Potting compounds are at the frontline of electronics assembly, delivering effective protection in challenging environmental conditions while improving mechanical strength and offering high electric insulation. Used within a variety of industries, electrical potting compounds are found within a broad range of consumer electronics, as well as used in applications across the automotive, aerospace, and other industries where electronic assemblies are prevalent.
Electronics potting materials are a permanent protective solution which will remain as an integral part of the unit to protect the electronic assembly while providing numerous benefits:
- Electrical insulation
- Enhanced mechanical strength
- Heat dissipation
- Vibration/shock resistance
- Corrosion protection
- Chemical protection
- Environmental influences
Potting compounds help solve numerous problems within the manufacturing and assembly of electronics products. The main reasons for using potting compounds over other types of sealant are to protect against moisture to prevent short circuits, to offer increased chemical protection in complex assemblies, to provide mechanical shock and vibration resistance in challenging environmental conditions, and finally, to provide concealment of the intellectual property held within highly developed circuitry.
Henkel’s range of potting compounds is comprehensive and versatile enough to meet all of these challenges, as well as allowing manufacturers to develop new products to exacting specifications.
