Abstract

A method for adhesion preservation of Al surfaces treated with a conversion coating to silicone adhesives as those used for coverplate purposes in electronic packages. It has been discovered that cyanide containing conversion coatings interfere with the curing chemistry of Pt-based silicone adhesives (type preferred for these applications) yielding detrimental mechanical integrity at the metal/polymer interface. A baking step of 2 hrs at 200C is sufficient to degrade cyanide included in the conversion coating prior to adhesive application to provide reliable adhesion. Experimental results have confirmed these findings.
