Sealing, gluing, potting – perfect protection for electronics!

In electronics-based industries such as automotive and machine construction, in lighting and household appliances, ever more high-performance electronics are employed.

These high-sensitivity electronic parts are exposed to especial stresses through damp, dust and other environmental media, including, in outdoor areas, the weather. Sonderhoff has products to reduce all these: Electronics potting with FERMADUR®, housing seals with FERMAPOR® K31 or gluing of plastic and metal electronics housings with FERMAGLUE®.

Housing foam seals and electronics potting also reduce vibration.  The effects of dramatic temperature fluctuation on parts are moderated.

For example, in engine construction, housing seals for electronic parts must be designed for a temperature range of −40°C to +160°C. Silicone foam seals such as FERMASIL® are most often used in this situation, as they resist such temperatures. For other uses in the interior, a temperature range of −40°C to 85°C is required. Sonderhoff’s foam seals, gluing- and potting products are specially designed for this.
