Conformal Coatings

Enhanced protection for enhanced PCB performance

An Electrolube brand conformal coating product on printed circuit board undergoing UV cure.
  • UL, MIL and IPC-CC-830 approved
  • Solvent removable and solvent resistance coatings
  • Acrylic, Silicone, Polyurethane and Hybrid Materials
  • UV cure and water-based options available
  • UV trace to aid inspection
  • Thinners and masking products

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.

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.

TFCF  - Fluorocoat Surface Modifier

Fluorocoat Surface Modifier

250ml - 5 Litre

Product code: TFCF250 - TFCF05L

TFCF is a unique, fluorinated polymer coating formulated to provide high levels of liquid repellence to printed circuit boards and other electronic devices. Once dried, TFCF forms a thin transparent film of very low surface energy repelling hydrocarbon and silicone oils, synthetic oils and aqueous solutions. The low film strength allows assemblies to be coated without masking. As TFCF is mechanically weak, it is easily removed by minimal friction, therefore eliminating the requirement for masking components such as switches, piezo speaker devices and contacts prior to coating. TFCF can be sprayed, dipped or brushed, but it is not necessary to dilute TFCF before application. TFCF contains a UV trace to aid inspection and ensure an even coat has been applied. For full product details including test results please refer to the TDS below. If you still require further information please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Key Properties:
  • Thin film coating
  • Very low surface energy;
  • Excellent moisture resistance
  • Assemblies can be coated without masking
  • Coating is removed by light mechanical wear, ideal for connectors
  • Contains UV trace for easy inspection
  • Cost efficient
  • Fast Touch-dry time
