OverTec 5 FR is a polyamide resin specifically
designed for over-moulding. It has UL-VO
flammability rating and excellent electrical
properties. Components can be electrically
insulated and sealed from water without the need
of housing or the use of slow and wasteful 2-
component casting/potting resins. Overtec 5 FR
has excellent chemical resistance and thermal
durability, with an upper heat resistance of 135c,
and a lower temperature flexibility of -35c.
Overtec 5FR has good chemical and water
resistance, in addition to excellent electrical
resistance and dielectric strength.
The Overtec system is a low-pressure moulding
process that uses thermoplastic moulding resin to
achieve high quality sealing and protection of
components, faster than 2 component potting
resins and far lower capital cost than injection
moulding. Positioned between casting and injection
moulding technologies, this innovation allows
fragile or delicate components to be encapsulated
and protected with no risk of damage. The OverTec
5FR resin sticks simply need to be loaded into the
OverTec 820-15 glue gun and allowed to reach
operating temperature before use, resulting in a
simple and clean process with fast cycle times.
The most popular applications for the Overtec
moulding system are electronic component
encapsulation, connector potting, grommet
injection, automotive electronics, PCB
overmoulding, moulded connectors and sensors,
and many more. Also available in Amber.
