Encapsulation & Display

Encapsulation & Display

Some Smooth-On silicone rubbers, urethane rubbers, urethane liquid plastics and epoxy resins are used for specific encapsulation and display applications depending on the project. Each material has performance properties (such as optically clear or electrically insulative) that make it suitable for an encapsulation application above all others.

Smooth-On also manufactures silicone rubber material designed specifically for solar cell encapsulation. Our Tarbender® High Gloss Epoxy Coating is excellent for creating bar-tops, encapsulating 3-D objects or coating flat objects, paper and more.

Which encapsulation liquid is right for your project? Contact us. We'll do our best to match the right material to your application.
