De-masking is the process of removing the masking that leads to the next stage of Finishing.
Some factors that damage the conformal coating finish due to the de-masking process include:
- Masking removal when the tapes etc are removed
- Shadowing effects preventing coating reaching the right areas.
- Quality of coating being not up to standard
- Masking leakage where the coating has bled under the masking materials.
The amount and type of finishing required depends on several factors such as:
- Work instructions
- Coating defects
- Operator skill
- Degree of cure
