Electronic potting compound is used to potting electronic components to avoid direct exposure of components to the air, prevent components from being corroded by the environment, improve the service life of components, and achieve the functions of waterproof, dustproof and thermal conductivity. Electronic potting glue usually has three materials: epoxy resin, silicone and polyurethane. The electronic potting glue used on different components will also be different. In the face of so many types of potting glue, we should How to choose the brand potting glue suitable for your product?
Coolthermo tells you that we can consider the following:
- Electrical and insulating properties (silicon is the best, followed by polyurethane, epoxy resin is the worst);
- Resistance to cold and heat changes (silicon is the best, followed by polyurethane, epoxy resin is the worst);
- After potting, the temperature it needs to withstand (if the temperature is around 100 °C, then epoxy resin and polyurethane can be used, and silicone can withstand high and low temperatures of -40 °C to 200 °C);
- Thermal conductivity (both epoxy and silicone have good thermal conductivity, polyurethane is the worst);
In addition to the above factors, we can also consider other considerations, such as the internal stress of the components, outdoor use or indoor use, stress conditions, whether flame retardant, color requirements, and manual or automatic potting are required. and many more.
Today, Coolthermo has sorted out the famous suppliers of various types of potting compounds in my country for you to choose and use.
