Conformal Coating Quality Standards

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Sep 15, 2017

Conformal coatings differ in their material-specific performance properties as protective films for electronic assemblies. Knowing the operational characteristics of various coating-types and their functional association with assembly components supports successful film application. Issues that confound conformal coating selection and application result from potential post-application problems lik

Conformal Coating Boots vs Tape: Making the Right Choice

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jan 27, 2017

Masking tapes and boots both protect components for a selected range of masking functions.  Choosing between the two is crucial to achieving optimal masking protection.  Conductivity needs to be maintained in all cases.  In addition, such operational factors as the:

Conformal Coating Specifications: Guidelines for Design, Selection and Application of Conformal Coatings

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Sep 2, 2016

Understanding the characteristics of various conformal coating types, and their interactions with the extreme range of products and materials to which they are applied, ensures optimal function, performance reliability and product-life.   Designers and users of conformal coatings should be aware of the properties of various types of conformal coatings and their interactions with the parts/materi
