This specification covers an electrically-conductive adhesive supplied as two components, a silverfilled, epoxy-base adhesive and a separate curing agent which may be paste or liquid.
This adhesive has been used typically for providing an electrically-conductive bond between surfaces and as an electrically-conductive sealing compound, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Caution is required in using this adhesive in applications where high humidity prevails or in the presence of moisture; under these conditions, the silver particles in this adhesive can produce corrosion cells in contact with other metals which are lower in the electromotive series. Silver migration or whisker growth may also occur between points of unequal electrical potential.
Safety - Hazardous Materials:
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
