    Potting

    Electronics are protected against water and alteration with a layer of hard clear epoxy potted in place. The barcode can be read through the epoxy layer.

    Sealants for Potting and Encapsulation

    Hernon Manufacturing epoxies, silicones, and polyurethanes are used for potting and encapsulation. The high chemical, impact, and temperature resistance of epoxies make them ideal for protecting sensitive electronics. Hernon Manufacturing potting materials start out as low-viscosity self-leveling liquids that quickly fill gaps in and around components. Cured results can vary widely including rigid, opaque compounds or clear, flexible compounds as needed to meet manufacturing specs.

    All Hernon Manufacturing potting materials are 100% solid systems with NO solvents. Curing for different formulas can be initiated using heat via the Hernon Manufacturing UV LED curing lights or anaerobically with the available low exotherm formulas. The Hernon Manufacturing full-service lab offers substrate thermal expansion matching and pulls from an active library of over 5000 different adhesive and sealant formulas to ensure strong adhesion to most substrates including composite materials.

    Silastomer 343

    Silastomer® 343 is a high performance, single component, ready to use adhesive / sealant. It has a paste-like consistency, which cures to a tough, resilient and durable silicone rubber when exposed to moisture in the air. Designed to provide excellent oil resistance and can be used as a form in place gasket. It will adhere to clean metals, glass, most types of wood, silicone resin, vulcanized silicone rubber, natural and synthetic fiber, ceramic, many plastics and painted surfaces. Silastomer® 343 provides excellent resistance to moisture, weathering, vibration, ozone and extreme temperatures. It can be applied in surface temperatures of 0°F to above 120°F with no loss in performance. Fully cured Silastomer® 343 can withstand extended periods at temperatures up to 400°F.
