Are SCH Technologies conformal coating masking tapes and dots ESD safe?


Our masking tapes and dots are not made of ESD material so they are not ESD safe.

The problem is that conductive material does not make good masking tape for conformal coating. There are issues with properties like adhesion and flexibility.

However, you can overcome the static generated by the products by using ESD ionising blowers and fans around the area.

Combining this with your standard ESD protection like mats, wrist straps etc should make the process completely safe.

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.
