Conformal Coating

*=required field

Techspray offers SR, AR and UR conformal coating formulas for a wide variety engineering requirements including thermal, moisture & static resistance. All coatings are IPC-CC-830B and UL94 V-0 qualified.

Techspray offers a variety of conformal coating formulas for differing field or engineering requirements and is IPC CC 830B and UL94-0 Qualified or rated. Specifications generally depend on the type of protection needed: e.g., thermal, moisture, or 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 to fluoresce the coated areas. The brighter the glow, the thicker the coating.

Application methods:

  • Dip – High volume method to fully coat boards. Thickness of the final coating is controlled by viscosity and withdrawal speed from the pot.
  • Conformal Coating Spray – Computer controlled selective spray systems eliminate the need for masking. Higher viscosity 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. The aerosol needs to be compatible with the original coating if it’s rework.

FAQ's

What is the difference between full cure and tack-free cure?

Full cure is when it meets all the final specifications. There might be some out-gassing, but it will be as hard as it is going to be, and adhesion is as good as it gets.  Tack-free is as the name suggests, not sticky so you can move it along the assembly process.

How can you reduce chemical exposure?

Every organization using hazardous chemicals within their facility has the responsibility to equip their facility and personnel to maintain exposure levels below the TLV. Personal monitoring badges can be used to measure exposure of a specific material. Then, depending on the threshold limit and the application, exposure can be controlled with PPE like masks, face shields, respirators, and even coveralls. If they don’t reduce exposure below the recommended limit, you will need to consider a special ventilation hood or even containment booth. As you can see, as the exposure limit gets down to a certain level, the equipment required to safely use the solvent can get impractical. At that point, your best option is to consider a safer alternative.

What is the difference between dielectric strength and dielectric withstand voltage?

The dielectric strength is material intrinsic property and withstand voltage is surface property which depend on thickness of the material. They can be slightly different for thicker materials, but for conformal coating, the two numbers should be very close or the same. That is because we test coating at 3-5 mils thickness, calculate, then report the value per mil.
