Electrolube, the global manufacturer at the forefront of electro-chemicals technology, has launched a new silicone resin product for the European LED market that has grown to become one of the company’s most successful products ever sold in China and Australia. SC3001 is an optically clear and flexible two-part encapsulation compound that has been specifically designed to meet a wide array of challenges facing the LED industry. It helps to protect and insulate components from the threats of harsh and challenging environments including moisture and general contamination. The new resin provides a complete barrier against such environments whilst still providing outstanding performance.
SC3001 features a number of benefits over its competitors including low viscosity, excellent electrical properties and flexibility. The new resin exhibits excellent resistance to water and a wide variety of chemicals, therefore providing the highest protection in a range of environments. SC3001 is RoHS compliant and is particularly suited to applications where thin films are required due to its moisture cure nature. It also remains flexible over an exceptionally wide temperature range of -60 to +200°C.
With offices in Brazil, China, Australia, North America, Germany and France, the electro-chemicals manufacturer expects to see continued growth of products developed specifically for LED applications. These include TFA, a UL approved Toluene Free Acrylic conformal coating designed to protect LEDs against humidity and environmental attack, and the optically clear, semi-rigid UR5562 resin for potting LEDs, a high performance polyurethane resin.
