Abstract
THE PRESENT POTTING MATERIAL IN USE ON IMAGE INTENSIFIER TUBES, RTV-11 ALLOWS MOISTURE PENETRATION TO THE SURFACE OF THE TUBE ALLOWING EXCESSIVE LEAKAGE DURING HIGH HUMIDITY CONDITIONS. A TWO STAGE APPROACH IS PROPOSED INVOLVING THE APPLICATION OF A HIGH RESISTANCE, HYDROPHOBIC COATING TO THE SURFACE OF THE COMPONENTS. THE MODULE WILL THEN BE POTTED WITH A LOW MOISTURE ABSORPTION, HIGH INSULATION, LOW STRESS POTTING COMPOUNDS. COMMERCIAL MATERIALS WILL BE INVESTIGATED AS WELL AS ONE ESPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR THIS APPLICATION.
