Choose from a variety of epoxy and polyurethane resin compounds for potting and encapsulation of radio frequency and wireless sensor applications. This includes automatic meter readers (AMR's), NFC devices, RFID tags, tire pressure management sensors (TPMS) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices that use the following protocols: Wifi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, and Z-Wave. Our potting compounds are used for devices that operate in the 433/868 MHz bands, such as security card readers. We also have materials for devices that operate from 1-3 GHz.
If you require RF transparency or optical clarity, we have clear compounds. These are useful in water and gas meter reading devices where you need to read a barcode. Low Tg (glass transition temperature) and low hardness formulations are suitable for outdoor applications where you need to protect electronics from harsh thermocycling conditions. Many of our potting materials are UL rated and certified for enhanced fire resistance.
If you do not see an epoxy or polyurethane that meets your needs, we can develop one for you. We custom formulate for shorter production runs as well as ongoing bulk supply to high-need manufacturers. We have decades of experience as a formulator and manufacturer of epoxy and polyurethane resins. Let us help you reduce your time to market and give you a consistent product to ensure smooth production.
