LS-3140

Gels

Optically Clear Encapsulation Gel

DESCRIPTION
  • Two-part, low outgassing, clear silicone gel
  • 1.40 refractive index
  • Low modulus
  • Cures at room temperature or rapidly with heat
  • 1:1 Mix Ratio (Part A: Part B)
APPLICATION
  • For protection of sensitive photonics assemblies from mechanical shock, thermal shock, dust, and ambient atmosphere
  • As an embedding or potting compound for environmental protection of electronic assemblies and components, such as LEDs
  • For applications requiring low outgassing and minimal volatile components to avoid contamination in sensitive devices
  • Extended work time allows voids in complex assemblies to fill in and permits time for any trapped air bubbles to float to the fluid surface and escape
  • UV and heat resistant
  • Handles stress during thermal cycling without cracking or delaminating
  • For applications requiring an operating temperature range of-65°C to 240°C (-85°F to 464°F)
