Ruggedization of Electronic Circuits? Encapsulation is One of The Best-kept Protection Secrets

Posted by Vlad David on Jul 12, 2018 12:00:00 PM

While conformal coatings increase the lifetime of electronic devices by providing a thin barrier that strengthens their ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions, adhesives and encapsulants provide a significantly higher level of protection on the entire assembly.

The most common properties of adhesives and encapsulants include:

  • creating environmental seals that protect against moisture and corrosion,
  • providing high-temperature resistance,
  • increasing shock and vibration dampening,
  • generating strong bonds to a variety of substrates,
  • maintaining low shrinkage, and
  • offering thermal conductivity.

Tired of Masking?  Try Selective Dip Coating

Posted by David Greenman on Feb 6, 2018 11:10:00 AM

When conventional coating methods such as hand spray, total dipping or robotic selective coating don’t provide the protection required, there is always selective dip coating.

What is selective dip conformal coating?

Selective dip coating is a process whereby the substrate rather than globally immerised in the coating, is discreetly coated in desired locales.  The technique in one form or another, has been around for over 25 years and is used with both classic solvent-based coatings and 100% UV cure conformal coatings.
