Is the argon blanket an important option for the DS101?
The argon blanket is a useful accessory for overlaying conformal coatings that are sensitive to moisture such as moisture cure silicones like Dow Corning 2577. The principle is the argon gas is heavier than air and using a series of valves a blanket of argon gas is bled over the conformal coating tank, effectively trapping the solvents under the argon. This is also effective in regions of high humidity and can help prevent moisture ingress.
