What information do I need to provide to get a conformal coating quotation for subcontract service?

When deciding to look at outsourcing your conformal coating process there are fundamental questions you need to answer and information to be provided to allow us to provide an accurate quote.

Questions to be answered include:

  1. Do you require the circuit boards to be cleaned or is this a no clean process?
  2. What are your expected volumes of PCBs to be processed?
  3. What turnaround time do you require on the service?
  4. What conformal coating material do you want applied?
  5. Do you have photos and /or masking drawings of the PCBs?
  6. How big are the PCBs for costing purposes?
  7. Do you have a particular coating process you prefer to be used?
  8. Do you have any masking requirements before coating application?
  9. What conformal coating standards do you require the PCBs to be inspected to?
  10. Are there any materials on the PCB such as silicone RTV that can cause problems when processing?
  11. Are there any special requirements?

These are the basic questions and each of them will lead to further questions. As with many projects, many answers are unknown and SCH can help develop the conformal coating process with you.

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.
