Encapsulants face a unique combination of challenges once in-service. Thermal cycling can cause mechanical stress via high rates of expansion and contraction. In high temperature environments, an encapsulant’s mass can trap heat leading to premature thermal degradation. More... Our range of encapsulants deliver the ‘toughness’ to withstand thermal cycling, and where needed, the measure of thermal conductivity to allow for proper heat flow.Beyond the effects of temperature, high voltage applications place a demand for high dielectric performance. Extreme chemical and explosive environments require strong chemical resistance, while process and dispensing constraints may necessitate a certain rheology, from very thick materials that resist ‘sag’ to pourable options that flow easily to fill voids around objects of varying shapes and orientations. We address all of these challenges and more when reviewing your material needs. Less
Coatings are the first line of defense, often the most important protective layer against external forces. We develop and manufacture functional coatings that protect substrates under a variety of conditions. For us, coatings are not defined by their decorative or aesthetic More... appearance, but by their ability to provide the critical performance essential to your application.Our coatings are formulated to withstand environmental, chemical, electrical and/or physical environments. From EHS concerns, to application methods, cure requirements, and the final cured properties;, we work closely with you to develop an understanding of your application and the conditions present throughout the required life cycle. Less
We develop and manufacture adhesives to bond dissimilar substrates under a variety of application and operating conditions. Adhesive chemistries can be optimized for the substrates and service environment, and tailored for the application where off-the-shelf materials More... fall short.We work closely with you to develop a complete understanding of the demands present in your application throughout the required lifecycle. We optimize properties such as viscosity, cure time and chemical compatibility to provide the functional properties required to insure successful service life at application conditions. Less
