Conformal Coating: Spray, Dip, or Brush?

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Sep 08, 2017 @ 08:22 AM

Operationally, conformal coatings are applied to the surface of PCBs and related electrical components, to insulate and protect them during use. Coatings improve PCBs’ performance under any circumstances, but are especially valuable for their functional tolerance to harsher working environments.

Conformal Coating Application Methods

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Sep 01, 2017 @ 07:37 AM

Application methods must first reflect the targeted substrate’s susceptibility to the coating material. Liquid coatings – acrylic, epoxy, silicone and urethane – each possess specific performance properties. Optimal protection and operational efficiency depend on

How to Setup a Conformal Coating Spray Operation

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jun 30, 2017 @ 08:00 AM

As the name suggests, spray coating is a method of application where the conformal coating is sprayed directly onto the printed circuit board (PCB).  It is typically applied manually in a spray booth or by aerosol, although it can be automated/robotic, for selective coating assignments.
