We are in the design phase of a new project and were wondering if you could provide us with the estimated cost of conformal coating a PCB assembly?

The cost of actually applying the conformal coating to the assembly will vary greatly by application method and projected volumes. The material costs for the Conformal Coating itself are very low and will normally be less than £0.001 per square inch of board surface for a 25um dry film thickness. This may vary slightly dependent upon the Conformal Coating used and can be further reduced dependent upon your purchasing volumes.

Overall, the application of a quality Conformal Coating is the cheapest way to insure the long term reliability of your printed Circuit assemblies!

Contact SCH directly about Conformal Coating New Product Introduction and we will be happy to ensure you make the right choice on your material and process.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr 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.
