3 Key Properties of Acrylic Conformal Coating

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Aug 4, 2017

Conformal coatings made of acrylic resin (AR) are very popular, because of their distinctive beneficial properties. They protect printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics from corrosion, dirt, dust, fungus, moisture, and thermal shocks. Exceptionally user-friendly, liquid AR can be simply applied by brush, dip, or manual/robotic spray, generally resulting in the fastest turnaround-time

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.

All About Conformal Coatings

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jun 23, 2017

Conformal coatings insulate printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics; their protection increases devices’ tolerance to harsh environments.  The result is undisturbed function through a range of frequently harsh operating environments and performance conditions.  Conformal coatings provide these services for aerospace/defense, automotive, consumer, and medical devices.  They are a
