High performance resins for a range of applications

Addison Clear Wave provides epoxy- and acrylate-based heat- and UV-curable adhesives and sealants with a wide range of properties for diverse applications in the optics, optoelectronics, flat panel display, semiconductor and consumer electronics industries. ACW adhesives, sealants and coatings are used for encapsulation of CMOS and electronic components, optoelectronics and die attach integrated circuit packaging, flat panel display sealing, CCD lens bonding, camera module assembly, plastic and glass hard coating and lamination, optical fiber cladding and coating, and many other demanding applications.

Unique properties of ACW’s adhesives and sealants include dual-cure resins that cure with either UV radiation or heat for applications with shaded areas, high Tg UV curable sealants for semiconductor or component packaging, UV-Snap Cure adhesives that are stable at room temperature but cure at temperatures as low as 60-70 °C after UV activation, high refractive index resins for Wafer-Level-Optic lens fabrication in mobile phone and display applications, low refractive index adhesives and materials for cladding and optoelectronics applications, UV photopolymer (2P) resins for nano or micro imprinting with either metal or plastic masters, thermally conductive adhesives, and flame-retardant optical fiber coatings.

Addison Clear Wave features custom design of resins for specific needs. Our R&D group works closely with customers to develop new products rapidly. Contact us if you would like to fine tune one of our products for a new application or if you are in the design stage of your new product.
