How do I spray PCBs with coating without ruining the ESD board I am spraying onto and meeting ESD requirements?
There are several ways and no ideal solution. Basically, you can spray onto boards that are covered in paper or ESD bag material which will then earth to the turntable of the booth. Since the operator should be earthed via the ESD points or the floor then you creating good protection for the device.
However, it is important to change the material regularly since a build up of coating turns the material to an insulator fairly quickly!

About Dr Lee HitchensDr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
