MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, the leading global supplier of integrated circuit, assembly and
semiconductor solutions for the electronics design and manufacturing industries, will be highlighting their
unrivalled capabilities as a total process solutions provider at this year’s Productronica South China,
which takes place at the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center, 15-17 November 2022, on
the MacDermid Alpha Stand E17 in Hall 11.
MacDermid Alpha encompasses a full spectrum of industry leading innovative technologies from Alpha,
Compugraphics, Electrolube, Kester and MacDermid Enthone brands, giving manufacturers a distinct
advantage in sourcing all their application-specific needs in one place. MacDermid Alpha has been taking
a proactive response where innovation is concerned and identifying key areas in the market, rather than
a passive reactive approach. Essentially, MacDermid Alpha, supplies solutions across all aspects of the
assembly process from PCB manufacturing, PCB assembly and even reclaim and recycling services.
MacDermid Alpha will showcase its’ latest new low temperature solder material. Designed to
mitigate warpage induced defects in temperature sensitive chip-scale packages, the ALPHA OM-565 HRL3
solder paste enhances electrochemical performance over existing low temperature solders and provides
excellent compatibility when used in combination with other ALPHA solutions for contact rework applications. ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 enables superior wettability to minimize post reflow defects such as
Non-Wet-Open (NWO) and Head-in-Pillow (HIP). Next generation devices require a larger footprint and
thinner form factor design that deliver superior processing power over existing technologies. These next
generation packages create challenges for assembly at traditional SMT reflow temperatures. ALPHA OM-
565 HRL3 enables a reduction in peak reflow down to 175 °C to mitigate common warpage induced
defects such as HiP and NWO to improve assembly yields.
Electrolube,the most recent addition to the MacDermid Alpha family of brands is a specialist
manufacturer for the electro-chemicals industry. The brand has amassed a wealth of local knowledge and
experience pertaining to China’s domestic market since opening facilities in China twenty years ago. The
acquisition has proven successful for both MacDermid Alpha and Electrolube, the latter benefitting from
an expansion of their Chinese Technical Support team. The brand has also recently launched a new
generation of bio-based conformal coatings and encapsulation resins. Electrolube’s new bio-based
products build upon their already strong portfolio of solutions. Not only do these new products offer
environmental benefits but they also provide high performance protection and increase reliability.
Featured at the show will be a new bio-based polyurethane resins, UR5645, is a tough, two-part
encapsulation system ideal for a wide range of applications including automotive and marine. UR5645 is a
highly versatile resin with an operating temperature range of -50 to +150 o C and is a low viscosity resin
that enables a faster and more efficient potting process. It also provides excellent chemical resistance to
acids, alkalis and fuels, ideally suited for the harshest conditions, such as those found in automotive
Electrolube additionally offer a wide range of conformal coatings and thermal management materials.
UVCL is a low viscosity coating with the capacity to cure within seconds of exposure to the correct dosage
of UV light. UVCL is one of Electrolube’s next generation of VOC-free coatings, and the product’s low
viscosity ensures that it is eminently suitable for selective spray equipment. The secondary moisture cure
ensures even shadowed areas can be cured successfully.
Electrolube’s GF400 is an extremely versatile gap filling material, suitable for a wide variety of
applications, including e-vehicles and chargers. This two-part silicone-based filling material cures at room
temperature but the cure can also be accelerated by heat. An impressive thermal conductivity of 4.0
W/m.K is a feature of this gap filler and following cure, a low modulus elastomer avoids pump out
MacDermid Alpha’s vast interconnection of specialty electronics solutions ensures that manufacturers
can access all areas of the electronics supply chain in one place. Visitors to Productronica South China are
