H.B. Fuller FH8301

H.B. Fuller FH8301 is a single-component, heat-curable epoxy underfill encapsulant designed for flip-chip applications such as system-in-package and modules. It is designed for high adhesion and reliability. FH8301 is formulated to flow consistently without voids on die sizes up to 12 x 12 mm. This material can also improve the reliability of chip scale packages (CSP) and ball grid array (BGA) package assemblies.

Applications & Uses

Cure Method
Preparation for Material Usage

1. Do not open the package before completely thawing.

2. Thaw to room temperature (25°C) before using. Any moisture present on the container after thawing should be removed before opening the container.

3. Seal any remaining material and store immediately at -40°C.

4. Once removed from original packaging, allow thawing syringes to equilibrate in tip-down orientation. Handle only the tip or flange. Do not handle syringes from the body.

5. Do not thaw material more than one time.

Directions for Use

Selection of dispense equipment should be determined by application requirements - for advice on equipment selection and process optimization, users should contact HB Fuller technical support.

1. Ensure that air is not introduced to product during equipment set-up.

2. For best results, the substrate should be preheated to 80 to 100 °C. Ensure that the component and substrate have reached the prescribed temperature prior to dispensing the material. Measuring the substrate temperature adjacent to the component using a thermocouple is recommended.

3. The product can be dispensed using a pneumatic, auger or jet pump dispensing system.

4. Contact HB Fuller technical support for dispensing process recommendations.

Clean-Up

Equipment, brushes, and spillage can be cleaned promptly after use with a mixture of anhydrous isopropyl alcohol and acetone that should be discarded after each use.
