  • Patent number: 8400253
    Abstract: Disclosed are a thermal fuse resistor having a case injection-molded by using thermosetting resin having heat resistance less than that of a filler, a manufacturing method of the thermal fuse resistor, and a method of installing the thermal fuse resistor such that a resistor and a thermal fuse are laid down on a printed circuit board. In the thermal fuse resistor, through changing a material of the case, the case has a lighter weight and is not easily broken, so that the thermal fuse resistor is advantageously used for an electronic appliance because of its lightness and slimness. The thickness of the case of the thermal fuse resistor serves as the thickness of the electronic appliance employing the thermal fuse resistor, so that the thermal fuse resistor allows the electronic appliance to have a slim structure.
