JIT are excited to share a revolutionary new material in the world of silicone encapsulants for high pressure applications…


CHT SilSo SE2014 is a new, low specific gravity silicone designed to withstand high pressures.


Encapsulants used in high atmospheric pressure environments require the physical properties needed to resist the forces exerted upon the components and the elastomer used to encapsulate them.


If the material is too rigid and hard, it will transfer pressure to the component causing stress fractures and damage particularly to delicate electronics. On the other hand, if the elastomeric material is too soft, both the encapsulant and the components will distort under pressure causing failure through cracking or ingress of moisture or other contaminants. Therefore, there is a need to balance both the hardness and modulus of the material being selected.


CHT have formulated SilSo SE2014 specifically for these applications. Using specialist fillers resistant to high pressures, along with elastomeric silicone polymers, the resulting encapsulant protects against stress while remaining flexible enough to maintain contact with the components and enclosures.


Due to its unique fillers, it is resistant to withstand high under water pressure at 11,000 meters and 1000 bar making it a great material for water, blocking in under water cables. It is being used in umbilical cords found in deep sea submersibles, protecting the cables used for vital communications. It also has UL94-HB approval and a very low specific gravity making it an obvious choice for use in aerospace and aviation applications together with automotive electronics by reducing weight and providing cost savings. It is perfect for us in gas turbines, underground / subsurface electronics, high pressure test equipment, vacuum pumps and industrial cabling.


JIT are experts at delivering innovative solutions for complex and demanding applications, please contact us today to learn more about SilSo SE2014.

J.I.T. Industrial Products Ltd have worked in partnership with  Button-Fix and Parabond manufacturer DL Chemicals to establish a step by step guide to using Parabond FAST, a high bond polymer adhesive formulated for use with a wide range of construction materials to create a robust mounting for internal decorative high pressure laminate panels.

The process has undergone testing at DL Chemicals laboratories and used on Eurowall's installation in Santiago, Chile.


Using Button-Fix Type 1 Bonded with Parabond FAST allows high pressure laminate panels as thin as 6mm to be invisibly mounted with no visible screws or rivet fixings.

The J.I.T. adhesive application guide for interior high pressure laminate panels can be downloaded here.

Welcome Back - The Return to Work

Like most of you we hope to see greater easing of the lock-down restrictions and the safe return to work in the coming weeks & months.

JIT took the decision to remain open during the lock-down to support our Customers working in essential manufacturing and distribution.

As always, safety remains a top priority and as we have already been through the process of COVID-19 risk assessments and ensuring our facilities were suitably prepared, we wanted to share with you some of the resources we utilised in the hope if helps you with your planned return to work.

  • Consult guidelines - information available on government websites, World Health Organisation & HSE.
  • Risk Assessment - CIPD's COVID-19 template available here.
  • Workplace - organise work areas to ensure people can adhere to social distancing - section off areas using tapes, floor decals and provide signage throughout to serve as a reminder to keep 2 metres apart from others. Where 2 metre distancing cannot be adhered to, sectional screening may be used to create a physical barrier between people.
  • Hygiene - Provide adequate hand washing facilities with water, soap & paper towels and ensure hand sanitiser/wipes are available at multiple locations especially for those who are unable to access hand washing facilities - in vehicles/vans, warehouse etc.  Ensure cleaning & disinfectant materials are available for the regular cleaning of work stations & equipment/tools - especially if shared between operators.
  • PPE - Follow the HSE guidelines on suitable mask, gloves etc


We hope the above helps with your plans for a safe return to work.

Don't forget, JIT are here & fully operational to support you with your consumable requirements. Please keep us in mind if you have any requirements for tapes, adhesives, sealants, films, abrasives, cleaning & degreasing products or packaging.
