Encapsulating Elastomers offer hydrolytic stability.

Press Release Summary:



Two-component urethane series encapsulants have durometers from 25 to 55 Shore A. Unfilled materials maintain integrity over operating temperature range of -40 deg to 125 deg C. Glass transition temperature of -72 deg C makes them suitable for low temperature potting applications. They offer electrical insulation, thermal cycling stability, chemical resistance, and no shrinkage. Mixed viscosities @ 25°C range from 4,200 to 1,600 cps.

Unfilled Low Durometer Urethane Elastomers


20-2305 Shore A 25
20-2310 Shore A 40
20-2350 Shore A 55

DESCRIPTION:

This two component urethane series are low durometer (25-55 Shore A), potting, casting, and encapsulating components. They are unfilled materials engineered to provide excellent hydrolytic stability and low moisture permeability. They have outstanding thermal cycling properties, low glass transition temperatures and low embedment stress to sensitive electronic components.

These unique urethane formulations maintain their integrity over a wide operating temperature range, -40°C to 125°C. The low glass transition temperature of -72°C makes these urethanes ideal for low temperature potting applications.

FEATURES

*Maintains flexibility at low temperatures
*Excellent electrical insulation
*Low stress on sensitive components
*Unaffected by moisture at high temperatures
*Thermal cycling stability
*Chemical resistance
*Hydrolytic stability
*No shrinkage

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

1) By weight, thoroughly mix 10 parts Part B to 100 parts Part A. Two components should be carefully weighed in metal, plastic, or glass containers. Avoid using paper cups and wooden stirrers.

2) Mixed material can be degassed at 1 to 5 mm Hg to ensure bubble free castings. Containers should be large enough to allow frothing.

3) Cure according to one of the following cure schedules:

25°C 24 Hours
45°C 2.5 Hours
65°C 1.5 Hours
85°C 40 Minutes

STORAGE & HANDLING & SAFETY:

Store both components at 75-85°F in original containers. If the containers are opened and the contents partially used, the material left in the container should be blanketed with dry nitrogen before sealing. Carefully read Material Safety Data Sheets before using.
