What is the difference between SMT LED packaging with silicone and epoxy resin transparent package? What is the market situation of these two types of packaging?

Answer:

The main difference is the encapsulation method. The liquid silicone is mainly encapsulated and encapsulated, while the gum cake is solid and adopts a transfer molding package. Of course, there is a fundamental difference between the material, silica gel can be used for white light high-power LED, suitable for lighting. The epoxy can only be used in low-power monochrome LED, suitable for display, backlight, induction and other components.

Epoxy resins turn yellow during short wave irradiation or long periods of high temperature, so they are very short lived when applied to high power lighting. That's why the LED lighting market is dominated by silica gel.But because of the low price of epoxy resin (silica gel and not at a level), and storage, use and processing is superior to silica gel, so the low power LED and some optical components still use epoxy resin package.

To package with epoxy SMD beads are used in a lot of outdoor display, because the epoxy adhesive with good adhesion to all better PPI support in outdoor use, our high quality and inexpensive epoxy epoxy call for samples

At present, it is basically made of silica gel, and the epoxy resin is very few. Only those with lower price may use some. Why is it rare to use epoxy? Because of the use of LED epoxy patch cited some discomfort because the cable used in the above: reflow welding, high temperature resistant epoxy epoxy and silicone not lead to separation, produce decay dead lights etc..
