Conductive adhesive is a technology to reduce the size of overall electronic products as it helps in minimizing the space of joints in surface mount devices. Conductive adhesive is a material that allows the flow of electrical or thermal energy to pass through it with a strong adhesion between the two surfaces. Conductive adhesive is made from embedding the conductive fillers, such as nickel and silver, into various polymer resins such as polyurethane (PU), epoxy, and silicone among others. Conductive adhesive also helps in reducing the overall weight of the application.
