Rocky Hill, Conn.-based Henkel Corp. has introduced a silicone potting compound designed for electrical and electronic potting applications that require UL 94 VO compliance. Designed to ensure the integrity of electrical components by sealing against corrosion and outdoor contaminants, this low viscosity silicone offers strong adhesion to plastics and resists 85C/85% RH aging conditions.

According to Henkel, the Loctite SI 5640 Silicone Potting Compound is flame retardant when applied in thicknesses as low as 6 mm. Gelling in 5 minutes, the potting compound delivers high throughput in automated processes that require fast cure times.

The Loctite material is designed for use on outdoor electrical devices, such as wind turbines, solar panels/wiring, electrical meters and LED lighting.
