Customized solutions for a wide range of applications

Electronics are increasingly present in our lives, from transport to handheld digital devices, via smart lighting systems and electrical grids. These technologies all use a wide array of components – sensors, actuators, central processing units (CPUs), printed circuit boards (PCB), etc. – that need to be protected against environmental factors such as dust and moisture, as well as fluids and heat and fire exposure. Silicones are the materials of choice for potting and encapsulating sensitive components, as they are the best first-line of defense against outside aggression.

Elkem Silicones provides a wide range of solutions for protecting electronic components:

These applications all offer high performance and safety in terms of electrical insulation, adhesion, temperature and fire resistance and durability. Our global presence and supply-chain services, and our design and process experts are available to help you find the silicone potting and encapsulation solutions that meet your needs.
