What would happen if I don’t mask a component or my circuit board correctly and apply conformal coating?

conformal coating masking tape and latex used to protect the circuit boardThe simple answer is the conformal coating is likely to go where you don’t want it to.

This will lead to the obvious step of either repairing the leak, stripping the conformal coating off the circuit board, removing a component to replace it or scrapping the board.

Therefore, the best option is to learn to mask printed circuit boards correctly.

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.
