Techspray offers a variety of coating formulas to match field and engineering requirements. Specifications generally depend on the type of protection needed: e.g. thermal, moisture, and static resistance.
Coatings contain Opti/Scan (except LED Coating) to allow quality control inspection of coverage and evenness of the coating on a PCB. A coated board can be passed under a standard, low-cost UV (short-wave black) light, and the coated areas glow. The brighter the glow, the thicker the coating.
Application method considerations:
- Dip – High volume method to fully coat boards. Thickness of final coating is controlled by viscosity and withdrawal speed from the pot.
- Selective spray system – Computer controlled selective spray systems, eliminate the need for masking. Higher viscosity than full coverage sprayer is generally needed (70-200 cps) to create precise edge definition and prevent splattering.
- Manual Application – Aerosol and brushing are generally used for small production runs, rework and repair. If using for rework, the aerosol needs to be compatible with the original coating.
