Potting Compound cures quickly in thick applications.

Trigger Cure(TM) compound cures at room temperature to depths of 1 in. or more, and in areas under components where light does not reach. Two-part compound is applied with typical disposable-tip, static mix dispensers. Exposure to long-wave UV light cures product to depth of 1/4 inch in 20 seconds or less; remaining liquid resin gels in 7 to 20 minutes. Full cure is achieved in 24 hours at room...
