Automotive lighting, both OEM and aftermarket, encompasses a broad spectrum of lighting including headlights, taillights, running lights, beacons and even spotlights. These lights are most often exposed to the full force of the elements on the exterior of the vehicle with little more than a plastic cover to shield them.

Product code: ER2221RP250G - ER2221K5K
ER2221 resin has been formulated as high temperature resistant and thermally conductive potting compound which retains excellent characteristics throughout thermal cycling. ER2221 is coloured black, while ER2222 is a red version, otherwise the cured resins do not differ in their physical properties. Both exhibit excellent thermal resistance up to an operating temperature of 150°C and have an enhanced thermal conductivity value in comparison to other encapsulants of 1.20W/m.K.
Both resin systems are filled, but the viscosity of the mixed system is low in comparison to other resins with a similar filler loading. This allows the mixed resin to be easily mixed and can flow between components and devices with limited spacing.
ER2221 is an excellent choice for encapsulating an electronic device which requires high levels of thermal resistance and protection such as automotive, aerospace, industrial or other applications which are subject to harsh environments.
