Why Conformal Coat

Posted by Sean Horn on Tue, Jul 16, 2013 @ 11:59 AM

Printed circuit boards are extremely susceptible to a wide range of contaminants that can significantly damage or ruin them in a relatively short period of time. These contaminants include moisture, dust, and harmful chemicals. In addition, electronic circuits are also susceptible to extreme temperatures and environments.

What is a good thickness for acrylic conformal coating?

Posted by Sean Horn on Mon, Jan 07, 2013 @ 10:57 AM

Acrylic conformal coatings, such as MG Chemicals 419C and Humiseal 1B31 are a very popular conformal coating choice.  They are used primarily for moisture protection on printed circuit boards.  Often times, they are the cheapest conformal coating to apply because of their easy to use nature.  As a result of this, people try to apply acrylic conformal coating as a DIY project.  An issue that arises frequently is an improper thickness of coating, resulting in lackluster protection.

Conformal Coating Service: What to look for?

Posted by Sean Horn on Thu, Jun 28, 2012 @ 08:48 AM

After you have decided to outsource conformal coating, it is time to evaluate and decide on a vendor.  What criteria should you use to evaluate your potential vendors and how should you make a final decision?

One thing to consider is the coating house’s experience level.  Developing solid procedures and processes for conformal coating take time and experience.  Many new vendors claim to be able to apply conformal coating as well as the experienced guys, but fall short whenever they run into issues they do not have the experience to troubleshoot.  It will be tough to get referrals from your coating house, as a lot of times they are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.  A good way to evaluate their experience level would be to ask how many years they have been in business and their typical weekly, monthly, and yearly volumes processed.  A visit to their facility, if warranted by the volume of the project, should give a good indication of the seriousness of their abilities.
