Gel and Encapsulant Processing - GeneralGel and Encapsulant Processing - General

Dow Corning® brand addition cure gels and elastomers are solventless silicone materials designed for potting and encapsulating electronic components. They are available in heat-curing and room-temperature-curing versions, both clear and opaque. They are supplied in either one or two-part systems. The two-part 1 to 1 mix ratio products are supplied as Part A and Part B. The 10 to 1 mix ratio products are supplied as a base and curing agent.

Most Dow Corning silicone elastomers and gels have viscosities low enough to flow readily around intricate parts. When properly cured, they form resilient coatings that provide protection from moisture, dirt, shock, vibration and other harsh environmental factors. All are resistant to radiation and high temperature. In addition, several elastomers have been certified to the UL 94 Flammability classification.

Dow Corning provides a broad line of gels and elastomers offering a choice of physical properties. The product line features materials with varying hardness, cure time, viscosity and primerless adhesion. These broad feature offerings allow you to choose the correct material for your application. You can connect to our interactive Product Finder for Gels or Encapsulants here.
