Potting is the process of sealing or embedding electronic components & assemblies in a liquid resin ( potting compounds ) surrounded by a plastic shell. Performing the potting process on electronics will stop corrosion of metals, shortages, and reduce damage caused by vibration and mechanical stress. Polyurethane, epoxy, acrylic, silicone and UV cure are the materials we use with the potting process. These materials vary in hardness from soft gels to hard plastics and are designed to withstand many specific types of environments. Some have excellent thermal conductivity while others have outstanding chemical or moisture resistance and all these materials provide good dielectric properties and have a wide range of additional properties to select from.
Potting can be one of the lowest cost options to seal your electronic components from the surrounding environment. We provide low, medium and high volume potting services. Potting materials have a wide variety of properties from which to choose, from soft gels to hard plastics and from thermally insulating to thermally conductive.
