Self-Fusing Tape (Check out Arlon SFT!!!!)
Arlon and MOX-Tape® silicone tapes are produced from specially formulated silicone rubber. They bond irreversibly to provide an insulative barrier that is resistant to moisture, oxygen, ozone and corona over a wide temperature range (-65oF up to +500oF). Our products provide superior electrical insulation with a dielectric strength of 300 VPM minimum at 356oF/180oC.

Flexible Heater Substrates
Introducing InsilThin™ - Thin Profile Thermal Insulation compatible with Arlon Flexible Heater Substrates
Arlon has introduced a next generation flexible heater compound, 427CR. This UL-recognized compound delivers best in class thermal stability performance.
The use of thin, flexible silicone rubber/fiberglass fabric composite materials is the standard for high temperature heaters. Arlon manufactures a full line of UL recognized thermally stable silicone rubber/fiberglass fabric composites for use as insulation for flexible heaters. We also offer resistive foil composites, such as Alloy 600/silicone, eliminating the bonding step. Arlon's silicone rubber composites operate reliably and offer long life in both wire wound and etched foil heater applications.
•UL Recognized •Flame Retardant
•Broad Temperature Range
•Ozone, Weather & Chemical Resistant

Electronic Adhesives: Thermabond®
Thermal management of electronic systems is critical to robust design. Printed circuit boards used in aerospace and automotive electronic assemblies operate in demanding environments with exposure to low temperatures, high temperatures, and vibration.
Our Thermabond® electronic adhesives are a unique class of elastomeric thermal interface materials that provide thermal-mechanical stress decoupling and a reliable heat transfer path. With Thermabond®, adjoining components move freely during operation -- preventing stress build-up created by CTE mismatch. Thermabond® is available in a range of thermal conductivities, including an electrically conductive line for ground plane continuity, ESD grounding, and EMI shielding, and RF shielding.
•Exceptional Shear Modulus & Strength
•Low Temperature Cure
