How much will my potting project cost me?

The cost is tricky to calculate without trialling. It will be based on two factors:

  1. Cost of the actual encapsulation material. This is based on how much you will use and the volume of material you buy per batch as this sort of material highly prices sensitive to volume.
  2. Cost of labour. If it’s a simple job its easy and low cost. If its complex then it can be more expensive.

Ultimately, you need to trial.

If you have a sample you can test on and can then determine a fixed price based on volumes you estimate.
If you would like to check out your potting costs then let us trial our materials with you.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
