Electronic Materials

To sustain the continued, rapid expansion of the electronics sector, manufacturers need electric assembly solutions that are durable, reliable, and capable of high performance despite their exposure to harsh conditions. Electronic components must effectively withstand stress, vibration, thermal fluctuations, moisture, contaminants, and more. Electric assembly materials help protect electronic devices, keep them running optimally, and support longer component lifecycles.

At Robert McKeown Company, Inc., we specialize in the fabrication of high-performance, high-quality electronics materials. Our product offerings range from thermal management, encapsulation, and grounding solutions to tapes, adhesives, and sealants.

Electronic Assembly Products

Electronics manufacturers have many options to choose from to effectively assemble electronic parts and devices. Some common assembly products include:

  • Adhesives
  • Encapsulants
  • Thermal interface materials
  • EMI/RFI Shielding products
  • Specialty tapes
  • Conformal coatings

Robert McKeown offers a broad spectrum of electronic materials for assemblies, but we’ll focus on the first three products here.


Our assembly products have an array of applications in the electronics industry, including:

  • Encapsulation. Encapsulating electronics like PCBs or LED lights keeps dust, moisture, and corrosive chemicals from entering an assembly. In addition to these contaminants, the encapsulating compound protects electronic parts against vibration and impact shocks.
  • Waterproofing. Waterproofing is essential for protecting components in electric assemblies from humidity and moisture. Sealants keep water out to prevent corrosion and part damage or failure.
  • Bonding. Electric assembly materials are effective for structural bonding and other bonding tasks. For example, these materials bond optical displays, affixing a touch panel or protective glass layer on an LCD module for protection, reduced reflection, enhanced visibility, and air gap removal. With chips, electric assembly materials help them form successful electrical connections with thermal and electrical conductivity.
  • Die attach. Helpful in the assembly of microelectronics and more, die attach or bonding joins a semiconductor die to various potential substrates, such as another die or a PCB.
  • Touchscreen and camera module assembly. Touchscreens and camera modules on digital devices such as smartphones require quality materials for reliable assembly.
  • Hand soldering. A common, simple electronic engineering technique, hand soldering allows you to use melted solder to join components.
