Ceramic Lid Attach

APPLICATION NOTE: B-stage Epoxy Seal Ceramic Lid Attachment

StratEdge lids are provided with an attached epoxy preform. Store lids in a clean, dry environment. Lids have a shelf life of 6 months if stored at room temperature and a shelf life of 12 months if stored at +5°C or lower (refrigerated). Cap lids are installed as follows:

  1. Preheat oven to 155-160°C.
  2. Allow cap lids to warm to room temperature before proceeding.
  3. Handle using tweezers or finger cots in a clean area to avoid contamination.
  4. Position cover on the package and secure with a spring clip. Based upon the external perimeter of lids with .020" walls, for perimeter up to 1.4", use 1 lb. spring clip, and for perimeter up to 2.8", use 2 lb. spring clip.
  5. Cure clamped parts for 1 hr.
  6. Remove the assembly from the oven and remove the clips.

Cleaning of cap lids before assembly is not recommended!
