EPP-918A Protective Sealant

EPP-918A Environmental Protectant
Ruggedized Modular Connectors for Harsh Environments
Stewart’s EPP-918A protectant improves product reliability by providing an unprecedented
level of defense against harsh environmental conditions. In addition to providing superior
moisture, humidity, and corrosion reistance, EPP-918A also shields against wear due to
repetitive mating/unmating forces. By guarding contacts with our patented protective coating,
EPP-918A prolongs the life of contacts within RJ11 and RJ45 jacks despite exposure to
extreme environmental conditions. Once applied (during the manufacturing process), EPP918A will not migrate — it adheres to contacts instantly and remains intact without the need
for additional tape, mechanical barriers, or cure time. This characteristic eliminates the added
expense that other barrier methods often entail.
EPP-918A environmental protectant can be used with virtually any Stewart connector product
to increase durability and reliability.
