Five Reasons To Use A Conformal Coating Spray Booth To Apply Coating to circuits

spray gun in operationConformal coating batch spraying is one of the most widely used processes in low and medium volume production. Using the right equipment like a conformal coating spray booth is very important.

This is because:

  1. The spray booth is a low cost investment compared to most application methods
  2. The spray booth is relativley quick to set up and use
  3. The spraying process is very flexible, allowing easy processing of small batches with different conformal coatings
  4. The spray process gives the best finish of coating. It produce the perfect finish and causes less issues of thin tip coverage compared to other methods.
  5. The conformal coating spray booth is designed for coating application. It has built in features like a UV light which help the operator apply the best coating.

Why Inspecting Conformal Coatings Under UV Magnification Helps

UV Inspection lamp reduced sizeConformal coating inspection is one of the most critical aspects of the process. A good inspection process ensures the coated circuit is correctly coated or finds the faults in the process.

However, inspection is not an easy process. Operators can become tired and suffer from eye strain from constantly staring at coated boards under UV light.

One way to minimise this fatigue is to inspect under a UV lamp that also provides a small amount of magnification.

When this is in the range of 1.5x to 2x it can make all the difference to the operator and give more reproducible results.

10 Reasons To Use Parylene Coating for Circuit Board Protection

  1. True Conformal Coating. Parylene coating is completely conformal to the surface of the Circuit Board. This means that the coating has a uniform thickness and is pinhole free.
  2. Very Low Permeability. Parylene coating provides an excellent barrier that exhibits a very low permeability to moisture and gases. This means that products coating in parylene generally are more “waterproof” than the same products coated in a liquid conformal coating.
  3. Solvent Protection. Parylene is unaffected by solvents, has low bulk permeability and is hydrophobic.
  4. Salt Protection. Coatings easily pass a 100hr salt-spray test due to the homogeneous coating.
  5. Parylene has excellent electrical properties. These include low dielectric constant and loss with good high-frequency properties, good dielectric strength, and high bulk and surface resistance.
  6. 100% Clarity. Parylene is transparent and can be used to coat optical elements.
  7. Room Temperature Deposition. Parylene is unique in being created directly on the surface at room temperature. Room temperature formation means the conformal coating and the parts are effectively stress-free.
  8. Inert in nature. Parylene is chemically and biologically inert and stable and make excellent barrier material.
  9. Excellent Penetration. Parylene coating completely penetrates spaces as narrow 0.01mm (10 microns)
  10. Good Thermal Properties. Parylene has good thermal endurance. Parylene C performs in air without significant loss of physical properties for 10 years at 80°C and in the absence of oxygen to temperatures in excess of 200°C.

Five Reasons Why Conformal Coating Dipping can be One of the Most Effective Production Processes

Dipping a circuit board in coating can be highly effective. Here are five reasons why:

  1. You can dip many boards at once. It can be the fastest conformal coating process of all the methods.
  2. It is an extremely simple process. Hang the circuits, press a button and the boards are coated.
  3. The process is very repeatable. Once set up the conformal coating thickness will be constant with very few process controls.
  4. The conformal coating penetrates underneath components. This gives complete coverage.
  5. The boards are coated both sides simultaneously. This halves the process time.

Why is Parylene used for waterproofing circuit boards?

Parylene is a completely homogeneous coating. That means it is the same thickness all over the circuit.

This is achieved by the coating being applied as a vapour and the coating condensing onto the circuit board uniformly.

This uniformity of coating means that the water cannot easily come into contact with the circuit and cause shorts.

How did Diamond MT save 60% of their costs in conformal coating masking?

Diamond MT, a conformal coating and Parylene coating service provider found they saved  60% of their current costs by switching to the SCH range of conformal coating masking boots.

 Sean Horn, Diamond MT, explains how they did it…..

“We had initially wanted to try SCH’s conformal coating masking boots for price savings. However, once we began to work with Lee on our specific masking application, we realised that we could extend the life of our boots over 200%. We switched immediately!

We then realised the importance of working with someone who understands coatings. We will not being going back to our previous supplier.”
