Masking Boots for Conformal Coating

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Mar 9, 2018

With proper equipment and professional expertise, liquid conformal coatings and vapor-applied parylene readily provide printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics a durable overlay of protective, insulative film; parylene’s CVD processes ensure the coating actually penetrates the substrate surface, generating further device security.

How to Mask for Conformal Coating

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

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:
