Potting and Encapsulating Elastomers

Silicone Potting and Encapsulating Elastomer

DESCRIPTION
  • Two part, Clear, 1:1 Mix ratio (A:B)
  • Pourable and self-leveling
  • Cures at room temperature
  • Tested per UL-94 and passed V-1
APPLICATION
  • For potting, encapsulating and coating of modules, relays, and a variety of AC/DC converters including high power and planar packages
  • Provides protection from moisture, dust and contaminants
  • Increases resistance to shock and vibration
  • Low viscosity allows the potting of complex geometries without the entrapment of air
  • Pot life is compatible with processes that require dispensing or coating with Part A and B combined
  • Dielectric properties compatible with many devices and increase breakdown voltage of device

*Properties tested on a lot-to-lot basis. Do not use the properties shown in this technical profile as a basis for preparing specifications. Please contact NuSil Technology for assistance and recommendations in establishing particular specifications.

†Recommended cure times are based on the testing performed via ODR (Oscillating Disk Rheometer). However the cure times can be affected by multiple factors, including, but not limited to, quantity of silicone used, time to heat the entire device or mold, and whether the material is cured in pre-heated oven or not.

Recommended Primer CF1-135

Note: Some bonding applications may require the use of a primer.
