Innovative flexible silicone adhesive for foldable electronic displays
Foldable and rollable electronic displays are expanding our concept of consumer electronics, such as smart phones and tablets. This technology requires materials that not only enable elasticity required for folding or rolling flexible displays but materials that also maintain stable mechanical properties after folding, materials like DOWSIL™ VE-8001 Flexible Silicone Adhesive.
This two-part primerless silicone adhesive is applied directly to thin metal surfaces and forms an elastic layer, or inner hinge, that helps to protect the display from damage caused by folding and unfolding. DOWSIL™ VE-8001 Flexible Silicone Adhesive is easy to apply, features low temperature curing for reduced energy costs and provides durable mechanical properties. Its tensile strength and elongation also support designs with a small folding radius.
Key Benefits of DOWSIL™ VE-8001 Flexible Silicone Adhesive
- Stable mechanical properties after dynamic and static folding test
- Appropriate tensile strength and elongation for small folding radius
- Low temperature cure (80oC for 60 minutes at 300 um thickness)
- Long working time at room temperature (12 hours)
