In my last blog piece I laid out some basic points to help ‘design out production problems’  - essentially how to spot those ‘wrinkles’ that might have an adverse effect on production, ironing them out before you even think about applying conformal coatings to your products.

In this post, I’m going to take a look at some issues you are sure to face - and which must be taken into consideration - when, finally, you apply those conformal coatings. Here are my five essential facts:

How to ‘design-out’ production problems

I have quite a few years experience and knowledge of the coatings business, and I'm still learning, but there are certain production related issues that cause problems time and time again, problems that could so easily have been resolved at the design stage. In this blog, I intend to highlight these and, by doing so, hope to get the design guys fully on-side with their production colleagues.

Conformal Coating aerosol application

Conformal Coatings are used across a hugely diverse selection of electronics, from everyday household appliances to automotive and even in spacecraft applications; it therefore goes without saying that selecting the correct conformal coating for the job is vital.

So…… you believe that you have selected the right coating for the job and are good to go??   - WRONG!

You now have to apply the conformal coating. This is a stage in the process that is often overlooked in the design process and this can cause delays or problems in production…
