Sanitary and HVAC installations
Water, electricity and gas meters are necessary to control and measure the natural resources in our homes. Specific casting compounds that have to fulfil a range of special requirements are key to the development of modern meters.
Optimal adhesion to the meter housing is essential in order to prevent the penetration of moisture or foreign bodies in harsh environments. Superior flow characteristics are required to ensure trouble-free casting in meters with complex geometries. In addition, casting compounds shield valuable electronic intellectual property from prying eyes, providing reliable protection against counterfeiting.
The precision instrumentation and smart systems of modern electricity meters enable end-users’ electricity consumption to be read and calculated more easily and accurately via the grid infrastructure. Wevo’s casting compounds reliably protect sensitive circuitry and wireless modules in the meter against environmental conditions. Their flame-retardant properties provide reliable fire protection without blocking wireless signals.
