Latest encapsulation resins at Productronica India
Electrolube India will be exhibiting and presenting at Productronica India, the country’s premier electronics event showcasing the entire value chain for electronics production in India, from technologies and components to software and services. Productronica India has always been an important platform for global companies such as Electrolube, facilitating a presentation of their production technologies to India’s buoyant, fast growing electronics manufacturing segment.
Based in Bangalore, Electrolube India is currently one of the group’s fastest growing subsidiaries and operates as an independent local enterprise with sales, manufacturing and technical support.
Using key local knowledge, Electrolube’s Indian team has embarked on the development of the innovative new encapsulation resins, leveraging group technical support, and two of these will form part of the company’s exhibit at this year’s event.
Indeed, the Indian team have identified local customers’ requirements in terms of budgetary restraints and production methodologies, and created solutions to fit the brief. The first of these – ER6002 – is a two-part, thermally conductive epoxy encapsulation resin that is ideal for automotive applications, such as ignition control unit potting.
Developed as a strong competitor to existing locally manufactured, low-cost epoxy potting resins, ER6002 is a beige coloured, low viscosity (10,000cps) resin with good flowability and an exceptionally high thermal conductivity of 1W/mK. Mixed in a ratio of 9:1, the cured resin achieves a Shore D hardness of 50.
The second locally manufactured encapsulation resin to make its debut at Productronica India is SC4004, a low cost, two-part, thermally conductive, addition cure silicone. The advantage of an addition cure silicone is that reaction by-products are not released so the product can safely cure in a closed environment.
Low viscosity (12,000cps) SC4004 is mixed in a ratio of 1:1 and attains a Shore A hardness of 70 when fully cured. Thermal performance is excellent for a silicone in this products’ price range; in addition, the product features a wide operating temperature range (with excellent stability at high temperatures), good tolerance of thermal shock cycling and a high thermal conductivity of 1.1W/m K.
Manufactured in Bangalore, the new resin products, made from locally sourced materials, will carry a full ‘seal of approval’ from the UK parent company for quality and innovation that meet internationally recognised standards.
Looking forward to some challenging technical questions from visitors to the show, the full technical team will be on hand on the PA11 booth in Hall 3 with samples of these and many other products. Electrolube India is able to help at every stage of your electronic product development programme.
