Oh, please continue.There are a lot of different types of potting compounds. Some will hold in heat and that isn't good. Thermal epoxy will pull the heat away from the electronics keeping the led and driver cool, pulling the heat in the body of the light. Malkoff uses thermal epoxy. Cloud told me that potting can cause the heat to build up and act like an insulator trapping heat inside. Doesn't sound like thermal epoxy to me. I could say more, but I will leave it there.
I'd enjoy hearing how thermal potting isn't thermally conductive, and thermal epoxy actively "pulls" heat away from electronics🤣
