RFID Applications

New adhesive for RFID applications Windach, June 25, 2012: the Global RFID market is on the rise. IDTechEx forecasts an increase from 2.4 to 125 billion RFID tags in the year 2020 * is the low-cost production in the focus for manufacturers of RFID labels. At the same time, the transponder chip must be attached reliably. The new epoxy resin adhesive DELOMONOPOX AC268 takes account of these requirements: it enables fastest production processes for maximum reliability. The Anisotropic Conductive Adhesive was developed for RFID applications. Its use is possible as well as for other electronic packaging applications.

Our adhesive has an improved moisture resistance”so Jens Amarell, product manager RFID at DELO industrial adhesives. It is ideal for applications where it’s reliability, such as Metro tickets, passports or plagiarism protection for high-quality products.” DELOMONOPOX AC268 is in chip-attach processes, in particular in flip-chip applications used. On the RFID antenna, he glued the part only 400 m of small chips reliably and at a defined position. Storage tests by 1000 h at 85 C / 85% R.f.. DELO showed consistently good electrical contacting customer substrates.

Fast production processes are made possible due to the short curing time using Thermode six seconds at 190 C. Thus, up to 20,000 chips per hour can be glued on a flip-chip plant. The adhesive provides good adhesion to a variety of flexible and rigid substrates such as such as PET, polyimide, FR4, copper, aluminum and silver. Extensively tested was the DELOMONOPOX AC268 in the DELO engineering laboratories: these include including temperature shock tests, bending tests, and the storage in the Cabinet. DELO offers a comprehensive support of the concept its customers with its laboratory equipment and Know-How as the world market leader for smart label adhesives to series production.
