Tireless Reliability for Appliances
Today’s major household appliances may incorporate as many as six or seven printed circuit boards, serving purposes from managing the user interface to controlling motor speed to ensuring safe and reliable operation.
Dow's portfolio of proven silicone solutions offers broad design and manufacturing flexibility for your appliances. As a leader in PCB Systems protection for over 70 years, we bring industry expertise and a collaborative approach that can help you simplify the processing and assembly of your products, and ensure they operate reliably over their expected lifetime.
Dow Consumer Solutions silicones resist moisture and chemicals, and offer better thermal stability versus epoxies or urethanes, helping to insulate against high temperatures. Their flexibility helps protect large components – such as capacitors – against vibration, as well as delicate components – such as leads – from strain caused by thermal cycling.
Thermally conductive adhesives, compounds, and dispensable pads from Dow Consumer Solutions can help further address design goals targeting heat dissipation in power transistor or compressor components, and help bring even greater reliability to your appliance design.
Most of our silicone solutions offer a simple room temperature cure that can be accelerated by heat for greater productivity. Importantly, many are VOC compliant, which further simplifies processing operations as well as end-of-life disposal.
