Coating and Encapsulation
Electronics assemblies are coated or potted for a variety of reasons including product safety, environmental protection and improved performance.
In extreme environments, where reliability is critical, conditions such as heat, moisture and shock can inhibit the performance of electronic components, or even cause permanent damage. As such, conformal coating and encapsulation are often used to improve reliability in harsh environmental applications such as aerospace, automotive and defence.
We use a state-of-the-art PVA Delta 6 robotic system for coating and encapsulation services, which enables us to offer a variety of flexible coating options.
- Conformal Coating
Each different technique, combined with a specially-selected chemical substance, will offer unique properties and enhancements for your electronics assembly.
Potential enhancements can include:
- Moisture resistance (potential to make components fully-waterproof)
- Reduced electrostatic attraction of dust
- Flame retardant properties
- Resistance to shock and vibration
- Improved heat dissipation
- UV protection
- Protection from harsh chemicals
- Electrical insulation
We aim to be as flexible as possible to our customers’ needs. As a result, we collaborate to consider a range of different coating types and techniques that can best-suit your unique application.
Speak to a member of our team today to discuss how you can improve the robustness of your electronic assemblies using conformal coating and encapsulation.

Five Considerations When Designing IoT Devices
The Internet of Things allows medical, industrial and commercial organisations to offer benefits to customers and create new business opportunities, however, these applications often require a high level of reliability and the ability to operate in harsh environments. When developing an IoT device, designers and engineers face a number of technical challenges and must bear in mind a number of important design considerations, especially when designing an industrial IoT system or device.
The Chips are Down for the Electronics Industry
Manufacturers of consumer electronics usually implement a conservative production plan, and dynamically adjust it based on sales. The disruption to the supply chain over the past 18 months has resulted in this just-in-time strategy proving tough to execute.
