Tra-Con has announced the release of three new epoxies that are suited for use in casting applications such as potting, damming, filling, and encapsulation.

The Tra-Cast 3145 is a medium viscosity, thermal conductive, two-part epoxy adhesive that develops high-impact bonds at room temperature, which improves heat transfer while maintaining electrical insulation. It can be used for staking and setting transistors, diodes, resistors, ICs, and other heat-sensitive components in PCB applications.

Recommended for rigid potting, laminating, transformer encapsulating, filament winding, and coil embedding applications, the Tra-Cast 3143 combines low viscosity characteristic with fire retardant epoxy casting compound that is certified to the requirements of UL 94V-0.

The Tra-Cast 3103 low viscosity, two-part formulation is recommended for general purpose electrical potting and encapsulating application that requires a combination of mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. The company claims that the epoxy acts as an electrical insulator with good impact and thermal shock resistances.
