EPP-918A Environmental Protectant

Stewart Connector's EPP-918A protective compound improves product reliability by providing an unprecedented level of defense against harsh environmental conditions. In addition to providing superior moisture, humidity, and corrosion resistance, EPP-918A also shields against wear caused by repetitive mating/unmating forces.

EPP-918A guards and prolongs the life of contacts within RJ11 and RJ45 jacks despite exposure to extreme environmental conditions. Once applied (during the manufacturing process), EPP-918A will not migrate - it adheres to contacts instantly and remains intact without the need for additional tape, mechanical barriers, or cure time, eliminating the added expenses other barrier methods often entail. EPP-918A environmental protective compound can be used with virtually any Stewart Connector connector product to increase durability and reliability.
