Bright Shield conformal coatings to be distributed through SCH Technologies in India

Bright Shield LogoSCH announces the distribution of Bright Shield Conformal Coatings from Trinity Shields for the Asian market at the Electronica Exhibition in Bangalore, India in September 2014.

This is part of SCH’s ongoing expansion in Asia which includes the new office opening in India this Autumn along with direct staff employed there to help provide the high level of service customers expect.

Dr Lee Hitchens explains

“Trinity has been producing high quality conformal coatings in North America for many years with users ranging from the military to consumer electronics companies.  SCH and Trinity both identified a gap in the conformal coating market specifically within India and other BRIC countries and decided to move forward together. Trinity’s products meet the needs of the India market perfectly and we feel we can recommend them as a premier product”

Jonathan Jett, CEO of Trinity further explains:

“The Asian Electronics market demands high quality conformal coatings at a competitive price.  By offering the Bright Shield Conformal coatings on the Asian market for the first time, we are bridging the gap between quality and price by offering Indian manufactures the best in conformal coating while reducing their cost.  With Bright shield coatings, high quality at a competitive price is possible.  Trinity also recognizes the difficulty in stocking in India and we have committed to have inventory available for users when they need it and not have to wait for incoming shipments.”

Trinity will be showcasing these products with their distributor SCH Technologies at Booth 3125 at Electronica in Bangalore. Customers can visit the stand and request a free sample of liquid or aerosol conformal coating which will confirm that Bright Shield Conformal coatings offer a high quality product and a competitive price.

Using SCH conformal Coating masking boots saved more that half of Diamond MT masking costs

Diamond MT, a leading US parylene and liquid conformal coating subcontract coating house, recently changed to our NEW range of conformal coating masking boots after extensive trials.

As part of their conformal coating and parylene process, they use all types of masking materials including conformal coating masking boots. Their current production process costs several thousand dollars per month in masking materials and this is a significant cost. Diamond decided to work with SCH and see if we could help reduce their costs.

Our standard policy at SCH is to provide a free sample trial of conformal coating masking boots which we did for Diamond MT. This is because we are so sure we can save customers money by switching to our product and we offer a money back guarantee on any masking boot purchases.

Diamond MT subjected the masking boots to a series of rigorous tests at their facility to prove their suitability. The boots were exposed to many conditions including the toughest test of all, parylene masking, which demands a superior product to ensure the best results. The results were conclusive and the masking boots were high quality. Diamond MT now looked at the costs

When the analysis was completed, it was found pricing was lower by 30% compared to their current supplier. This immediately made a significant saving to Diamond MT.

What was really interesting was after using them in the first month, Diamond MT found the conformal coating masking boots lasted twice as long as their original boot from the alternate supplier. This meant that now Diamond MT has halved the volume of boots order and this has reduced their bill by 60% for the year.

This saving of 60% on conformal coating masking boots has meant what started as a simple trial led to a huge saving for Diamond MT.

Would you like a Free Trial and Money Back Guarantee for our Conformal Coating Masking Boots?

We are so sure we have a superior product that we are happy to provide a free trial of our conformal coating masking boots so you can test for yourself just how good they are. We can then work out your Return on Investment based upon how many boots you need.

If you then place an order with us and you don’t save money then we will give you your money back. GUARANTEED!

Why Use Polyurethane (UR) Conformal Coatings?

Polyurethane coatings are one of the second most popular choices for conformal coating applications after acrylic conformal coatings.

Urethane materials are available in many different forms including single component, two component, UV curable, and water borne systems. As a group, all UR coatings provide excellent humidity. What a key feature of UR mateirals is offering chemical resistance; this makes them one of the more popular coatings when it comes to protection of the critical operation of your printed circuit boards (PCBs) in a chemically aggressive environment.

On the downside, urethanes can have a few more issues such as longer cure schedules, harder to rework due to chemical resistance, higher costs due to higher cost of resins and certain issues with Health & Safety when soldering through the coatings.

Why Use Silicone (SR) Conformal Coatings?

Silicone conformal coatings are most widely used in high temperature environments due to their innate ability to withstand prolonged exposure to higher temperatures compared to all other conformal coating chemistries. This characteristic has made them one of the primary choices for under the hood automotive applications where temperature is critical. They are also capable of being applied in thicker films making them useful as a vibration dampening / isolation tool if the coated assembly is to be placed in a high vibration environment.

Silicone-based conformal coatings can be either tough, abrasion resistant, or soft, stress-relieving materials, depending on the formulation. They are most recognized for their stability over a wide temperature range and during temperature cycling. These conformal coatings provide good moisture and corrosion resistance and are available as both solvent-based and 100% solids formulations. The 100% solids materials can be cured with heat, moisture, or UV. Reworking can be a significant issue but chemical strippers are available that enable this process to varying degrees of success. As with epoxies and urethanes, there are some handling issues with silicone coatings, specifically if they are moisture cure in nature.

Why are there so many conformal coating material types?

There are a wide range of conformal coating materials available on the market. This is because of several reasons including

  • Different protection requirements for the printed circuit boards including moisture, waterproofing, chemical resistance and heat protection
  • Qualification needs where coatings are qualified to different standards including UL and Mil Spec
  • Environmental needs where the coating has less impact on the environment on the operator compared to typical conformal coatings
  • Cost and commercial issues. Some coatings are lower cost compared to others

Need help choosing the right conformal coating process, equipment or material? Use our Consultancy to find the answers….

New conformal coating processes, materials and equipment are being developed every day. The speed with which technology changes makes it almost impossible for the average engineer to know everything about conformal coating and that is where SCH can help.

Our consultants have intimate knowledge of the available conformal coatings and equipment in the market place and work with suppliers on a regular basis to ensure their knowledge is up to date. They are also aware of the current standards, legislation, and best practices and have in-depth experience in recommending processes that work immediately and without compromise. 

This allows SCH to recommend the optimum practical and commercially suitable process when it is a New Product Introduction (NPI) for the customer, without compromise to results.
