New Primerless Silicone Encapsulant Provides LEDs with Outstanding Optical Clarity

Ellsworth Adhesives Europe are now taking orders for Dow’s new Dowsil™ Ei-2888 Primerless Silicone Encapsulant. Designed for professional LED lighting applications, Dowsil™ EI-2888 Primerless Silicone Encapsulant is a two-part material which cures at room temperature. The optically clear encapsulant provides LEDs with essential protection from moisture and surface contaminants

Dowsil EI-2888 is an optically clear encapsulant designed for professional LED lighting applications. The 100 percent silicone encapsulant provides LEDs with essential protection from moisture and surface contaminants. Dow’s Dowsil™ EI-2888 has unique optimum rheological properties which allow it to be used with light fixtures in a variety of shapes and forms without compromising its superior optical performance.

A two-part protective material, Dowsil™ EI-2888 cures at room temperature with optional heat acceleration. It can be applied with automatic static or dynamic metered mixing, manual mixing or by flow, pour or needle dispensing equipment. The novel encapsulant is insensitive to inhibition and material reversion, a traditional problem for applications in enclosed spaces at high temperatures. EI-2888 is unlike any other silicone encapsulant on the market as its patented composition does not contain any platinum, making it a cost-effective and reliable choice.

Dowsil™ EI-2888 is particularly suitable for encapsulating rigid and flexible circuit boards for indoor and outdoor LEDs, as well as explosion proof and high ingress protection rated luminaire. Made with advanced silicone technology, EI-2888 allows for primerless adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and is UL 94 compliant.

Ellsworth Adhesives Europe is an official supplier of Dow Performance Silicones. To enquire about this new DOWSIL product or any other products in our range please contact: infoeurope@ellsworth.com .
