Epoxy encapsulation material is an epoxy resin used as a semiconductor encapsulate. It finds applications in numerous products where semiconductors are used and employed, such as consumer home appliances, including refrigerators, television sets, vehicles and mobile phones, among others. With major economies moving towards digitalization, developments are being witnessed in the field of IT infrastructure. To match this progress, development of electronic products is picking pace, thereby creating demand for epoxy capsulation materials.
Epoxy Encapsulation is the method of fabricating electronic components with the help of epoxy encapsulation material i.e. epoxy resin, to enhance the physical properties of the electronic material used. In the commercial market-place, numerous resins or materials are available for the encapsulation process. Of this, the epoxy encapsulation material is the most adopted one. As the demand for mechanical safeguarding of electrical components, such as insulated PCBs (Printed circuit boards), continues to grow, manufacturers and suppliers are seeking effective solutions for encapsulation of electronic devices and thus, epoxy encapsulation materials are gaining traction. Also, substantial environmental challenges, such as vibration, moisture, general contamination and thermal or physical shock, have the ability to negatively affect the working of printed circuit boards and electronic components. Growing demand for shielding printed circuit boards has created demand-space for epoxy encapsulation materials globally. Application of epoxy encapsulation material protects the entire device from extreme atmospheric conditions through the formation of a widespread barrier.
