mounting adhesive
Crystalbond™ 509 bonds an advanced ceramic
which is diced into 25-50 mil sections.

Wash away adhesives are ideal for temporary mounting of products that require dicing, polishing and other machining processes. They exhibit high bond strength and adhere readily to metals, glass and ceramics by melting with heat. When processing is complete, the adhesives are removed by reheating and cleaning with environmentally friendly cleaning agents.

Typical Applications:
  • machining advanced ceramics
  • lapping and polishing optical components
  • dicing ceramic substrates and semiconductor wafers
  • dicing ferrites, glasses and piezoelectrics
  • dicing metal and optical single crystals
  • mounting cross-sections for electron microscopy
  • backfilling components for temporary mechanical support

Crystalbond™ 509
Provides excellent adhesion and minimizes clogging of diamond tools compared to waxes. They are transparent in thin cross-sections. Soluble in acetone, odorless, non-flammable, biodegradable and may be rinsed in water.

Crystalbond™ 555 & 555-HMP
A low melting point adhesive for moderate stress machining processes. It is transparent in thin cross-sections and is soluble in hot water. 555 has a Flow Point of 120ºF (54ºC); 555-HMP is 150ºF (66ºC);

Crystalbond™ 590
A high strength, resilient adhesive system, ideal for doing miniature and tall parts. It is soluble in methanol or IPA.

Wafer-Mount™ 559 Mounting Adhesive

mounting adhesive
Plastic film peeled away from paper backing; specimen about to be mounted.
Wafer-Mount™ 559 A clear adhesive on a plastic film that is ideal for holding silicon wafers, alumina, or glass substrates for scribing. No heating is required; just remove the paper backing to expose the adhesive layer, position the wafer substrate on the film and press down with firm pressure to insure adhesion. A vacuum manifold or mechanical device may be used to hold wafer/plastic film during dicing or scribing. After dicing or scribing acetone or MEK may be used to separate the specimen from the Wafer-Mount™ 559. Size is 10" x 10" x 0.005" thick in packages of 2.

Ideal for scribing/dicing wafers with vacuum hold down fixturing.

Application Procedures:
  1. Cut the Wafer-Mount™ sheet to the desired shape and size and peel the backing paper away from the plastic film. Place the wafer, face up, onto the exposed sticky surface of the adhesive film. Press firmly to assure good adhesion. Please note: The adhesive sheet should be placed on the dull or back side of the wafer, not the top or shiny side.
  2. Process the substrate as required, then remove parts by heating in a well ventilated area to 300°F for 2-3 minutes until the adhesive softens. Use a tool to slide the substrate off the mounting plate.
  3. Clean with acetone or MEK.

The shelf life of cyanoacrylate glues (and epoxies) can be extended by storing them at lower temperatures; -20°C. At lower temperatures, the adhesive becomes very viscous and the speed of chemical reactions is practically reduced to zero. It will keep the adhesive stable for years. Before use, let the adhesive thaw with the container sealed to avoid condensation into the adhesive.





PELCO® Pro Cyanoacrylate Debonder

PELCO® Pro Cyanoacrylate Debonder

The PELCO® Pro Cyanoacrylate Debonder destabilizes and debonds cured cyanoacrylates. Useful for releasing specimens from holders, cleaning cyanoacrylates from surfaces and removing cured cyanoacylates from fingers. Works on all brands of cyanoacrylate glue (Loctite, Henkel, Permabond, 3M™, PELCO®, Aron Alpha, etc.). The debonder is also a solvent, please check before using on plastic surfaces / samples and avoid repeated skin contact. Supplied in 20ml bottle with dispenser tip.
