Are You Making This Mistake When Evaluating Conformal Coating Costs?

Posted by Dan Griffin on May 23, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Picking a Conformal Coating

You and your organization have spent weeks or months researching conformal coatings to meet the demanding specifications of your customers. These can include factors such as dielectric strength, thermal and mechanical shock properties, processing considerations, and so on. At some point, the critical consideration of price and cost must be added to the equation. The amalgamation of cost and performance could be considered a measure of the true value of any specific coating.

Alternatives to Silicone Conformal Coatings Exist

Posted by Dan Griffin on Sep 19, 2018 7:00:00 AM

For many electronics manufacturers, the original justification for specifying a silicone coating is lost deep within the mists of time and it may be time for a re-evaluation and consideration of the question,

“Do we really need a silicone conformal coating?”

Humiseal® remains in a uniquely qualified position to help you answer this question. Unlike many coatings sources, Humiseal offers a full line of all the major conformal coating technologies including acrylics, urethanes, synthetic rubbers, water-borne, and yes; silicones. As a result, you can be certain of an unbiased approach to product evaluation that will result in the most cost-efficient material to meet your needs.

There are a number of factors to consider when evaluating your application to answer whether there is really a need for silicone technology:
