Electrolube Introduce Aromatic Free Polyurethane Coating
Posted on 24 June 2013 by Electrolube
Electrolube has announced the addition of a new Aromatic Free Polyurethane conformal coating (PUCAF) to their product range. PUCAF has been specifically designed for the protection of electronic circuitry for optimum reliability and increased performance of devices. The coating utilizes a specialist blend of solvents ensuring the product is completely free from aromatic content, whilst offering ease of use via all types of application method, including manual and selective spray processes. The modified polyurethane conformal coating is tough, flexible and increases throughput due to a rapid touch dry time of less than 10 minutes. Certified and compliant with REACH, RoHS, UL94 V-0 and IPC-CC-830, PUCAF fluoresces under UV light to aid inspection and provides excellent mechanical and dielectric properties.
The aromatic free coating demonstrates excellent adhesion to many substrates, a wide operating temperature range and is highly resistant to mould growth and moisture. Once cured, the coating can also be removed with the highly effective Conformal Coating Remover Gel (CCRG), a thixotropic gel that excludes the use of dichloromethane. Ron Jakeman, Managing Director of the H K Wentworth Group, comments: "We are delighted to expand our range of conformal coatings with PUCAF. Electrolube strives to develop and build upon popular and successful conformal coating products and will continue to introduce new solutions of the highest quality, providing performance benefits whilst considering both operator and environmental safety."
The consistent review of standards confirms that all products produced under the Electrolube brand remain compliant with RoHS and REACH legislation, therefore ensuring continuity of supply to all Electrolube customers. PUCAF is one of several new coating products introduced recently to Electrolube's range of conformal coatings, featuring established coatings HPA, APL, DCA and PUC, which are universally popular and very widely specified. These will continue to be available globally, of course, and form a very solid base to what is now a considerably expanded and strengthened range of conformal coating available from Electrolube.
