The automotive, communication infrastructure, and consumer electronics components industry require higher processing power for increased reliability To satisfy these requirements, high reliability solder alloys, along with protective and reinforcement polymers the life of electronic components.


Delivering next-generation technologies

To address these rapidly growing reliability demands of complex circuit board assemblies, MacDermid Alpha is excited to introduce new technologies to the market.

Innolot ®MXE, a next-generation high reliability alloy engineered to redefine thermomechanical performance. This new alloy offers unmatched improvements in thermal cycling, electrochemical reliability, vibration, and drop shock performance, extending system life in the harshest of environments.

Electrolube® 2K301P, a two-component conformal coating, is designed to provide optimal protection in harsh operating conditions by offering increased coating thickness, enhanced edge coverage, and excellent flexibility with reduced component stress. While providing robust protection, 2K301P also offers an innovative lightweight solution, achieving durability akin to resins for enhanced overall performance. Notably, 2K301P features a solvent, VOC, and silicone-free formulation, reducing environmental impact while ensuring compatibility with a wide range of materials.

As electronics become increasingly complex and generate more heat, the need to regulate temperatures is critical to extend the system life of components. To that end, MacDermid Alpha is significantly expanding its Thermal Interface Materials product line to address the growing demand. This expansion includes a comprehensive range of thermally conductive gap filling, pads, one-part thermal gels, and thin dielectric sheets, aimed at further advancing our integrated solutions offering.
