Potting electronics with silicone
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.
