Polyurethane Systems

Advantages:

High Elongation at break; available in soft to hard; Low heat development (large volume castings); easy to accelerate; Excellent impact strength; Excellent thermal shock resistance (hot & cold cycling); Good mechanical properties. Re-entrable systems easy to process.

Disadvantages:

Sensitive to humidity when liquid; Soft and very elastic systems have a dielectic constant which is not stable above 50 C; Exact mixing ratio required. Recommended Applications: Equipment sensitive to vibration and where low shrinkage around the components is required. Supplied in twin-packs.

Epoxy Systems

Advantages:

Excellent adhesive and mechanical strength;

Slow, medium and fast curing;

Excellent tensile and electrical properties;

Flexible, rigid, and tough formulations available

Good thermal shock resistance;

Not sensitive to humidity in liquid form (long shelf life packed in ordinary buckets). Clear systems easy to process.

Good corrosion inhibiting effect. 

Easy to add fillers.

Disadvantages:

High heat development (exotherm). Amines are more of an health risk; Exact mixing ratios required.

Polyester Systems

Advantages:

Medium adhesive and mechanical strength; Not sensitive to humidity in liquid form. Very clear castings possible (rigid); Soft and flexible systems available; Low cost; can be filled with fillers quite easily. Catalyst required 1 to 2%.

Disadvantages:

Rigid systems are brittle; Low impact resistance; High heat development (exotherm) Small volume casting; Poor Thermal shock; Waxy surface; High shrinkage; Six month shelf life. 

Electronic equipment may be sensitive to shrinkage or vibration, therefore we recommend the use of polyurethane or epoxy potting system when ever possible. However PU systems are sensitive to humidity and have to be packed in foil twin packs.

Epoxy systems are not sensitive to humidity to the same extent and can be supplied in ordinary plastic buckets. Both Epoxy and PU must be mixed exactly according to the data sheet mixing ratio (max. allowed error 3% on the hardener)

PU Systems

EPOXY SYSTEMS

Clear Epoxy Systems

CR204 - CH204

Widely used to encapsulate small power transformers, including 3000V transformers for security fencing. This system has a convenient 2:1 mix ratio, low viscosity and is slightly flexibilized.

ER20- EH16

General purpose potting resin, most often used with EH16 for glossy surfaces.

LR21 - EH96 or LH21

Low Viscosity casting and Potting Resin

LR214 Low Viscosity Resin

General purpose, slightly amber in colour, low viscosity resin used for casting / impregnating applications. Rigid and high exotherm. Hardeners recommended – EH16 (very good gloss and clear); Tek113B (amber); EH96 (good colour – hard, HDT 100C, high exotherm). For better clarity use EH230 (water clear hardener) with long pot life, low exotherm and shrinkage - ideal for potting LED Lighting systems.

ER362 / ER363

Highly filled to reduce shrinkage in very large castings, such as electro-magnets. Usually used in combination with EH62 hardener offer a HDT of about 90 C. For higher HDT it can be used with CH350 or EH4 (post – curing required). ER363 contains non - abrasive fillers. Easier to remove for repairing large magnets

ER375 (White)

ER375 - EH375 is a highly flexible casting epoxy for potting and sealing sensitive electronic components or where there is vibration. ER375 with EH396 is more flexible.
