Electrolube's product offering contains a number of successful products developed to meet specific customer needs:
The user in question (a large manufacturer of power distribution electronics) initially expressed an interest in Electrolube’s surface modifier materials due to longstanding and unresolved issues relating to coating coverage and connectivity. Their rationale for using a surface modifier coating as opposed to a conventional conformal coating was correct as the combination of required coating thickness (2µm) and very low film strength (abrasion resistance) can facilitate huge processing benefits.
Electrolube's current surface modifiers did not quite match all of the customer requirements, so FPC was specially developed for the customer.
FPC solved all the issues that the customer was having with the competitor product as well as providing several other benefits that the customer had not considered such as a UV trace to aid inspection and UL94 flame retardancy.
Customer was looking for a protection solution to pot domed shaped sensors within a car park floor. The sensors needed a heavy-duty solution to endure cars driving over them and be resistant to temperature extremes and water ingress, but also allow effective RF communication, whereby the signal can travel through the resin.
The Electrolube team recommended UR5118 polyurethane resin, which has excellent adhesion, low relative permittivity for good signal transmission and low viscosity of 2300@ 23°C which ensures sufficient flow in small gaps. With a shore hardness of A80, the UR5118 is gentle to more delicate components whilst providing good impact resistance.
The unit was tested with the UR5118 resin and passed all tests.
A manufacturer of green energy plants required a thermal management material for wind turbines. Electrolube products had built up a worthy reputation within the industry for performance and reliability, however the customer was looking for a more environmentally friendly product than was currently on the market.
The Electrolube R&D team developed a specialist version of HTCX in order to meet these demands. HTCX_ZF is a Zinc Oxide free thermal management material which offers the same levels of performance while minimising the hazardous elements.
