As dependence on consumer electronics grows, so do expectations for their functionality, longevity and resistance to just about everything from heat to mechanical shock to moisture. Protecting against the damaging effects of external influences that can destroy electronic function is critical to a user’s satisfaction with their device. And, it’s why today’s leading consumer product manufacturers partner with Henkel.

One of the world’s top electronic materials innovators, Henkel has developed a complete portfolio of materials that help seal and protect modern consumer devices and systems from the damaging effects of water penetration.

Not only must they be waterproof and drop proof, most of electronical devices also have to survive varied environments and live up to their performance standards even after being exposed to vibration, airborne contaminants, moisture, perspiration and a myriad of other potentially detrimental factors. Every component of a electronic device – from  inside at the board level to outside at the enclosure level – must be protected. At the board level, LOCTITE® ecapsulants, underfills and conformal coatings safeguard printed circuit boards (PCBs) and components against moisture, corrosion, shock, drop and vibration. Wi-Fi enabled devices  are protected from electromagnetic interference with Henkel’s EMI shielding solutions at the package and board level.  Once assembled, PCBs and other electrical components can be completely encapsulated using TECHNOMELT® low pressure molding materials, which offers a streamlined and cost-effective alternative to traditional potting techniques. The spectrum of device protection options from Henkel ensures electronical devices live up to their long-term use expectations.
