Unfortunately, for too many designers, conformal coating is simply a part number to apply to printed circuit boards.

For manufacturers embracing lean philosophies and applying conformal coatings, a failure to appreciate the subtleties of the application process can result in an un-coatable (at least as specified) assembly process.

Unfortunately, too many designers see conformal coating as a part number and do not understand the application process

Nexus have split the conformal coating Design Rules into 4 sections.

These are:

  • General Design
  • Selective Robot
  • Dipping
  • Batch Spraying

The design rules for conformal coating are generally straightforward.

Follow them and you can save money and time in your application process.

However, if the rules are not followed, the resultant circuit board design can challenge even the most sophisticated conformal coating system and its operator to achieve the finish desired.
