WACKER Silicone Encapsulants and Potting Compounds
About WACKER Silicone Encapsulants and Potting Compounds
Silicone encapsulants from WACKER are effective for the potting and encapsulation of electronic control units, sensors, printed circuit boards, semiconductor devices or microchips. Potting or encapsulation provides efficient protection from the environment, assisting in reliable operation over the lifetime of electronic devices.
We offer one and two component WACKER products for potting and encapsulation applications. Silicone gels offer minimal thermal stress on sensitive parts and ensure that the device will work properly even when exposed to extreme temperature fluctuations or strong vibrations. For sensor applications, gels characterised by particularly low volatility and low bleed are becoming increasingly important.
