Clear Encapsulating & Potting Epoxy Resin FAQs:
Which potting materials dry clear amber?
AeroMarine Products’ 300/11 Potting and Encapsulation Epoxy Resin cures in a clear amber color. A clear amber color allows you to view circuitry or any other components that are encapsulated or potted underneath. To ensure your epoxy potting compound dries clear, make sure you work in a moisture-free environment with a temperature around 65F and 75F. Humidity and moisture can cause blush which will need to be cleaned off and can cloud the color of epoxy as it cures, so make sure you’re working in a clean and humidity-controlled environment.
Why would I want clear potting compounds?
Clear amber potting compounds are often used with electrical applications because it allows one to visually inspect the components that lie within the potting compound. A light can also be shone to view the electrical components beneath the surface of the clear potting compound. With the ability to see the components beneath the clear epoxy potting compound, you’ll be able to see which wire is which, along with the various components of your electrical appliance, whether it is a circuit board, motor, or electrical panel.
Clear amber potting compounds are also commonly used for their aesthetic purposes. A clear potting compound will protect the electrical project you’re working on while preserving the look of your device, appliance, or circuitry. Wires won’t get tangled, parts won’t break or bend, and everything will stay in pristine condition.
If you have proprietary circuitry that needs to be concealed, our Dielectric 300/11 Epoxy Potting Compound comes in black to hide any sensitive electrical equipment.
Which clear potting compounds are also waterproof?
AeroMarine Products’ high performance epoxy is a clear potting compound that is also waterproof. Epoxy has a high bonding strength that, once cured, creates a waterproof sealant that will protect your electrical components even when they’re exposed to or submerged in water. Clear epoxy potting compounds make a great application for marine vessels, equipment, and electrical devices, as you’ll be able to create a waterproof sealant that you can see through.
