Production Key stages in Conformal Coating: Masking

Sealing a circuit ready for dip conformal coating using masking tape and latexIn conformal coating, some components and printed circuit board locations must remain uncoated due to the nature of the coating.

The purpose of masking is to prevent the application of conformal coating on components that need to be clear.

There are several masking techniques using various masking materials including:

  • Masking Dots and Tapes
  • Liquid Latex
  • Masking Boots

In general, making a circuit board for conformal coating can be a straightforward process. However, the skills required need to be learnt.
