NuSil Technology to Unveil Line of High-Purity Gels at Sensors Expo
Press release date: May 29, 2009
NuSil Technology will release a new line of high purity gels that reduce moisture permeability by 80% at the upcoming Sensors Expo 2009.
Carpinteria, California May 29, 2009 -- NuSil Technology (http://www.nusil.com), a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for aerospace, aircraft, electronics and photonics industries, will release a new line of high-purity gels at Sensors Expo 2009 next month in Rosemont, Ill. LS-3354, LS2-3354 and LS3-3354 are high-purity gels that reduce moisture permeability by 80 percent when compared to other silicone gels used for encapsulation. Samples will be available to view at NuSil's booth #1009.
LS-3354, LS2-3354 and LS3-3354 are designed for potting, encapsulating, backfilling and dampening applications requiring a soft gel with optical clarity. These gels have a refractive index of 1.54 and are available in a convenient 1:1 mix ratio. With viscosities ranging from 3,500 cP to 8,000 cP, these gels are excellent for dispersing phosphors to obtain a high-brightness white light. Cure can be achieved at ambient temperatures with humidity or accelerated with the addition of heat.
Our new high-purity gels are excellent for protecting fragile electronic components from environmental concerns such as dust, debris, and moisture
LS-3354, LS2-3354 and LS3-3354 address these concerns while still being easy to remove for rework if needed.
"Our new high-purity gels are excellent for protecting fragile electronic components from environmental concerns such as dust, debris, and moisture," said Brian Nash, NuSil's vice president of Marketing and Sales. "LS-3354, LS2-3354 and LS3-3354 address these concerns while still being easy to remove for rework if needed. "
