Best Electronics Coatings

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Nov 17, 2017

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

Failures of PCBs and similar electronic assemblies can occur despite the protection of conformal coating. Contributing reasons include:

Conformal Coating for PCB’s

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jul 21, 2017

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) electrically connect and power all but the simplest electronic products.  To function as designed, PCBs and their components – capacitors, resistors, etc. – require protection against operating problems caused by corrosive liquids, dust, physical shock, temperature extremes and, in the case of medical implants, bodily fluids.  Conformal coatings are applied over
