Potting Compound seals electrical components/wiring.

Press Release Summary:




Syon® Tru-Cast® 111 thermally conductive epoxide formulation fills voids completely and cures with minimal air entrapment. Black, aluminum-oxide-filled compound can be used as structural adhesive to create heat-sink lap joints. Depending on curing agent used, mixed viscosity rages from 2,000-20,000 cps, pot life varies from 30 min to 3.5 hr, and functional cure time takes from 24 hr @ 77°F to 60 min @ 200°F.

Thermally Conductive Potting Compounds



DANVERS, MA - Syon® brand thermally conductive potting/encapsulating compounds from Devcon are ideal for sealing electrical components or wiring in applications where heat dissipation is required. These versatile, low-shrink epoxide formulations mix and pour easily, fill voids completely, and cure with minimal air entrapment. If necessary, a casting's heat tolerance can be boosted and its cure speed quickened by heating the compounds during the curing process. Syon products are available in a range of package sizes from disposable, single-application Acu-paks® to bulk containers.

Syon Tru-Cast® 111 High-Density Potting and Casting Resin provides exceptional thermal conductivity and a low coefficient of thermal expansion. In addition to potting applications, this black, aluminum-oxide-filled compound can be used as a structural adhesive to create heat-sink lap joints. A choice of three curing agents expands the resin's range of uses. Tru-Cast® 111/901 has a mixed viscosity of 20,000 cps, a pot life of 30 minutes, and a functional cure time of 24 hours at 77° F (or 60 minutes at 250° F). Tru-Cast® 111/924 has a mixed viscosity of 2000 cps, a pot life of 60 minutes, and a functional cure time of 24 hours at 77° F (or 30 minutes at 250° F). Tru-Cast® 111/049, a heat-cured mixture, has a mixed viscosity of 11,000, a pot life of 3.5 hours, and a functional cure time of 60 minutes at 200° F.
