Ellsworth Adhesives Europe Launches Primerless Silicone Encapsulant


Reading time ( words)

Ellsworth Adhesives are now taking orders for the newly-launched Dowsil (Dow Corning) EI-2888 Primerless Silicone Encapsulant.

Dowsil EI-2888 is an optically clear encapsulant designed for professional LED lighting applications. The 100 percent silicone encapsulant provides LEDs with essential protection from moisture and surface contaminants. Dowsil EI-2888 has unique optimum rheological properties which allow it to be used with light fixtures in a variety of shapes and forms without compromising its superior optical performance.

A two-part protective material, Dowsil EI-2888 cures at room temperature with optional heat acceleration. It can be applied with automatic static or dynamic metered mixing, manual mixing or by flow, pour or needle dispensing equipment. The novel encapsulant is insensitive to inhibition and material reversion, a traditional problem for applications in enclosed spaces at high temperatures. EI-2888 is unlike any other silicone encapsulant on the market as its patented composition does not contain any platinum, making it a cost-effective and reliable choice. 

Dowsil EI-2888 is particularly suitable for encapsulating rigid and flexible circuit boards for indoor and outdoor LED’s, as well as explosion proof and high ingress protection rated luminaire. Made with advanced silicone technology, EI-2888 allows for primerless adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and is UL 94 compliant.

In Part 1 of this conversation, Sagi Reuven— business development manager at Mentor, a Siemens Business—makes the case that smart factory implementations must start with traditional process analysis and improvement before the data capture process is useful. He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."

"One of the biggest challenges for me selling is educating customers that they can generate oxygen and nitrogen on their own for up to 90% savings versus getting trucked in deliveries," said Mike Montesi of On Site Gas Systems. "It’s all about education because 98–99% of customers are used to the high cost of delivered gases, where we can separate it on-site with their own equipment, and the payback is typically under a year."
