MacDermid Alpha, DuPont Teijin Films and Sheldahl Enter Into Strategic Relationship


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, DuPont Teijin Films, the world’s leading differentiated producer of Mylar and Melinex branded PET and PEN polyester films,  and Sheldahl Flexible Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Flex Ltd. that has been delivering reliable, materials, flexible and printed electronics, have entered into a strategic relationship to offer low temperature, PET-based flexible printed circuit assemblies.

This collaboration will enable a complete and holistic solution, starting from world class polyester films, to state-of-the art FPC fabrication and low temperature soldering assembly.

This radical technology has the potential for three key inflection points:

  • Transition from traditional polyimide-based (PI) flex circuits to water clear, transparent, state-of-the-art Polyester-based (PET) flex circuits,
  • Fabrication of sophisticated circuitry via use of surface mount technology (SMT), and
  • Ability to attach heat sensitive components, such as displays, batteries, connectors, etc., using standard in-line SMT assembly techniques.

Key benefits to our Customers include:

  • Leading edge products, technical expertise and applications support
  • Global supply chain for implementing this technology
  • End-to-end solution for creating next generation products

This win-win solution of ultra-low temperature processing, for mutual customers, will enable smart, thin, lightweight electronics of tomorrow.

The IPC Education Foundation (IPCEF) hosted its STEM Student Outreach Event on February 6 at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. Nine local high schools attended bringing 193 students and 30 educators from Mission Hills High School, Morse High School, North County Trade Tech High School, Saint Marcos High School, E3 Civic High School, Point Loma High School, Otay Ranch High School, Mount Miguel High School, Otay Ranch High School—Girls in STEM. Twice as many students were able to participate this year, and each participating high school received a $1,000 grant and soldering station to enhance STEM-related learning at their school.

IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Katie Carl

02/20/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
"We have a wide range of kids. All of them have some sort of interest in technology, which is why they wanted to come in general," said Katie Carl, a high school teacher escorting a group of kids at IPC APEX EXPO. "It’s neat when they start seeing how these technologies are created because a lot of them have seen robotics or have done a tiny bit of soldering with little circuits, but when they can see how those things are built and created in the industry, it makes it more applicable for them."
