  • Bespoke and ex-stock

Resin systems are designed to protect and insulate printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic components from the threats of harsh and challenging environments, including; moisture, vibration, thermal or physical shock and general contamination. By encapsulating the entire device, resins can form a complete barrier against such environments offering superior performance under extreme conditions.

Potting and encapsulation resins also offer excellent mechanical protection. Mechanical protection can be identified in a number of ways; superior performance is evident in applications involving prolonged exposure or immersion in harsh chemicals, or those exposed to vibrational, thermal or physical shock, for example. The higher level of protection is achieved through the mass of the resin surrounding the unit. This is different for every application however potting and encapsulating resins always provide a far more substantial covering than thatoffered by conformal coatings.

Due to the bulk of material surrounding the PCB, potting and encapsulation resins are commonly two-part systems which when mixed together form a solid, fully cured material, with no by-products. In cases where the conditions are not considered extreme, Electrolube offer a range of conformal coatings which provide a combination of protection in humid and corrosive environments with ease of application. They can be used for complete coverage or selective application onto the PCB, thus minimising the weight added as a result of applying a protective material.

SC3001 - Optically Clear Silicone Resin

SC3001
Optically Clear Silicone Resin

250g - 5KG - 25KG

Product code: SC3001RP250G - SC3001K5K - SC3001K25K


SC3001 is an optically clear silicone resin ideal for LED potting and encapsulation due to its clarity when cured and its resistance to UV light and yellowing.

Its a flexible two part resin system with a low viscosity making application easy and is particularly suited to applications where thin films are required due to its moisture cure nature.

It has a low hardness, so can be easily dug out if rework or repair is required and can operate in wide temperature ranges.


Key Properties:
  • Exceptionally wide temperature range
  • Optically clear :- high level of clarity
  • Offers exceptional protection for electronics
  • Its low viscosity is easy to apply even in thin film
  • Excellent resistance to yellowing
  • Good UV resistance
  • RoHS-2 Compliant
