(100 parts to 20 parts by volume)

Huntsman Araldite presents this isocyanate free, epoxy-based encapsulation, impregnation and filling system suitable for manipulation and cured at room temperature. Mechanically resistant multi-purpose system, available in various colors, suitable for devices exposed to thermal shock and vibration, CW 2250-1 / HY 2251 is available in various colours.

What is encapsulation?
A resin enclosure system to protect electronic devices from external influences (humidity, dust, vibrations, shock), allowing the sending and receiving of signals and improving handling and assembly.

Typical Applications

  • Transformers
  • Filters
  • Capacitors
  • PCB boards
  • Controls
  • Modules
  • etc.

Curing: The curing time is about 24 hours at room temperature, although it can be accelerated by applying heat. In highly exposed systems, temperature postcuring is recommended.



It is recommended to thoroughly homogenize the entire contents of the container before use and to remove it from time to time to avoid sedimentation and possible curing and dosing problems.


To facilitate mixing it is recommended to heat the resin at 40-50 ° C before mixing with the hardener and to improve the dielectric properties a brief degassing under vacuum at a pressure of 5-10 mbar.

Storage conditions

Store the components in a dry place and in their original closed containers.
