Nexus, the independent conformal coating information site, has been examining a new novel coating technique that may be able to exceed all of the environmental demands for circuit board protection and also be highly cost-effective. This new process is
Conformal coating masking boots saves money and time versus using masking tapes and dots. They reduce process time by up to 80% for masking and de-masking compared to tapes and dots. The masking boots improve quality of the conformal coating
I recently wrote an article in Nexus, the conformal coating website, that I thought would be of great value to our Indian customers. The topic is selecting a conformal coating and why it can be a real issue if you
Surface Modifiers are ultra thin nano coatings that are applied in the range of 0.1-2 microns in thickness. Traditional liquid conformal coatings are applied in the range of 25-75um so they are considerably thicker in nature. How do nano coatings work?
Cleaning of printed circuit board before conformal coating application helps but may not be essential. However, the cleanliness of the circuit can be crucial for both the short-term production process and the long-term reliability of the circuit. Why clean a
De-wetting is where the conformal coating material refuses to wet the surface that it has been applied to evenly. Factors that influence de-wetting usually involve non-ionic contamination such as: Residues from board manufacture including silicone surfactants from solder resist &
A conformal coating is a protective, non conductive, dielectric layer that is applied to a circuit board after assembly It protects the electronic circuit from damage due to the environment during the lifetime of its service. The damage can come from many
