Why use a conformal coating to protect your electronic circuit board assembly?
A conformal coating protects the circuit board during its lifetime of use
A conformal coating is a protective non conductive dielectric layer that is applied onto the printed circuit board assembly surface to protect the electronic assembly during its working life.
The coating protects from damage due to contamination, salt spray, moisture, fungus, dust and corrosion caused by harsh or extreme environments.
The coating is usually used on electronic products that are exposed to adverse environments where heat, chemicals and / or moisture are prevalent.
Conformal coating also can prevent damage from rough handling, installation, reduction of mechanical and thermal stress.
It can prolong the life of the product during its operation and at the same time, it can help to increase the dielectric strength between conductors enabling the design of the PCB to be more compact and small.
Finally, it also acts to protect circuitry and components from abrasion and solvents.
