Electrolube have added a new epoxy resin to their encapsulation resin range, available from HK Wentworth . This innovative epoxy, ER2218, will be on display at National Manufacturing Week Exhibition 2010. ER2218two part encapsulation compounds are designed to meet the highest level of flame retardency according to UL94. These encapsulation compounds incorporate a novel flame retardant, resulting in an ultra-low viscosity flame retardant formulation providing application solutions for a vast array of products. The resin in the encapsulation compounds is RoHS compliant and utilises non-halogenated flame retardants and a hardener free of aromatic amines.
ER2218 encapsulation compounds have excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and exhibits excellent resistance to water and a wide variety of chemicals, therefore providing excellent protection in a range of environments. Additionally, the product has been specifically designed for compatibility with re-flow applications, offering a wide continuous operating temperature and remaining stable for short term, high temperature excursions. ER2218 is available in resin packs for air-free mixing of small volumes. Bulk product and resin kits will also be available for larger volumes. For use in conjunction with ER2218, Electrolube’s OP9004 non-flammable cleaner has been designed for cleaning machines and containers immediately after use. OP9003 Resin Stripper is ideal for removing cured resin when necessary.
