HumiSeal 2C51 Gains UL Approval

For Immediate Release

HumiSeal continues to strengthen its silicone portfolio of products by gaining UL94 approval for the new 2C51 – a dual purpose silicone conformal coating and potting material.

Recently announced, HumiSeal 2C51 has been specifically designed to overcome various challenges for both coating and potting of circuit boards. The Underwriters Laboratories recognition has been tailored to both application types.

HumiSeal 2C51 has gained a UL94 V0 rating with a conformal coating thickness of 2-8 mils (50-200µm). Furthermore, 2C51 is also recognized as a potting material for 95-375 mils (2415-9600 µm) with an HB rating.

2C51 is a two-part silicone with a simple 1:1 mix ratio. Its Autocatalytic cure will complete within 60 minutes at room temperature or can be accelerated by applying a slightly elevated temperature.    This is an environmentally friendly coating which has zero VOCs and is 100% solids upon mixing.    The cured 2C51 is a transparent film with slight blue tint visible at the higher thickness levels.

Keith Waryold (Vice President of Industrial Materials and Technology) said “Our UL recognized portfolio of products continues to be industry’s strongest and the most comprehensive. HumiSeal’s 2C51 will join many other products already under the UL recognition umbrella. We continue to invest in new product development and we stay committed to further our stronghold as the technology leader in electronic protection materials.”
