Kryptos-17™ Epoxy Resin Potting Material

Kryptos 17-A

For applications that require reliable operational protection in harsh environments, PCB potting material provides exceptional protection from aggressive environmental influences. Epoxy resin potting also offers vibration, chemical, and corrosion-resistance for electronic assembly protection. Kryptos-17™ is Plasma Ruggedized Solutions’ new, proprietary, two-part electronic potting material (2K resin systems). Formulated by our own chemical engineers, Kryptos-17™ is designed to deliver better overall properties than available “standard” epoxy resin potting materials.

Kryptos-17™ provides a better-finished product with greater reliability than other electronic potting materials. This state-of-the-art epoxy casting resin is designed to meet the physical security requirements of FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 140-3 for encapsulating materials. It is designed for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Kryptos-17™ Data Sheets and Technical Information

Tin Whisker Mitigation Benefits

Kryptos-17™ epoxy resin material inherently provides effective tin whisker mitigation. Tin whiskers can cause component electrical malfunctions and complete system failures. Growth of tin whiskers can result from environmental stresses such as plating chemistry or temperature cycling. While the cause of tin whiskers has not been established, there are ways of mitigating them, including epoxy resin potting. Epoxy resin material benefits include higher temperature resistance and a high level of protection for PCBs versus conformal coating protection.

Epoxy resin materials also provide very good resistance to water, salt spray, inorganic acids, bases, and most organic solvents. Kryptos-17™ exhibits good wetting and adhesion to most substrate surfaces and is free-flowing to penetrate voids and provide good air release for complete, uniform encapsulation.

Epoxy Resin Potting Material Applications

Epoxy resin potting materials offer protective benefits for a wide range of applications, including:
