New Opti-tec 7020 from Intertronics
Aug 14, 2006
Sometimes you need to be really clear about things - very transparent. Perhaps you need to view potted components or need true non-yellowing optical clarity for light transmission, while providing support and protection for potting of sensitive opto-electronic components such as LEDs, displays or solar panels.
The Opti-tec 7020 clear silicone potting compound from Intertronics provides these capabilities while also allowing circuitry to be viewed for inspection or rework purposes.
Opti-tec 7020 is a 2 part clear liquid silicone which will cure at room temperature or can be accelerated at increased temperatures. It features a non-yellowing catalyst system and a low viscosity which allows ease of flow around complex parts, providing electrical insulation and shock protection. When fully cured Opti-tec 7020 exhibits a refractive index of 1,406 and a thermal operating range of -60°C to +200°C.
Perhaps the clearest demonstration of Opti-tec 7020 is simply to try to spot which assembly has actually been potted - so clear is it that often a second look is needed! Further information regarding Intertronics' products can be found at www.intertronics.co.uk.
