Polyurethane Conformal Coatings: When To Consider An Alternative

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Feb 7, 2020

Polyurethanes (Urethane Resin- UR) are polymeric, flexible, insulating, hard and chemically resistant (Acid—Alkali—Salty water) conformal coatings that are used to protect electronic parts from chemical corrosion, oil, moisture, fungus, and static discharges. Polyurethane coatings are supplied as single or two-component formulas. These coatings are suitable for printed circuit board applicatio

Conformal Coating Types: Acrylic, Urethane, Silicone, and Parylene

Used for aerospace. automotive, commercial, defense, industrial and medical applications, conformal coatings are applied in film layers generally 30-130 microns (micrometers/μm) thick, or 0.0012-0.0051 inches (“). Conformal films’ exceptional thinness is their greatest asset. Coatings safeguard printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics from performance malfunction generated by unw

Military Conformal Coatings: Acrylic vs Urethane vs Parylene

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Nov 24, 2017

Conformal Coatings For Military Electronics Military electronics need to operate without fail under conditions of extreme duress. The role of conformal coatings — acrylic, urethane, and parylene — as protective insulators of the printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies that guide automated military systems is well-documented, and continually under review to develop enhanced performance p
