Ten reasons to use a Dip Coating System to apply conformal coating

  1. It is the fastest and most cost-effective conformal coating application technique compared to other methods such as robotic selective coating, batch spray coating and brush coating
  2. Dip Coating is one of the simplest processes for operators to use. Once set up the operation is generally very basic with minimal interaction from the operator.
  3. It is one of the most efficient methods for application of conformal coatings and there is no over spray or very little material wastage
  4. The process is excellent for all volume production whether large, medium or small.
  5. The process of dipping a circuit boards into a conformal coating material contained in a tank ensures complete coverage, including underneath components and around difficult large 3D boards
  6. The machines are very low technology based, so require very little skill in maintaining and servicing. They also tend to be the most reliable systems, providing very little downtime.
  7. It is extremely easy to control the thickness of the conformal coating using a dip coating method.
  8. The systems can have in-built drying and curing so the PCBs can be completed processed in one solution
  9. You can coat PCBs in a vertical, horizontal or off-angle orientation to provide the most efficient dip coating process
  10. The dip coating system can use practically any conformal coating in it, as long as the set up is correct and process controls are put in place.

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.
