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.
