The modern vehicle has as many sensors on than a cold war jet fighter, monitoring everything from the obvious (eg. tyre pressures), to the things most drivers wouldn’t even consider (running speed of the engine). These sensors are exposed to a wide array of different conditions including some of the most hostile conditions (fuel sensors). It takes then, specialist materials in order to protect the device and maintain optimum operation. Electrolube has the bespoke solution for you.More info >

Product code: UR5123RP250G - 250G UR5123K5K - 5Kg
UR5123 is a polyurethane potting compound which has been formulated for the specialist protection of units operating in extreme environments such as military, aerospace and automotive electronics. It is an ultra-high performance resin, offering excellent characteristics as well as toughness and tear resistance.
UR5123 is thixotropic allowing the resin flow to be controlled and for more accurate placement. It is designed not to flow through small diameter (1-2mm) holes in PCB's and casings. It also has a low moisture sensitivity allowing for excellent surface cure. Once cured it has very good adhesion to most substrates, and it maintains flexibility to protect delicate components even to temperatures as low as -60°C, while its upper operating temperature is 130°C.
UR5123 is also an ideal choice for marine applications where the electronics will be exposed to fresh or sea water, or even completely submerged as it has a low water absorption and high resistance to water.
