Improve your conformal coating masking process reliability with custom boots

One of the most underestimated reasons for using conformal coating masking boots is that they improve the reliability of the process.

This is because they don’t leak as easily as conformal coating masking tape can!

The reality is that a well-designed boot will not allow conformal coating to penetrate into a component if it’s placed correctly; and the fact is that this is a very easy thing to do.

An operator using masking tape has to continuously show care and attention when applying the tape to the components. The level of skill required is high.

The level of skill required to apply a masking boot is much lower.

So, fewer errors are made and there are less costly repairs due to leaks.

Therefore, not only do you save up to 60% of your conformal coating masking costs due to reduced process times with boots but you can also improve the reliability of the masking process.

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.
