by encapsulating [embedding] it
Explanation:
Per Siemens, Energie- und Automatisierungstechnik:
Vergießen n (Einbetten)
embedding n
Vergießen (Isolierstoff)
encapsulating n

Another possibility might be "potting" [Wittfoht]; however, potting is very specific: As opposed to embedding and encapsulating the mould is a container which remains attached to the potted article; if the mould is metallic, it provides electrical screening (Abschirmung) for the potted article.
