Last Updated: 15/12/2012

Potting Encapsulating:

Acrylic - Acrylic Sealants exhibit good adhesion to most surfaces and remains ductile in the presence of ultraviolet exposure and other weather conditions. Acrylic sealants are excellent general purpose materials which are used to many outdoor applications. After cure they can be painted.

Polysulfide - Polysulfide sealants are 100% solid materials available as one or two-part formulations. Polysulfides are very durable used primarily for the aerospace and window industries. These products have excellent resistance to all types of fuel.

Polyurethane - Polyurethane sealants are mostly one-part materials that show excellent adhesion and elongation. Polyurethane's are non-corrosive, paintable and very flexible. Polyurethane's will adhere to  most substrates, perform well under a wide temperature range and exhibit resistance to many chemicals and weathering.

Silicone - Silicone is the multi-purpose sealant that has the largest operating temperature range (-76 deg/F to 600 def/F). One-component silicone sealants cure to a touch rubbery solid when exposed to moisture in the air. Silicone sealants are excellent general-purpose sealants that have good resistance to weathering, vibration. moisture and ozone. Silicone sealants are generally very easy to extrude and handle with a wide range of dispensing equipment available.
