Unpacking the Rising Popularity of LED Curable Conformal Coatings

Posted by Dan Griffin on Dec 7, 2022 6:28:13 PM

The transition to LED curable conformal coatings is beginning to build momentum, beginning as a slow evolution and developing into a revolution of sorts. The driving forces behind this include: 

  • Improved processing equipment designs and availability 
  • Aging or outdated application equipment replacements 
  • Increasing range of LED curables commercially available or in development 
  • Rising labor, equipment, and energy costs  

If you and your organization are faced with aging equipment and higher costs, there isn't a better time to consider the potential advantages of LED curable conformal coatings

Advantages & Characteristics of LED Curable Conformal Coatings

Posted by Dan Griffin on Sep 3, 2020 2:00:00 PM

UV curable conformal coatings have attained widespread use in applications requiring fast through-put times, such as automotive, white goods, and industrial control manufacturing. In addition to speed of cure, UV curable conformal coatings provide the advantage of high physical protection and chemical resistance for electronic systems. Traditionally the UV curing of coatings is an energy intensive process. One that uses high-power mercury discharge lamps, which as a result of use produce considerable amounts of heat and ozone. The recent introduction of new, high-output LED UVA light units allows for the successful cure of conformal coatings by using between 365nm and 395nm wavelength of UVA light, effectively curing with minimal heat and no ozone generation.
