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 […]

Available in five basic material types, conformal coatings can be readily adapted as protective, insulating films for electronics. However, there can be some confusion about which type is best-suited for a specific use. Clearly defining the performance parameters for the component[s] to-be-coated helps coordinate the conformal film material with a unit’s functional requirements. Accurate assessm

Conformal Coatings for Electronics

Withstanding such complications to the operational environment as corrosion, fungus, oxidation, rain, salt water/mist, snow, temperature fluctuations or vibration is essential to long-term performance of electronic devices. Without suitable protection, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics will not survive harsh environments, and malfunction. Prominent examples include:
