New DOT Non-Corrosive Products From Copps
These new products are rated as non-corrosive by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Not only is this useful for the end application, but it simplifies the shipping process. The paperwork is easier, and the epoxies can be shipped through standard options like UPS, FedEx, and commercial air shipping without any non-standard shipping fees for hazardous products. In fact, these products are non-regulated.
As they’re rated as non-corrosive, these epoxy products don’t have to comply with non-standard material warehouse regulations and, therefore, can be stored with lower warehouse storage costs.
Crusher Backing Products
Our non-corrosive crusher backing products are free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), butyl glycidyl ether (BGE), and nonyl phenol2. In this product line, we provide the following options:
Machinery Grout Products
Our machinery grout products lend applications high levels of strength and vibration control. Choose from three options for simple, speedy filling, or filling deeper gaps in foundations or around machinery bases. All of the following machinery grout options are non-corrosive:
Our general-purpose, 1-1 epoxy adhesives are non-corrosive, making them safer to package, transport, and store. They can effectively bond wood, metal, glass, fiberglass, plastic, concrete, and ceramic tile.
Our new regular Armor Plate-Ceramic epoxy is a DOT-approved alternative to our standard option. This ceramic-filled epoxy system offers abrasion and corrosion resistance for high-wear applications.
We serve construction companies with non-corrosive epoxy products for superior adhesion. Our newest products provide a complete solution for repairing structural concrete while remaining VOC- and BGE-free. Customers can apply the following manually or by automatic injection:
Concrete Flooring Products
Our epoxy flooring products can help fill cracks, gaps, and holes to leave behind a smooth surface.

Electronic assemblies need to be protected from factors like vibration, shock, thermal dissipation, moisture, and corrosive agents. This protection can be achieved through a process called potting. Potting involves the process of filling an electronic assembly with a compound that provides permanent added protection to the assembly.
There are several potting compounds to choose from, each featuring different viscosities, cure condition requirements, and other characteristics. Urethane, silicone, and epoxy are all widely used compounds. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about epoxy potting compounds.
What are Epoxy Potting Compounds?
Potting compounds are essential for electronics assemblies, providing reliable and comprehensive protection against harsh environmental conditions. Epoxy potting compounds work well in high-temperature environments, provide great moisture resistance, and offer the highest degree of mechanical strength.
Epoxy potting compounds feature a high degree of rigidity, modulus, and tensile strength. Their excellent dielectric properties make them an optimal solution for potting electrical components such as switches or transformers.
Benefits and Applications of Epoxy Potting Compounds
Potting materials used in electronics applications are typically permanent protective solutions. They play a vital role in the long-term protection of electronic assemblies and provide many benefits, such as enhanced thermal management properties and abrasion protection. Other key benefits of epoxy potting compounds include:
- Chemical protection
- Corrosion protection
- Crack resistance
- Electrical insulation
- Enhanced mechanical strength
- Environmental protection
- Heat dissipation
- Vibration and thermal shock resistance
A key advantage of epoxy potting compounds is their excellent moisture resistance, which makes them especially suitable for outdoor applications. They also have excellent adhesion, high-temperature resistance, and chemical resistance. These characteristics have led them to be used widely throughout the aerospace, automotive, and consumer electronics industries. Common applications of epoxy potting compounds include:
- Circuit protection for oil and gas sensors
- IP protection
- PCB protection in commercial transportation
- Ruggedization for LED drivers
- Potting of transmitter components in deep-sea telecommunication cables
The low viscosity, self-leveling characteristics of many grades of epoxy compounds make them ideally suited for high-volume production applications and protecting fragile components. Several grades of epoxy potting compounds can be formulated to meet the specific requirements of different applications. These compound types range from very low to higher viscosities and feature different working times and other characteristics. For example, epoxy resins can be formulated to be thermally conductive, flame retardant, and curable at room temperature or high temperatures.
