Passive Component Materials

Resistive and Capacitive Passive Electronic Component Materials

DuPont is a leading global supplier of resistive and capacitive materials for the electronic components market.

DuPont offers several materials suitable for passive components, including multilayer capacitor (MLC) materials such as terminations and electrodes, conductors, resistors, and encapsulants.

Typical applications include chip resistors, resistor networks, multilayer capacitors, and disk capacitors and varistors.

DuPont’s multilayer capacitor materials provide:

  • Excellent green strength
  • Solderability and adhesion
  • Dip cosmetics
  • Platable materials which do not require tumbling or burnishing

Our resistive materials feature:

  • Wide process window including firing temperature and resistor size
  • Excellent green strength
  • Resistor laser trim speed
  • Resistor laser trim stability
  • Power handling
  • Electrostatic discharge
  • Excellent plated adhesion (chips)
  • Solderability and adhesion (networks)
  • Polymeric conductor options available
