How to deal with metal parts before silicone encapsulation?

The processing process before the silicone coating of metal parts is a rigorous and meticulous process, which is directly related to the quality, durability and service life of the final product.
In order to ensure that the silicone can be firmly and evenly attached to the surface of the metal, we need to carry out a series of treatments on the metal before the coating.
First of all, the surface cleaning of metal parts is a crucial step, metal parts in the production, transportation and storage process, it will inevitably be contaminated with various oil, dust and impurities.
These pollutants will not only affect the adhesion effect of silicone, but also may lead to defects in the coated product.
Clean metal surfaces thoroughly to remove oil, dust, rust and other contaminants.

You can use degreaser, ultrasonic cleaning or steam cleaning.
During the cleaning process, it is necessary to ensure that the cleaning agent will not chemically react with the metal parts, so as not to cause damage to the metal parts.
Secondly, it is also necessary to carry out appropriate rough treatment on the surface of metal parts.
The surface smoothness of metal parts is too high, which will cause the silicone to be difficult to attach.
Therefore, we need to use sandpaper or grinding wheel to slightly polish the metal surface to increase the surface roughness and thus improve the bonding strength.
Be careful not to over-polish.
This can not only improve the adhesion of silicone and metal parts, but also make the product more beautiful after the coating.

The processing process before the silicone encapsulation of metal parts is a rigorous and meticulous process.

Next, the chemical process.
According to the material of the metal parts and the characteristics of the silica gel, the use of chemical treatment agents, such as phosphate, chromate or other metal surface treatment agents to improve the bonding performance of the metal surface.
We may need to treat metal parts with specific chemicals.
For example, for some aluminum alloy materials, we may need to anodize to increase the thickness of the oxide film on its surface, thereby improving the adhesion of the silica gel.
This step needs to be selected and operated according to the specific situation to ensure the best treatment effect.
After completing the above surface treatment, we also need to choose the right adhesive.
The choice of adhesive directly affects the bonding strength of silicone and metal parts.

We need to choose the appropriate adhesive according to the type of silicone, the material of metal parts and the use of environment and other factors.
At the same time, the application method of the adhesive also needs to be paid attention to, to ensure that the application is uniform, no bubbles, and to avoid leakage or uneven thickness.
In addition, before the silicone encapsulation, we also need to pre-treat the silicone.
This includes steps such as mixing, stirring and venting the silicone.
Ensure that the mixture of silicone is uniform, no bubbles and impurities, which can improve the quality and stability of the product after the coating.

Finally, it is the preparation and debugging of the mold.
The accuracy and sealing of the mold have an important impact on the effect of the silicone adhesive.
Therefore, we need to prepare the mold in advance, and clean, debug and check it.
To ensure that the accuracy and sealing of the mold meet the requirements, you can avoid problems such as silica gel leakage or poor molding during the process of encapsulation.
To sum up, the treatment process before silicone encapsulation of metal parts is a complex process.
Only by ensuring that every step is carried out in accordance with the requirements can we ensure the quality of the final product.
Therefore, before we carry out silicone encapsulation, we need to fully understand and master the relevant processing technology and operating methods to ensure the smooth progress of the production process and the stability and reliability of product quality.
