adhesion properties, low cohesion strength, and so on. We have chemically modified its main raw materials, the introduction of new groups, increased the initial adhesion, improved the cohesive strength, and ultimately produced high-performance pressure-sensitive adhesive.

3. What is the application of silicone PSA?

With the development of industry, more and more industrial applications require more high-performance pressure-sensitive adhesive and high-performance pressure-sensitive adhesive, and its products are electronic industry, automotive industry, aerospace industry production lines important auxiliary materials. Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive has a high resistance to moisture, chemical resistance, temperature resistance, and excellent dielectric properties, to meet the increasingly wide range of applications.

Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive application areas are divided into the following key aspects of the introduction.

3.1 Electrical insulation tape

Silicone pressure adhesive has excellent electrical insulation properties and heat resistance and can be used as an H-class insulation material, with which to make polyimide, glass cloth, mica PTFE, and other substrates of electrical insulation tape.

(1) Bundle transformer:

In the transformer core wire and the insulation of the interlayer, the tape tightly adheres to the flange, comprehensive bundle transformer, when the line is used at high temperatures, the tape protects the end of the winding from vibration and protects the outer structure of the winding.

(2) Fixing electronic components:

Surface mount technology (SMT) is the technique of placing small electrical components on a printed circuit board. Adhesive tape and carrier adhesive tape to seal the sheet-like electronic components, the requirements of the adhesive heat aging resistance are good, coated with glue are; adhesive adhesion on the substrate in order to prevent the adhesive tape in contact with the guide rollers, the guide rollers left on the residual adhesive; have good adhesive properties, to ensure that the electronic components are firmly adhered to the adhesive tape. Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive has high-temperature resistance, high adhesion, and no residual adhesive these properties can meet the requirements of its use.

(3) the application of the automobile industry: the wiring harnesses used in automobiles are almost all wrapped with electrical tape, on the one hand, to improve the insulation of the wiring harness; on the other hand, to prevent friction between the wiring harness and other parts of the car, as well as external substances on the corrosion of the wiring harness to improve the safety of the automobile operation.

3.2 Masking tape

In the printed circuit board plating, hot air leveling and wave soldering before the part that does not require plating or tin spraying with masking tape to protect up, this time the tape is required for the edge of the concave and convex part of the tight adhesion to prevent plating solution or tin penetration into the board, the tape's heat resistance, acid and alkali resistance, water resistance and chemical resistance and non-polluting printed substrate is essential.

3.3 Specialized tape for LED encapsulation

LED encapsulation process is the most critical process - injection, is a certain concentration of liquid epoxy resin glued into the mold shell and high-temperature curing process, it directly affects the quality of the finished product LED. Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive tape used in the LED display encapsulation epoxy resin, not only protects the LED in the operation of the smooth, but at the same time can make the display panel high temperature curing to achieve the effect of flat, and in the removal of the tape, there will be no residual adhesive situation occurs, to ensure the quality of LED.

3.4 Electrical Components Production

Electronic components such as capacitors, resistors, etc., due to the number of large, and small sizes, so an advanced production process should be used for pressure-sensitive adhesive tape, through mechanical equipment will be positioned after the component tape and carried out. To capitalize on capacitors, for example, silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive tape in the production of capacitors epoxy impregnation, high-temperature curing, printing in the row of stickers to fix the role of protection of capacitors, it requires the use of pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, must be able to quickly fix the lead at room temperature, through the high-temperature operation does not shift, does not fall off, in order to carry out the performance test, etc. At the same time, if the capacitor is unloaded from the tape, the lead can not be left on the glue, so as not to affect the future 147 solder fastness. These heat-resistant properties, on the one hand, require glue in the positioning, braiding tape polymer chain segments easier to move, and can quickly wet the sticky material, on the other hand, requires glue in the high-temperature region when the polymer inter-chain force is strong, not easy to move to resist the high temperature caused by the heat of the polymer movement, to prevent the decline of the adhesion, therefore, high-performance pressure-sensitive adhesive in the production process of the assembly line is important.

3.5 Other

In addition, silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive tape can also be used in spacecraft high-temperature adhesive tape products, automobile manufacturing, shipbuilding, electrical insulation of generators and motors, an electronic combination of photolithography mask, flame and plasma spraying masking, electromagnetic interference, radio frequency interference shielding, chemical etching processing of the mask, gas shielding and chemical shielding, as well as ultra-high-temperature baking paint and powder coating and so on. Conclusion We use inexpensive water glass to prepare silicone resin, which greatly reduces the cost of raw materials and is suitable for industrial production. The time and proportion of hexamethyl disiloxane addition were controlled to prepare M Q silicone resin with a uniform molecular distribution. Through the introduction of phenyl, vinyl silicone resin to improve the system's temperature resistance, peel strength, and adhesion to the substrate.
