Novoset, LLC, Peapack, New Jersey, USA, December 26, 2019, is pleased to announce the conclusion of a Licensing Agreement with Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. of Japan for the manufacturing and marketing of modified hydrocarbon resins based on Novoset’s intellectual property. The new resins possess Ultra-Low dielectric loss properties at high frequencies, has low CTE, very low moisture absorption, high Tg and excellent long-term thermo-oxidative stability @250°C. These products are targeted for a range of Fifth Generation (5G) applications such as chip encapsulation, underfill, molding compounds, mm Wave base station infrastructure (both for digital and RF signal) for smartphones, high layer count Printed Circuit Board (PCB) servers, routers for “cloud computing “ and semiconductor packaging. These resins are specifically designed for use in devices enabling innovative next generation 5G technologies like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Due to their extremely low moisture absorption and other chemical resistances at high temperatures and high frequency, these products are suitable for various demanding aerospace applications where Ultra-Low dielectric, low moisture properties and high Tg are essential. Various aerospace processes such as resin infusion, hot melt prepreg, Filament Winding (FW) and other liquid processes can be adapted due to low and stable viscosity. Dr. Sajal Das, Chief Executive Officer of Novoset, LLC stated: “We are pleased to collaborate with Shin -Etsu Chemical, Japan to commercialize these unique products to address material gaps and difficult-to- process current 5G materials (targeted to mm Wave substrates, Antennas) such as Liquid -Crystal Polymers (LCP), Polyimides (PI) and Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE). Shin-Etsu Chemical is our ideal collaborator due to their in-house 5G applications and global footprint in semiconductors and other high-end industries”, Ken McMahon, Advisory Board Member, Novoset, LLC commented . The resins were developed at Novoset Technology Center in Berkeley Heights, NJ (USA). Under this Agreement, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. will manufacture the resins globally in the relevant electronics industries and market the products under SLK name. Novoset will market the products in Aerospace, Oil & Gas and other industries and continue to improve and expand the range of products according to market needs.
