New conformal coatings for high throughput production processes

Designed to protect electronic circuitry for optimum reliability and increased performance of devices, Electrolube’s new aromatic free polyurethane coating, PUCAF, is completely free from aromatic content and contains no isocyanates, making it safer and more user-friendly for the operator. The modified polyurethane conformal coating is tough, flexible and increases throughput due to a rapid touch dry time of less than 10 minutes. PUCAF fluoresces under UV light to aid inspection and is both certified and compliant with RoHS, MIL-1-46058C, DEF-STAN 59/47 and IPC-CC-830.

Electrolube’s UV cure conformal coating, UVCL, provides the highest level of protection of electronic circuitry at exceptionally high speeds of application and cures within seconds upon exposure to UV light.  The low viscosity, single component conformal coating is the ultimate choice for high throughput production processes, significantly reducing the time taken to complete the conformal coating step. UVCL has been designed for automated processes using selective spray technology, however, other spraying techniques and touch-up application via brush may also be employed.  UVCL is the next generation of VOC-free coating and its low viscosity allows the application of relatively thin films without the need for dilution. The non-flammable, flexible coating provides moisture and chemical resistance at minimal cost and fluoresces under UV light for ease of inspection. Developed for high volume users in fields such as automotive and consumer electronics, UVCL qualified for the IPC industry standard following stringent tests to establish quality conformance requirements for electrical insulating compounds.

The aromatic free acrylic coating, AFA, is a flexible and transparent acrylic conformal coating that complies with RoHS, Military and IPC standards and has been formulated to meet many of today’s commercial applications.  Designed for high protection of electronic circuitry and operator safety, the AFA coating is free from aromatic solvents such as Toluene and Xylene and contains no isocyanates, which means it can be soldered through without fear of highly toxic gases being produced. AFA also fluoresces under UV light to facilitate inspection and provides excellent mechanical and dielectric properties.
