UL-Listed Potting Compound Resists High Temperatures

Cranston, RI — Epoxies, Etc. has announced the availability of a UL-listed epoxy with enhanced temperature resistance and thermal conductivity.

The company’s 50–3150RFR Black Epoxy with Catalyst 30 has a relative temperature index (RTI) rating of 130ºC, significantly higher than the 90ºC RTI for most epoxies. The higher RTI ensures that the potting compound will survive elevated temperatures for long periods of time, which is increasingly important as electronics get smaller and hotter.

To reflect the improved RTI performance, 50–3150RFR’s listings now include UL 746B to 130ºC. The compound has also earned the UL 94 V–0 flame-retardant listing.

“One of the problems with UL-listed potting compounds is that it can be difficult to find listed grades that also have all the other physical properties you need. We continually address this problem by formulating UL-listed products that up the ante on properties,” reports Mike Harrington, president, Epoxies, Etc.
