Abstract: Molding compositions particularly useful in coating electronic devices such as integrated circuits are disclosed. The molding compositions include an epoxy resin; a hardener for the epoxy resin, a flame retardant compound such as melamine cyanurate, and a quaternary organophosphonium salt for catalyzing a reaction between the epoxy resin and the hardener, such as ethyl triphenyl phosphonium acid acetate. The molding compositions exhibit improved flame retardancy. Also, when multifunctional epoxy resins and multifunctional phenolic hardeners such as those derived from phenol with a degree of branching of at least three are used, the molding compounds including the quaternary organophosphonium salt as a catalyst exhibit long flow and low shrinkage and warpage.

Abstract: The present invention relates to b-stageable die attach adhesives, methods of preparing such adhesives, methods of applying such adhesives to the die and other substrate surfaces, and assemblies prepared therewith for connecting microelectronic circuitry.
Abstract: In accordance with the present invention, it has been discovered that the addition of organic acids provides improved performance properties to curable compositions, e.g., improved flux compatibility, improved flow properties, improved voiding properties, and the like. Accordingly, there are provided curable compositions having improved performance properties, methods for the preparation thereof, and methods employing same. Also provided are novel articles prepared using invention compositions.
Abstract: In accordance with the present invention, there are provided novel heterobifunctional monomers and users for the same. Invention compounds have many of the properties required by the microelectronics industry, such as, for example, hydrophobicity, high Tg values, low dielectric constant, ionic purity, low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), and the like. These properties result in a thermoset that is particularly well suited to high performance applications where typical operating temperatures are often significantly higher than those at which prior art materials were suitable. Invention compounds are particularly ideal for use in the manufacture of electronic components, such as, for example, printed circuit boards, and the like.

Abstract: This invention relates to (meth)acrylate based polymerizable compositions and adhesive systems prepared therefrom, which include an initiator system comprising a complex of an organoborane with a complexing agent, an aziridine-containing compound, and a carrier material with which the initiator system is unreactive and which renders the composition having a flash point above 140° F. The inventive compositions desirably have a flash point above 200° F., for each of the parts of the adhesive system. To achieve the physical properties of the inventive compositions and adhesive systems, it is desirable for the carrier material to have such flash points; however, provided that in their entirety the inventive compositions and adhesive systems have such flash points, it is not necessary for the carrier material itself to have such flash points. The inventive compositions and adhesive systems also include a package for controlling the rate of cure and indicating the extent of cure.
Abstract: The present invention provides a new class of materials effective as accelerators for curing anaerobic adhesives. The addition of these materials into anaerobic adhesives as a replacement for conventional curatives, such as APH and/or toluidines, surprisingly provides at higher cure speeds and comparable physical properties for the reaction products formed therefrom.
Abstract: This invention relates to a visible light or UV/visible light and anaerobically curable composition for encapsulating the surface of the primer mix disposed in the primer cup, particularly for use in center fire ammunition.
Abstract: A molding compound is provided for use in encapsulating electronic packages which include an optoelectronic component, such as an LED. The molding compound includes a partially cured epoxy composition, an antioxidant, and, optionally, a phosphor material substantially uniformly distributed throughout the epoxy composition. The optional phosphor material may be suspended within the epoxy composition by pre-reacting a portion of the epoxy composition prior to B-staging of the molding compound. As such, the optional phosphor material is suspended within the epoxy composition, thereby preventing settling of the phosphor material during B-staging, as well as during curing of the molding compound in the encapsulation process.
Abstract: This invention relates to latent foamable compositions for use in or as adhesives, sealants and/or coatings.
