Protection of transformers, electrical machines
Featured Product from ELANTAS PDG, Inc.
Casting & Potting Materials
ELANTAS PDG, Inc. offers a wide range of high performance casting resins and potting resins.
Our 2-component casting and potting materials are based on epoxy, polyurethane, polybutadiene and silicone and are especially designed for areas in demanding electrical and electronic applications. Additional properties such as improved heat dissipation, much greater mechanical stability at high vibrational forces, noise reduction, and often the complete exclusion of environmental influences are required in these applications.
Our CONAP®, Conathane®, Conapoxy®, ELAN-Bond, ELAN-Cast®, ELAN-Tron®, Easypoxy® and Micares® brands guarantee optimum protection of light electrical and heavy electrical machines operating in challenging environments and cover a broad spectrum of mechanical, electrical and self-extinguishing properties. Our Conathane®, Conashield™, ELAN-Tron® and Bectron® product range is especially designed for the protection of electronic devices.
Many of our products are recognized according to UL 94 (and other UL standards such as 1446 and 746B). Some materials are additionally certified for the use in railway applications (EN 45545 or NF F 16-101).
Light Electrical Applications
The light electric sector includes essential parts for everyday consumer electrical goods. The applications cover the full range from low to high voltages, such as smaller transformers, lighting, home applications, automotive uses, smaller generators and motors (e.g. power tools and submersible pumps).
Heavy Electrical Applications
The heavy electric sector comprises larger devices that are often operated at medium to high voltages. Transformers used for power distribution and instruments belong to this sector. Switchgears, motors and generators are also considered part of this application field.
Electronic components and devices must meet high reliability demands in challenging environments, such as extreme temperatures, vibration or exposure to moisture or harsh chemicals. CONAP®, Conathane®, ELAN-Ton®and Bectron®potting materials provide highly effective protection of electronic components, such as PCBs, sensors, modules and transponders, etc.
