What are conformal coating masking boots and why are they used?

SCH India provides custom made, reusable masking boots to replace tape and dots in the conformal coating masking process for both Parylene and liquid conformal coating processes.

These boots are created as shields to be placed over the components that need to be protected. This replaces traditional masking materials like tapes.

The reusable boots are made of high quality silicone material that is compatible with the conformal coating process. This means that the boots can be used more than 200 times before replacement.

This fact of being able to recycle the masking boots has been proven to be a low cost, highly reliable solution.


Why use reusable conformal coating masking boots?

The use of other masking materials such as masking tapes, dots and liquid latex can be an effective process in protecting components from ingress of conformal coating.

However, the masking can be labour intensive, difficult and time consuming.

Recyclable masking boots offer a labour saving alternative in both the masking and de-masking stages of the coating process.

This saves you time and money.


Three reasons to change to masking boots

Here are three simple reasons that can save you up to 80% of your costs compared to masking tape:

  1. Masking time is reduced. Using masking boots can be 4-5 times quicker than masking tape.
  2. De-masking time is reduced. Again it is much quicker to remove boots.
  3. Masking boots don’t leak. So there is less repair after the coating process.

This means you can save a lot of money very quickly when switching to conformal coating masking boots.
