Since 1994, Conductive Compounds has been a leading supplier of engineered materials for the global electronics assembly market. In addition to standard product lines of conductive and resistive inks, UV curable dielectrics and insulators, adhesives, coatings, transducer inks, and potting compounds, Conductive Compounds specializes in custom formulations for new applications in the printed electronics industry.
The company’s products are used across a diverse range of industries, including consumer electronics, computer, automotive, medical devices and sensors, industrial controls, aerospace, photovoltaic, telecommunication, electronic packaging, and electronic display technology.
The Conductive Compounds asset purchase is part of a broad, ongoing search by MicroChem for opportunities to augment its existing materials technologies with new and innovative products and services. Conductive Compounds functional inks, coatings and compounds provide a complementary enhancement to a number of MicroChem products, while MicroChem’s facility enables future expansion for manufacturing capacity of Conductive Compounds flagship products.
In addition to the current deal, MicroChem recently expanded its product offerings through the acquisition in June of Paratronix, Inc., a leading provider of parylene coating services and equipment.
