Impending new F-Gas regulations, set to commence in 2018, will ultimately have a big impact on the choice of propellant chemicals used in aerosol products. With European legislation limiting the amount of fluorinated gases used as propellants in aerosols to one fifth of their 2014 levels by 2030. This will impact anyone who currently uses an airduster in the industry, even every day maintenance such as clearing dust and contaminants from difficult-to-access electronic circuits and components.  

To combat this change,…

Posted on 08 July 2016 by Phil Kinner DE FR

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:

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.
