Silicones for Automotive Electronics

Countless electronic devices are used in automobiles. To achieve the goal of reducing CO2, the transition from internal combustion engine vehicles to EVs is expected to proceed gradually. KCC SILICONE provides Momentive's excellent EV silicone solutions.

As the miniaturization and integration of electronic components progresses, the operating temperature and heat output increase. A heat dissipation solution is required for the life and performance of these components.

Electronic devices are also applied to various parts of vehicles with internal combustion engines. KCC SILICONE develops and sells various silicone products such as coatings and adhesives that are required to assemble PCBs for automotive electronic components. As for coating agents, the company provides low-viscosity and low-hardness or high-hardness conformal coating materials that achieve high workability. As environmental regulations in manufacturing facilities have tightened in recent years, the company is supplying solvent-free conformal coatings that can respond to increased environmental regulations.

LSR for Airbag Coating
Automotive airbags are usually manufactured by coating LSR on textile fabrics such as nylon and polyester. Airbag coated with LSR improves its durability and protects the human body by maintaining air pressure for a certain period of time when inflated. To achieve this performance, LSR for airbag coating is designed to have excellent adhesion to fabrics, and also possesses flame retardancy and high tear properties.

LSR/HCE Connector Seal
Typical automotive parts include connector seals, O-rings, and gaskets. These parts are manufactured using oil bleeding LSR/HCE. Oil bleeding LSR/HCE provides water and airtightness between socket and plug of electronic equipment by draining silicone oil over time after molding. In addition, they improve assemblability by reducing friction during module manufacturing. In line with ever lighter and smaller automobile parts, more sophisticated and detailed parts can be manufactured through LIMS (Liquid Injection Molding System) using LSR.
