Simple Steps to Ensure Proper Wetting & Good Adhesion

Have you ever seen your conformal coating separate or de-wet?  Have you observed the conformal coating to flake off after cure? The key to your success is understanding the relationship between surface energy (of the substrate) and surface tension (of the conformal coating).  There are some simple steps you can take to help ensure you possess a healthy balance of both.

What is a Wet Gauge and How to Measure Conformal Coating Thickness?

The application of the conformal coating in a uniform and consistent coverage is a key challenge that defines the reliability of the finished product.

A thin coating will provide inadequate protection against corrosion or insulation between conductors. Conversely, if the conformal coating is too thick, it will increase the risk of forming other types of coating defects such as bubbles,...
