​​​​​​​​​Protect your power electronics with Elkem Silicones.

Smaller and hotter are reoccurring trends due to increasing power density in power electronic devices like IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor). As these devices continue to push size limitations, it becomes increasingly important to protect their electronic components from harsh conditions including high service temperatures, that could affect their performance and efficiency.

The electronics market continues to grow at a rapid rate with increase in demand for connected living, urbanization into smart cities, and high power electronics to meet the output of smart technologies. 

Our product line boasts new potting and encapsulations under our electronics silicone adhesive (ESA) product line, as well as sealing and bonding solutions under our CAF product line, and diverse foam products for lightweight applications proven in sealing, bonding and protection against harsh environmental conditions.
