This silicone rubber boasts a variable cure schedule and high dielectric strength.

R-2188

R-2188 has a low viscosity.

"R-2188 has helped solve many of the packaging issues engineers are facing with the growing use of power electronics and the many designs currently on the market."

NuSil Technology LLC (http://www.nusil.com), a leading formulator and manufacturer of silicone compounds for the electronics industries, unveils R-2188, a solvent-free, two-part, translucent silicone system. R-2188 can be used as a compliant, high-strength adhesive and encapsulant in power electronics applications specifically requiring a highly insulative material.

R-2188 is a non-corrosive material with a low modulus that overcomes stress between materials with different Coefficients of Thermal Expansion (CTE). Due to its high dielectric strength, it can withstand medium and high voltage; thermal and mechanical stress; and long, elevated operating temperatures.

“R-2188 has helped solve many of the packaging issues engineers are facing with the growing use of power electronics and the many designs currently on the market. NuSil understands the need for long-term reliability and ease of processing to keep production costs low in the emerging energy markets, and we are proud to be a participant,” said Brian Nash, Vice President, Sales and Marketing.

R-2188 has a variable cure schedule, low shrinkage, and is easily repairable. It is effective in potting, encapsulating and coating modules, relays, power supplies, delay lines or complete electronic units, as well as a dip-coating for encapsulating components and printed circuit boards. A low-viscosity elastomer with a long work time, R-2188 is also suitable for automatic dispensing.
