FAQs about Overmolded Cable Assemblies

Can Galaxy provide UL ratings for overmolded products?

Yes, Galaxy can produce and provide UL rated overmolded products as long as all of the material used is UL approved.  If there is uncertainty about the need for UL ratings, please contact Galaxy to discuss.

Is using epoxy or potting compound the same as overmolding?

No, epoxy or potting compounds are applied to an assembly and must cure over time.  Epoxy or potting compounds are commonly used to environmentally seal a connector or backshell.  Overmolding a product does not always ensure that it will be environmentally sealed.
