Productronica Show 2016 a success for Conformal Coating Masking Boots

SCH found they were overwhelmed for enquiries for their reusable conformal coating masking boots at the Productronica Show in Munich this November.

Dr Lee Hitchens explains more.

We obviously sell a large range of products related to conformal coating and had enquiries all round. But, we couldn’t believe how much interest was shown in the boots.

In fact, at one point we thought we were going to run out of brochures even though we had brought a ridiculous amount with us!

I guess its because there is very little option for people in coating. You either mask with tape or selectively coat. However, many companies just cannot justify the costs of the machine.

The masking boots offer a great alternative to the tapes and dots and  people genuinely save large amounts of money time and time again when we show them the savings!

The use of other materials such as masking tapes, dots and liquid latex can be an effective process in protecting components from ingress of conformal coating.

Recyclable masking boots offer a labour saving alternative in both the masking and de-masking stages of the coating process.

This saves you time and money.

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.
