Potting & Encapsulation
Potting and encapsulation compounds protect our customers’ products from harsh environmental conditions. We may be able to customise a material to suit your requirements.
Potting compound and accurate, reliable dispensing for automotive lighting
Requiring a potting compound which could provide environmental protection to their high-powered outdoor LED lights, lighting manufacturer Venta Global selected IRS 3078 and a metering, mixing, and dispensing system to create a straightforward and repeatable process.
Potting a bespoke telematics system
Bulk Tainer Logistics required a material which offered ATEX certification and high levels of environmental protection to pot their sophisticated smart monitoring device. By utilising a 2-K-DOS metering, mixing and dispensing system and a flame retardant compound Bulk Tainer Logistics was able to establish an easy, robust, and repeatable process.
Potting a pressure-resistant device for deep sea fishing
London-based start-up, SafetyNet Technologies, sought a potting material to protect their innovative ‘Pieces Deep’ fishing lights from 100 bar pressures at depths of 1000m. Utilising a combination of optically clear Opti-tec 4210 and opaque IRS 3071 allowed SNTech to achieve environmental protection without sacrificing light performance.
Reliable dispensing performance and component protection for measuring equipment manufacturer
SebaKMT, part of the Megger Group, was the world’s first owner of a preeflow eco-DUO450. For nearly ten years, this metering, mixing and dispensing system has been reliably and accurately dispensing their Wacker SilGel 612 silicone gel potting compound onto the parts for the noise measurement instruments they manufacture.
Electronic textiles development benefits from UV curing resin and precise dispensing
The Advanced Textiles Research Group at Nottingham Trent University has been developing electronic textiles to add functionality to materials and garments. Part of the process involves encasing microchips within a polymer micro-pod in order to protect them from mechanical and chemical stresses during everyday use.
Potting LED strips for outdoor signage made easy with silicone gel
A UK manufacturer of outdoor signage and lighting products was seeking to encapsulate their LED strips to protect them from environmental damage, whilst maintaining a desirable aesthetic in the finished product. Wacker SilGel 612 fit the bill.
Potting compound protects trace heating system thermostats
The development process of STOPFREEZE’s COMBI and KIT products required a method of protecting the IP67 weatherproof in-line thermostat with integral LED indicators from water ingress and physical damage in its outdoor situation.
