The automotive industry is increasingly calling for electrical and electronic parts to be completely sealed against the environment. Numerous sensors, control units and other important components are now being fitted in locations on the vehicle where they are exposed to aggressive conditions. High temperatures and aggressive chemicals like automatic transmission fluids (ATFs) are commonplace, and many components also have to withstand high pressures.
One innovative and highly effective way to protect these components is vacuum impregnation with high performance resins.
In the seminar, Henkel’s Ricardo Szymanowski will introduce Loctite LIS and explain how this new and highly cost-effective process is used to seal and protect against leakages in hybrid plastics/metal parts. The impregnation solution prevents gaps opening up between metal and plastics elements in the parts that are caused by the different expansion rates of the materials.

The presentation will last 30 minutes, and will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A session.
