Enhanced protection for enhanced PCB performance
Conformal coatings are designed to protect printed circuit boards and related equipment from their environment. Typically applied at 25-75μm, these coatings ‘conform’ to the contours of the board allowing for excellent protection and coverage, ultimately extending the working life of the PCB.More info > Download product selector chart > Download product brochure >
Electrolube is among the world’s foremost experts in the formulation and application of conformal coatings designed to meet international approvals (including European and American military specifications). The range of products currently available comprises acrylics, silicones, polyurethanes, hybrid chemistries and environmentally friendly options.
Electrolube can offer both transparent and pigmented coatings to improve or camouflage the appearance of printed circuit boards. The range also includes a number of ancillary products to complement the use of our conformal coatings, including thinners and removers, peelable coating masks and thixotropic materials for dam and fill applications.
Electrolubes Conformal Coatings Technical Director Phil Kinner recently wrote a micro e-book on conformal coatings for harsh environments. It’s a great little insight into the selection, implementation and testing of protective coating process.
Product code: FPC05L
FPC is a specialist ultra-thin fluorinated polymer coating which repels hydrocarbon and silicone oils, synthetic fluids and aqueous solutions, (due to its very low surface energy). Consequently, this product offers superb protection for printed circuit boards and electronics in exposed environments.
When dry, FPC has a low film strength and is therefore easily removed by minimal friction allowing assemblies to be coated without masking. This coating is applied using specialist equipment and also offers an exceptionally fast touch dry time.
Rather unusually, (for this sort of coating), FPC also comes with a UV trace aiding inspection and is UL746 approved.
