TECHNOLOGIES

Efla shields electrical connections - especially in the most demanding environments

Combination of our injection molding technology, materials and electrical know-how in airfield ground lighting circuit create superior technology advantage for the industry. 

Encapsulation

EFLA encapsulation consists of low-pressure insert molding and high-pressure over-molding technologies. Combining these EFLA provides durable and hermetically sealed encapsulation for the most sensitive pcb`s, embedded cable assemblies, connectors, and variable power electronics components in the harsh and demanding underground electrical environment. EFLA molding technology provides

  • an excellent adhesion
  • high production throughput and cost competitiveness
  • constant quality of automated manufacturing process 

Molding is an ideal mess-free and high throughput alternative to conventional potting.

MATERIALS

EFLA works in close co-operation with leading thermoplastic material manufacturers to develop durable and safe products to demanding underground electrical applications. Products are combination of high-performance elastomers, other thermoplastics and tin-plated copper and brass, just to mention few. Material selection is based on:

  • electrical and mechanical properties
  • resistance to weathering 
  • UV-radiation and ozone exposure
  • chemical resistance
  • environmental impact  

Thermoplastic elastomers are modern engineering materials compared to thermoset rubbers due to reduced weight, sustainable manufacturing and 100% recycling. Efla has been processing thermoplastic elastomers for almost 30 years.
