The Chemistry of a conformal coating

Conformal coating is comprised of two significant parts namely the volatile and non-volatile materials.

The volatile materials can be further broken down into two sections: the solvents and the additives.

The non-volatile materials also comprise of two components namely the binders, which are comprised of resins and additives, and the colorants.

The powder-like material that is used to improve the properties of coatings is called the Filler. It is also used to even out the coating where irregularities in substrates are found when ready to be painted.

Each type of conformal coating has its own physical and electrical properties. It varies in both the wet and dry state thus enabling the user flexibility in selecting the type of conformal coating to be applied.
