Electrolube debut coatings & resins at electronica 2014

At electronica 2014, last week, Electrolube exhibited for the first time. In Hall A6, which was dedicated to the automotive sector, the company presented its conformal coatings, resins and contact lubricant products. Hall B1 was dedicated to sensors, micro- and nano-systems, MEMS technologies and electromechanical/system peripherals, where Electrolube demonstrated its capabilities in thermal management.

The company’s AFA aromatic free acrylic coating, which is designed for the protection of electronic circuits, is formulated without the use of hazardous aromatic solvents such as Toluene and Xylene. The coating is UL746-QMJU2 compliant, achieves flame retardancy to UL94 V-0 and meets IPC-CC-830 and MIL-1-46058C approvals. AFA is suitable for applications requiring rework and can be easily removed using Electrolube’s ULS cleaning solvents. Both spray and film-coat versions are offered.

The HTCX non-silicone paste is an enhanced version of HTC (the 'X' referring to 'Xtra' in terms of performance). The paste features improved thermal conductivity, lower oil bleed and lower evaporation weight loss. HTCX is recommended where the efficient and reliable thermal coupling of electrical and electronic components is required, or for application between any surface where thermal conductivity or heat dissipation is important, such as mounting studs of diodes, transistors, thyristors, heat sinks, silicon rectifiers and power resistors.

The LTC aromatic-free, low-temperature coating is a tough, flexible, modified synthetic rubber conformal coating. Designed for electronic circuit board protection, the coating features a low temperature property and low moisture vapour permeability, and offers mechanical and dielectric properties after high/low temperature cycling. The coating can be sprayed, dipped or brushed using manual spray guns and selective coating equipment, and contains a useful UV trace, which allows inspection of the PCB after coating to ensure complete and even coverage.

The ER2221 two-part epoxy resin is a high-temperature-resistant, thermally conductive, two-part potting and encapsulating compound. The resin features a superior thermal cycle system which makes it suitable for applications with operating temperatures ranging from -40 to +150°C. Flame retardant and RoHS-2 compliant, the EP305 offers high thermal conductivity and is suitable for applications requiring heat dissipation, while it can be cured at ambient temperature or at accelerated rates at higher temperatures.

The ER1455 chemical-resistant, two-part epoxy resin ensures high resistance to a wide variety of chemicals, including solvents and fuels. The resin offers a 100% reactive system, free from solvents or non-reactive diluents. Offering good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates, the ER1455 is RoHS-2 compliant and has a very wide operating temperature range of -50 to +150°C. The resin can be cured at ambient temperature or at accelerated rates at higher temperatures.

At the event, Electrolube also exhibited its UVCL UV curing conformal coating, ER2220 two-part epoxy encapsulation compound, UR5633 polyurethane resin and HTSP silicone heat transfer compound.
