Henkel’s low-pressure molding Macromelt technology portfolio has recently been expanded to include a material designed specifically for high thermal stability and chemical resistance. The product, Macromelt MM6208, has all of the benefits consistent with Macromelt technology, but has a high Relative Temperature Index (RTI) rating of 95° C, making it ideal for certain automotive, consumer and appliance applications, where a very high RTI rating is required for good thermal stability.
Many applications, which require high thermal stability have been limited to potting processes. Now, with the development of a high RTI Macromelt formula, these applications can benefit from the proven processability and performance benefits of Macromelt MM6208. “Assembly specialists that have stringent thermal requirements are now no longer limited to the often messy and time-consuming potting process for component protection,” explains Art Ackerman, Henkel Electronics Market Manager for Defense and Aerospace. “Not only does Macromelt MM6208 provide the thermal performance properties needed, but does so in a formula that streamlines the encapsulation process and protects even the finest-feature devices without risk of damage. This has the potential to dramatically improve assembly operations in several market sectors”, says Ackerman in conclusion.
