Silicone Protective Encapsulants and Coatings for Electronic Components and Circuits



Silicones are synthetic polymers based on a molecular structure of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms with organic groups also attached to all or some of the silicon atoms. Their general formula is [Ra SiO(4-a)/2]b where a = 1 to 3 andb ≥2. R represents an organic group.
