Description

Opti-tec™ 4200 is a clear, water-white polyurethane resin designed for the encapsulation of electronics, LEDs, electrical products and other items where high transparency and aesthetics are important. Opti-tec 4200 optically clear potting compound has excellent non-yellowing colour stability, due to the incorporation of both UV resistant base materials and the addition of UV stabilisers and antioxidants.

Opti-tec 4200 is used for a range of applications from high value LED panels to decorative giftware (e.g. flower impregnation). It is also an excellent resin for the doming of badges, labels and decals.

Opti-tec 4200 is available is a harder version (Opti-tec 4210) and a translucent milky-white version (Opti-tec 4220).
