My name is Dr Lee Hitchens and I am the author of the Nexus conformal coating website and eBook.
If you’re reading this blog then the chances are you are looking for a piece of information on some area of conformal coating and this is exactly what Nexus was written for.
To start with I thought I would try and answer a few of the basic questions you may have so you can understand what Nexus and I stand for?
What is Nexus?
Nexus is an independent website and eBook dedicated to providing information on all areas of conformal coating and the related topics connected to the process.
This includes Parylene and other deposition processes, fluoropolymer technologies plus the traditional conformal coating materials.
It is made up of a lot of knowledge from many different people from the world of conformal coating that you should find useful.
Why create Nexus?
I have been working in the area of conformal coatings and electronics high reliability for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support.
I have also been training people in all areas of conformal coating for almost the same amount of time.
A few years ago I decided that people needed a specific place where they could find all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings and use in their own production process.
So, Nexus was created and I began writing the website.
Nexus is Peer Reviewed
This year I decided to re-launch Nexus and create an online eBook.
The major difference with the new site was that the information added was all peer reviewed.
That is people from all over the industry are helping with the quality of the content and helping peer review the information.
This is so the conformal coating knowledge you have from Nexus is as independent as it can ever be and should be able to guide you through most issues without risk of commercial bias.
I hope that you find it the case and the information you find is useful.
So where to start with Nexus?
If you are new to Nexus then a good place to go is our Start Here page.
When people visit our site they go to certain areas. I have tried to indicate these pages directly and help you save some time.
I hope that it works for you.
Finally, this is a continuous project and I am always looking to improve the content. If you need anything specific then let me know and I will be more than happy to help out.
I hope that you find this the case and that you will find all the knowledge you need on understanding conformal coatings and being successful in their application.
Let me know what you think?
