Using Conformal Coating to Prevent Reverse Engineering

Posted by Sean Horn on Tue, Aug 7, 2012

Conformal Coatings are used regularly in an attempt to cover technology designs on printed circuit boards (PCBs). Normally, this is done by using a pigmented (coloured) conformal coating which obscures the components below the conformal coating material.

We get a lot of requests from customers looking to keep their conformal coating an in-house process.  A lot goes into the conformal coating process, so it may be easy to overlook allThe coating room area should be clean and dust free since printed circuit boards are especially susceptible to particles sticking to the drying […]

Urethane conformal coating: When not to use

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jul 27, 2012

Urethane conformal coating is becoming an increasingly popular conformal coating choice.  However, it is not suitable for all applications.  Instances where the product is going into a high vibration environment or has a high heat requirement would not ideal candidates for urethane conformal coatings.
