Electrolube will launch their newest advancements in encapsulation resins, developed specifically for the Indian market, on stand 1-32 at India’s Electronics Week, KTPO Trade Center in Bengalaru on 13-15 February 2020.
The pioneering new resins have been formulated at the company’s manufacturing facility in Bangalore, using locally sourced materials to ensure highly competitive pricing and delivery within impressive short lead times.
Electrolube’s Indian team leveraged group technical support and key local knowledge to create a series of cost-effective new resins with higher specifications than existing products on the market.
Electrolube has worked closely with these customers and understands the requirement for a highly specialised resin that protects the security of designs and circuits, even under the medium of X-ray. ER6010 is a two part thermally conductive system that exhibits good flow characteristics, facilitating the potting of even the most complex and difficult geometries. It also has a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +160oC and a thermal conductivity of 0.53 W/m.K.
The ER6010 epoxy offers good chemical resistance and a high level of protection in a range of different environments. The cure time is 24 hours, at 23oC but this can be accelerated with heat. Following encapsulation of a circuit with ER6010, the circuit components and design features are completely protected allowing complete confidentiality.
Electrolube’s new silicone encapsulation resins include SC4004 and SC4003, which are highly suited for automotive and power supply applications. SC4004, an alternative solution to Dow Corning’s CN-8760 and has a high level of thermal conductivity (1.0 W/m.K), enabling efficient heat dissipation and offering a wide temperature range – up to +2200C for short excursions of up to 30 minutes. SC4003 has a temperature range of -60 to +2000C (up to +2200C for short excursions of up to 30 minutes) and meets UL94 V-0. Both silicone products feature user friendly 1:1 ratios with the added benefit of fast cure mechanisms at room temperature and are very competitively priced, considering the market’s increasing silicone prices.
The silicone modified epoxy resin ER6007 is a repairable black resin mixed in a simple 1:1 ratio. The special characteristics of this encapsulation compound determine its suitability for LED drivers, power surge protection devices and power supplies. The temperature range is -40 to +1800C (up to +2000C for short excursions of up to 30 minutes) and the thermal conductivity level is 0.66 W/m.K.
Electrolube India’s General Manager, Padmanabha Shaktivelu, comments, “These innovative new resin solutions are a prime example of Electrolube’s dedicated approach to solving problems. With a strong ethos of both research and collaboration, we are continually developing new products, not only to ensure that the product is cost-effective and right for the job, but also to advise and help our customers choose the safest, most appropriate and economical method of application.”
Ron Jakeman, Managing Director of Electrolube, said, “We are looking forward to meeting new and existing customers at the EFY Expo to assist with providing electro-chemical solutions from our established core product groups. This year our stand will take on a minimalist approach, echoing our latest corporate branding and company ethos as the solutions people. Demand for our award-winning products is so strong and India Electronics Week presents an excellent opportunity to share our expertise in resins, conformal coatings, contact lubricants and thermally conductive materials. Electrolube strives to meet the increasing needs of local manufacturers and we are looking forward to helping visitors find solutions to their electro-chemical challenges.”
