Potting compounds are used for curing and encapsulation of electronics and electricals. They provide protection from moisture, chemicals, shock, voltage discharge, vibration, and physical damage. Epoxy resins are one of the best barrier protector resins, as they provide good adhesion and high temperature and chemical resistance. Another advantage of epoxy resins is that they adhere to a range of substrates without the need of primers. Similarly, other resins such as polyurethane and silicone resins provide high barrier protection, which make them ideal as potting compounds. These properties are driving the demand for potting compounds globally.

In this report, Technavio highlights the introduction of medical-grade potting compounds as one of the key trends to drive global potting compounds market:

Introduction of medical-grade potting compounds

Recently, manufacturers of potting compounds have launched a biocompatible epoxy adhesive, which is suitable for potting and encapsulation, for bonding temperature sensitive substrates. The chemical resistance of this adhesive is higher than other common cleaning agents that are used for medical devices such as isopropyl alcohol. The biocompatible adhesive is devoid of solvents and can be used for a range of substrates such as glass, ceramics, metals, polystyrene, and polyurethane. It also has a special heat-curing mechanism for "shadowed out" areas. This acts as an add-on to the current potting compounds.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research , “The biocompatible epoxy systems exhibit dimensional stability along with a low coefficient of thermal expansion, consistency, and impressive dielectric characteristics for potting or encapsulation. Thus, this trend is expected to drive the demand and innovation in the field of potting compounds.”
