Silicones, typically, are heat-resistant and are generally in a semi-liquid form with rubber-like properties that make them idea for use in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, as well as thermal and electrical insulation. The choice to use silicone versus other products is recommended and based on silicone providing a longer lasting, higher quality finish. Essex Brownell offers a wide variety of silicone products that include adhesives and sealants as well as conformal coasting, thermal management solutions, mold making products, silicone fluids, gels, encapsulants, kits, among others. Our solutions experts often recommend the trusted DowSil brand (formerly Dow Corning) from Dow. Simply stated, adhesives are dispensable substances that can bond two things together while sealants are dispensable substances that forms and environmental seal between surfaces. Conformal coatings are a thin layer of protective substances that takes the shape of what it is applied to. Encapsulants or pottants are protective coatings that add dielectric and tensile strength to devices or wiring. There are multiple options for both encapsulates and pottants in silicone, varnish or resin and it is best to discuss the project with an Essex Brownell solutions expert. We feature many Dow products as well as both electrically and thermally conductive product solutions and a discussion with our team will lead to the best choice for your application.
