Develops conductive adhesives with stable contact resistance and desirable impact performance. Effects of purity of the resins and moisture absorption on contact resistance are investigated. Several different additives (oxygen scavengers and corrosion inhibitors) on contact resistance stability during elevated temperature and humidity aging are studied, and effective additives are identified. Then, several rubber-modified epoxy resins and two synthesized epoxide-terminated polyurethane resins are introduced into ECA formulations to determine their effects on impact strength. The loss factor, tan δ, of each formulation is measured using a dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA) and impact strength is evaluated using the National Center for Manufacturing Science (NCMS) standard drop test procedure. Finally, high performance conductive adhesives are formulated by combining the modified resins and the effective additives. It is found that 1) purity of the resins and moisture absorption of the formulation affect the contact resistance stability of an ECA; 2) the oxygen scavengers and corrosion inhibitors can delay contact resistance shift; 3) one of the corrosion inhibitors is very effective in stabilizing the contact resistance; 4) some rubber-modified epoxy resins and the epoxide-terminated polyurethane resins can provide the conductive adhesives with superior impact performance; and 5) conductive adhesives with stable contact resistance and desirable impact performance are developed
