Characteristics Uniform partical size distributions that are able to control uniform sizes. Excellent voltage, heat and chemical resistance Uniform partical size distributions that are able to maintain tighter particle size control. Excellent voltage, heat and chemical resistance Divinylbenzene co-polymer particles with black pigment dispersed. Excellent blackness and light shielding properties, and resistance to exudative Compared to silica particles, this particles are stable with sizes reduction and damage to the substrate. High hardness prevent settlement in the resin caused by heat It is an acrylic co-polymer particle that is very soft and it can absorb vibration and noise. Also it reduces the damage to the substrate. Due to the lower spring back (recovery rate) of the particle, it can be used for softer substrates. Silicon polymer based particle . It absorbs vibrations and noise. Lower spring back (recovery rate) of the particles, it can be used for softer substrates Available to coat evenly with diferent type of metals onto plastic particles. Our technology can control hardness of particles and repulsive force. It is a solder coating particle for semiconductor packaging which uses uniform particle size and distribution of soft plastic particles as its core. This technology achieves higher connection reliability, no under filling, narrow spacing and large package.
