How much will my potting project cost me?

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

  1. Cost of the actual encapsulation material. This is based upon how much you will use and the volume of material you buy per batch as this sort of material is highly price sensitive to volume.
  2. Cost of labour. If its 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 upon volumes you estimate.

What is an epoxy potting compound?

An epoxy potting compound (encapsulate) is a material used to encase a printed circuit board and protect it from environmental exposure to  impact, shock, vibration, heat, conductivity, moisture, chemicals.  Some products are pigmented and are used to hide the circuitry from inspection and so add security to a device. The material is based upon an epoxy resin which can be made of one, two or three part components (two and three part products need to be mixed together) which when cured produce a protective shell.

Different Epoxy Potting Compounds for different Electronic Protection Processes: What do you need to protect?

The range of applications for epoxy potting compounds is enormous. The use of the encapsulates includes protection of sensitive electronic components from water (waterproofing), impact, shock, vibration, heat, conductivity, moisture, chemicals and identity theft. Some products are pigmented to hide the circuitry and others are translucent to allow visual inspection.

Included in this mix is are epoxies that are flame retardant materials and qualified to UL, thermally conductive epoxies designed to release heat from a circuit board and high temperature compounds which ensures products can be protected where temperature is critical.

If you have a requirement for protecting your electronic circuits from extremely harsh environments then epoxy encapsulates could be your solution.
