  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) EN-16

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      Mixed materials should be carefully poured into electrical/electronic units, devices, or molds to avoid any bubble or void entrapment. The material should then be cured at room temperature or elevated temperature as required.

    2. Mixing

      The components should be mixed thoroughly using metal, plastic, or glass stirrers. NOTE: Avoid paper cups and wooden stirrers!

    3. Deairing/Degassing

      For cosmetically clean and bubble-free castings, the mixed system should be degassed at 1 to 5mm Hg vacuum. Containers should be large enough to allow for frothing during degassing.
