Can Smart Technology Make Vehicles Safer? Enable The Future of Autonomous Driving & Vehicle Design

Safer mobility is the promise of autonomous driving. Like additional sets of eyes that are watching out for us, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) help drivers maneuver in both challenging and everyday road conditions, warn drivers about obstacles and emergencies, and improve the vehicle’s handling. Various sensors feed critical data to ADAS devices and need to be protected from the harsh environments where vehicles exist.

The assembly and integration of sensor systems and modules require mechanical fixing, thermal management, vibration damping, electromagnetic shielding and more. Using decades of experience in automotive electronics, our world-class R&D scientists provide you with a broad portfolio of innovative, proven silicone materials developed for ADAS applications.


Why Do Silicones Perform Well in Sensor Applications?

  • Thermal stability
  • Tunable modulus, hardness and cure chemistries
  • Thermal management performance
  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection
  • Light-weighting
  • Protection
  • Hydrophobicity
  • Adhesion
  • Processing

Silicones in ADAS Sensor Assembly

  1. Encapsulants/gels protect electronic units and sensors
  2. Thermally conductive silicones dissipate the heat generated by the PCB
  3. Fast assembly adhesives/foams seal and assemble ADAS modules
  4. Award-winning electrically conductive sealant for grounding and shielding against EMI
  5. Encapsulants/gels for potting connectors
  6. Conformal coatings to protect from abrasion
