Silicone encapsulants and potting materials from Dow Corning are elastomers
that provide excellent stress relief and stable physical and electrical
properties over a wide temperature range. They can be formulated for fast room
temperature cures for improved processing and with high thermal conductivity
for component performance.
Many Dow Corning encapsulants provide excellent adhesion to common substrates
Silicone encapsulants and potting materials offer:
Stress relief for underlying circuitry
Excellent fire resistance
Strong, positive, unprimed adhesion to most common metals and plastics used in
electronics applications, including epoxy glass laminates used in circuit
