What thermally conductive glues are available to glue Luxeon Lumiled parts down?

Are single part glues without an activator available, suitable for screen printing or dispensing?

Many thanks

Thermally conductive epoxies are rarely used to hold components in-place. They are more likely used as fillers between two surfaces.

Yes, single part glues without an activator are available that are suitable for screen printing or dispensing.

Some thermally conductive epoxy suppliers are: * Epoxytech http://www.epoxytech.com

* Epoxies Inc. (http://www.epoxies.com/) * Ablestik (subsidiary of National Starch and Chemical Company) http://www.ablestik.com

* Epotek http://www.epotek.com

* DuPont http://www1.dupont.com/NASApp/dupontglobal/corp/products/products.jsp?nodeID=305&submit=Go

* Methode Electronics http://www.methode.com

That's great - thanks for the advice on the epoxy's.

Can anyone provide any info on the single part thermally conductive adhesives or fillers that do not require an activator?

Mant thanks.

Hi Charlie,

In case you're processing large quantities of lumileds you may want to have a look at the Assembleon FS machine. It is an FCM machine of only half the length with some dedicated robots on it. In stead of all Pick&Place robots it 2 dispense units, then 2 P&P units and then 2 hot-iron soldering units, so you get the full process in one machine. This link should take you straight to the FS-machine: http://www.assembleon.com/InformationCenter/Assembleon/FTabOverview.asp?lNodeId=2784&lActiveTabArticleId=3753

Hello Charlie,

For Application of thermal conductive glue by dispensing, Luxeon recommends Amicon E3503 from Emerson and Cuming (www.emersoncuming.com) for its standard Luxeon Power Light Sources. For optimal thermal connection it is important that the total slug area is wetted with adhesive after the emitter is placed on the MCPCB.

Also, a selection of available solder flux pastes to include: -Metals 390DH4 -Metals LR735 -Metals NS4029 -ESP 6-412 -Cobar 380SR-flux gel

The alternative for automated assembly of Lumileds, different for Assembleon�s FS-machine which Base has mentioned is HBSM. You could find more information on: http://www.ivastech.com/perl/ivastech/page.pl?url=it_hbsm.htm

Good luck

Iva
