Krayden partnered with a global appliance manufacturer and leveraged the newly developed Humiseal UV13W to solve their humidity, vibration and run rate issues. The material delivered the right cure system, dielectric properties, had good adhesion and the needed run rate performance. The solution delivered both a UV cure AND a conformal coating. Since this material was used in the temperature control and display area, the customer vastly improved its quality related to battery holder corrosion/failures, ensuring improved run rates.
|What is the application?||Main temperature control and display on a commercial Refrigerator|
|What issues was the end user having?||Special protection against the Humidity and vibration on a battery holder, this was specialty used for it since they are Humiseal UV40 users and requested to be a UV Cure material to support their Run and rate demand.|
|What material was used to solve the issue?||This is a brand new developed Humiseal UV13W, which is a white pigment UV potting material, in this case, on the battery holder is to have full top covered against the humidity and salt fog test even the thermo cycling test.|
|Why was the material chosen for the application?||This was selected by the UV Cure system, then the right dielectric properties, good adhesion and performance.|
|Did the material improve the process?||Yes, based on the UV Cure system, it was compatible with the current UV40 application|
|If So, how?||Cure time and material compatibility, the formulation started with UV40 Gel, then they modifed the viscosity and added the White pigment to be a special application that came from another customer.|
|What industry/market was this material used in?||General Industrial or Automotive
|Was this material lower cost than other materials?||No, this product is more expensive than the RTV application they currently have (a Silicon RTV) but they accepted it because of the performance and UV Cure system compatibility.|
