    Two batches of silicone potting have been identified by the supplier as having cure properties that were outside of the specified range. the potting material is used to insulate, stabilise and provide a moisture barrier to the main printed circuit board assembly (pcba) of the tps microdriver. inadequate curing of the silicone potting creates the possibility for silicone potting to leak outside of the handpiece and cause electrical malfunction.
