The electrical components used in high g (500,000 g) telemetry packages will survive gun launchings only if potted in suitable materials. The materials considered for this application were: polyesters, epoxies, silicones, phenolics, and urethanes. The epoxy materials appeared to fulfill most of the requirements for this application. This report described epoxy materials, their curing, methods of potting, and the tests performed to select an epoxy material for embedding telemetry packages launched from hypervelocity guns in aeroballistic ranges.
