Enhanced protection for enhanced PCB performance
Conformal coatings are designed to protect printed circuit boards and related equipment from their environment. Typically applied at 25-75Î¼m, these coatings â€˜conformâ€™ to the contours of the board allowing for excellent protection and coverage, ultimately extending the working life of the PCB.More info > Download product selector chart > Download product brochure >
Electrolube is among the worldâ€™s foremost experts in the formulation and application of conformal coatings designed to meet international approvals (including European and American military specifications). The range of products currently available comprises acrylics, silicones, polyurethanes, hybrid chemistries and environmentally friendly options.
Electrolube can offer both transparent and pigmented coatings to improve or camouflage the appearance of printed circuit boards. The range also includes a number of ancillary products to complement the use of our conformal coatings, including thinners and removers, peelable coating masks and thixotropic materials for dam and fill applications.
Electrolubes Conformal Coatings Technical Director Phil Kinner recently wrote a micro e-book on conformal coatings for harsh environments. Itâ€™s a great little insight into the selection, implementation and testing of protective coating process.
Product code: AFA200 - AFA05L
AFA is an optically clear conformal coating ideally suited for use as an LED coating or in other commercial applications. AFA boasts superb properties, maintaining excellent clarity, with minimal colour temperature shift after prolonged UV exposure making it a superb choice for an LED coating application. While it also provides excellent protection in humid environments, and flexibility over a wide operating temperature range.
AFA also contains a UV trace, which allows inspection of the PCB after coating to ensure complete and even coverage and may be removed for rework using solvents such as Electrolube's ULS.
AFA is also available in pre-mixed versions for atomised spray applicators (AFA-S) and in line selective coating machines and non-atomised film coating applicators (AFA-F).
