Umicore Sealing 691 EL

Protection for technical precious metal surfaces

 

Umicore Sealing 691 EL is a perfect all-rounder to protect technical precious metal surfaces including electrical contacts. The coefficient of friction will be reduced enormously, the sliding performance of connectors will be improved, and even under strong mechanical stress, the functional layer is protected for much longer. In addition, Umicore Sealing 691 EL prevents tarnishing and discolouring. Silver surfaces treated with Umicore Sealing 691 EL as a final layer produce outstanding results in K2S tests.

There are no disadvantages in using Umicore Sealing 691 EL: Electrical characteristics are unchanged, and solderability and contact resistance are unaffected. In addition, Umicore Sealing 691 EL is easy to use: either in a simple dipping process or by electrolytic application for very short contact times in continuous lines. Finally, Umicore Sealing 691 EL is free of chromium and doesn’t contain environmentally harmful substances like CFCs, CHCs and HCs.

Your advantages:

  • Especially developed for technical components like electrical contacts
  • Very short treatment times, making it suitable for continuous lines
  • Long-lasting protection against tarnishing and discolouration
  • Easy to use, both electrolytic and dipping process
  • Free of components like CFCs, CHCs, HCs and chrome
  • No influence on colour or brightness of the finished coating
  • Increased sliding performance, reduced insertion force
  • Provides high reliability in K2S test, therefore a perfect protection for silver layers
Umicore Sealing 691 is designed for post-treatment in continuous lines.
