Is Conformal Coating Necessary for PCBs?

Posted by Sean Horn on Mon, Mar 15, 2021

When you rely on printed circuit boards (PCBs), you want to protect them from danger and extend their life spans. Conformal coating PCBs does just that, giving PCBs the protection they need to last a long time and work as intended. Utilizing conformal coating for your PCBs comes with many advantages, while not using it […]

IoT (Internet of Things) & Parylene Conformal Coatings

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Nov 27, 2020

The Internet of things (IoT) allows us to connect everyday things to the internet. It is defined as a network of devices, vehicles, appliances, and other things that are connected. IoT is possible with the use of sensors, actuators, electronics, and software embedded into the later. Data collected from these physical devices are sent back […]

How to Mask for Conformal Coating

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jan 12, 2018

Liquid conformal coatings provide inexpensive, easily-applied insulative protection for printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics. However, the films’ otherwise desirable insulative qualities can interfere with operation of the assemblies’ electrical components, items like capacitors, connectors, diodes, resistors, or transistors, if these are coated. Liquid coatings are designed t
