Abstract

A liquid epoxy resin composition includes (A) a liquid epoxy resin, (B) a curing agent, (C) a curing accelerator, (D) an inorganic filler, and (E) a silicone-modified resin resulting from addition reaction of an alkenyl-containing epoxy or phenolic resin with an organopolysiloxane, the liquid epoxy resin composition curing into a product having a Tg of 30-120° C. and a specific dynamic viscoelasticity behavior. The composition is adherent to silicon chips, the cured product is highly resistant to heat and thermal shocks, and the composition is useful as sealant for flip chip type semiconductor devices.
