What is a fluoropolymer coating?

surface-tension-fluoroploymer-coating-500A fluoropolymer coating is comprised of fluorocarbons and characterized by carbon-fluorine bonds.

The coating is chemically inert as fluorocarbons are not susceptible to Van der Waals force. This means their characteristics  are being non-stick, friction reducing and hydrophobic.

They are also very chemically resistant demonstrating a high level of durability to acids, bases and most solvents. This is due to the fluorine bonds.

Why select a nano conformal coating like a fluoropolymer?

The nano coatings do a different job to the traditional liquid conformal coatings.

What they do is effectively change the surface energy of the substrate they are applied to.

This change in surface energy makes it harder for liquids like water and oils to wet the surface and cause corrosion etc.

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.
