  • Publication number: 20140295182
    Abstract: Provided is a PSA tape for an electrochemical device, which can be peeled off rapidly and will not damage adherend materials or the PSA tape itself, or will not leave adhesive residues, when an adhesion defectiveness occurs during the manufacturing and processing of an electrochemical device, especially an electrolytic capacitor or a battery. The PSA tape comprises a substrate and a PSA layer placed on at least one face of the substrate. In the PSA tape, an anchoring strength of the PSA layer to the substrate is 7.0 N/10 mm or more.

  • Publication number: 20140287299
    Abstract: A heat-debonding adhesive member is provided. The heat-debonding adhesive member attaches electronic device components such as a battery and a housing together. The heat-debonding adhesive includes a heat-generating layer that generates heat for debonding structures that are attached together using the adhesive member. The heat-generating layer includes a conductive layer that generates heat when a current flows through the conductive layer. The heat-debonding adhesive includes additional adhesive layers such as a voided polymer film having air-filled voids and one or more pressure-sensitive adhesive layers. A debonding tool provides current to conductive contacts on the conductive layer for generating heat in the heat-generating layer when it is desired to debond the structures that are attached together using the adhesive member.

  • Publication number: 20140272321
    Abstract: A masking material and method of forming a masking tape that includes a substrate and an adhesive layer disposed on the substrate. The adhesive layer is preferably thicker than the substrate and formed of a material that has a modulus of elasticity combined with a viscoelastic component that allows the adhesive to conform to discontinuities associated with a surface to which the masking material is applied. Preferably, the adhesive is formed in two rows that are aligned with the lateral edges of the substrate and which prevent seepage of liquid materials between the masking material and the surface to which it is applied.

  • Publication number: 20140272401
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an adhesive film for protecting a wafer including an adhesive layer formed on one surface of a substrate film. The present invention relates to an adhesive film for protecting the surface of a semiconductor wafer, wherein the surface film has a tensile strength of 2-10 kg/mm2 and an elongation until breakage of 50-200%, and the gel content of the adhesive layer is greater than or equal to 80%. The adhesive film for protecting the wafer maintains cutting ability and machinability, while preventing the generation of bending and wafer breaking phenomena due to the decrease of the wafer thickness. In addition, the adhesive film may not melt at high temperatures, and the yield while grinding the wafer may be increased.
