Ordered Z-axis electroconductive sheet materials are produced by entrapping bodies of fusible, polymeric, electroconductive adhesive at predetermined spaced locations in a sheet-like carrier of fusible, polymeric, dielectric adhesive including a thermoplastic component. The materials are useful for ...

Kenneth B Gilleo, Michael C Corey: Method of making electroconductive adhesive particles for Z-axis application. Fry s Metals, Shapiro and Shapiro, July 2, 1996: US05531942 (13 worldwide citation)

Electroconductive resin adhesive particles are incorporated in a dielectric-resin-adhesive-containing carrier to form a Z-axis adhesive. Particles are preferably produced by printing techniques or by in-fluid forming techniques, the latter being particularly suited for the formation of substantially ...
