What are the disadvantages of silicone potting compounds? Does it have any effect on electrical appliances?


Silicone potting adhesive is an environmentally friendly adhesive. This adhesive is cheap and widely used. It is an indispensable material in many electrical or electronic manufacturing processes. The reason why silicone potting compound is so widely used is because of its many advantages. But users can't ignore its shortcomings when using it, so as to make better use of it.

What are the disadvantages of silicone potting compounds?

The shortcomings of silicone potting glue are more obvious, that is, the mechanical strength is relatively poor, the bonding strength is moderate, and the bonding strength is not as good as that of epoxy resin potting glue. Users can lightly.

Silicone potting glue has obvious disadvantages. Will it affect it when used in electrical appliances?

Silicone potting adhesives are mainly used in outdoor power supplies, chargers or line lights, display screens and LED lamps, and can also be used in potting of electrical appliances, circuit boards, and components. The electrical appliances in these fields can still be used after repairing or replacing components if there is a problem. This is because the mechanical strength of the silicone potting compound is poor, and it can be easily broken apart without straining the electrical components. Therefore, it has no effect on electrical appliances, but it is an advantage.

What are the obvious benefits of silicone potting compounds?

Silicone potting glue is cheap, and after curing, it can achieve the characteristics of deep curing, excellent insulation performance, and can strengthen the insulation performance of electrical appliances after use.

In addition, silicone potting adhesive can also be divided into transparent color and non-transparent color. Although there are some differences in the appearance and color of the two, the fields of use are also very different. After the transparent encapsulant is cured, you can directly see the internal conditions of the electrical components, which is suitable for use in fields that require high light refraction. If the light requirements are not very strong, you can choose non-transparent potting glue.

There are three colors of non-transparent potting compound: black, gray and white. Not all products have such rich colors, and only big brands can guarantee this. Therefore, if it is a large-scale construction, it is necessary to cooperate with brands and products with good reputation, so that it is more assured to use.
