consists of a high quality epoxy resin applied by fluidised bed technique.
The coating finish is hard, smooth and has good appearance to harmonise with
other electronic components.
leads may be preformed to fit Printed Circuit Boards (PCB's) provided
certain precautions are observed. During preforming, the Resistor ends
should be grasped between thumb and forefinger. Examine the wire at the
Resistor body junction to ensure the coating is not cracked.
range of Resistors experience surface temperatures regularly in excess of
°C, the coating will tend to degrade slightly,
becoming 'coffee coloured'. Though unsightly,
performance is not compromised.
coating can reduce the rate of moisture ingress, it is not impervious to
