Evaluating Electrically Insulating Epoxies

Posted on 6/18/2015 8:56:28 AM By MasterBond

Epoxies are versatile polymer systems that are “go-to materials” for electrical, electronic and microelectronic systems, especially in applications where outstanding electrical insulation properties are needed. Their wide usage is due to their excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates, superb chemical and heat resistance and longterm durability. They are serviceable for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulating/potting applications.

The primary focus of this paper is twofold; the first is to discuss the electrical insulation properties as they pertain to epoxies. The other is to delve into the variation of these properties, based on the chemistry of the system (especially the role of the curing agent) as well as the operating conditions of the application.
