Nexus Conformal Coating Research Program

Nexus, an independent conformal coating resource company, have launched an Independent Conformal Coating Research Project starting in September 2012. Why should your company take part?
Nexus is conducting a world-first, independent analysis of the most popular commercially available conformal coating materials and combining the data with the various application methods used to apply them, to provide you an unparalleled level of knowledge and insight.
The Research Program will be structured over two years and broken into 3 phases. The Research Program will look at all areas of conformal coating, cleaning and related reliability.
 

Phase 1: Conformal Coating Materials and Equipment Benchmarking

In an effort to answer these questions and many more Nexus will begin Phase 1 of a full ongoing Research Program in August. This Research will identify the best conformal coating materials, conformal coating application processes and ultimately value for money for customers in the world of electronics printed circuit board protection.

  • Upon completion of the research you will know:
  • Whether your Conformal Coating Material is the best available for your application including well known acrylic, urethane, silicone liquid conformal coatings and parylene coatings.
  • Whether your application process is giving you the best results from your material
  • Whether there is a significant difference in protection provided by the various conformal coating equipment and application methods
  • Just how good the new environmentally friendly conformal coatings are
  • Optimise your commercial costs through using the right conformal coating materials and equipment
  • Which materials and processes you should be considering for your new projects

Just how good are the new environmentally friendly conformal coatings? Nexus Can answer this….

In an effort to answer this question and many more Nexus will begin Phase 1 of a full ongoing Conformal Coating Research Program in August.

This Research will identify the best conformal coating materials, conformal coating application processes and ultimately value for money for customers in the world of electronics printed circuit board protection.

The First Phase of the Research will:

  • Compare and rank the protective capability of a number new and well established conformal coatings including both liquid and parylene based materials, against single aggressive environments as well as the sequential load to provide a reliability enhancement index.
  • Compare and rank the performance capability of the commercial application methods including selective spraying, batch spraying, dipping and brushing.
  • Provide a cost comparison of coated assemblies and determine cost-benefit comparisons between coating materials and application processes combinations.

This research will be open to join by users and suppliers alike who wish to access the full unabridged data.

Nexus Exhibit at Farnborough to Announce Conformal Coating Research Program

Nexus are announcing their Research Program next week at the Farnborough Aerospace Show (FIA)

Some of the most Frequently Asked Questions that are asked of Nexus include:

  •    What is the the best conformal coating for my Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)?
  •     How good is the Conformal Coating I am using right now?
  •     Can I switch the conformal coating I am currently using?
  •     Just how good are the new environmentally friendly conformal coatings ?
  •     What conformal coating process should I use to give me the best protection for my board?
  •     Can I use a lower cost conformal coating and still achieve the same level of protection?

In an effort to answer these questions and many more Nexus will begin Phase 1 of a full ongoing Research Program in August.

Nexus July Newsletter focuses on Conformal Coating Material Challenges

The July issue of the Nexus Newsletter will focus on Conformal Coating Material Challenges. The issue will explore many areas including:

  • Expert Views from Materials and Equipment Suppliers, Users and Coating Service Providers  of both liquid and XY materials.
  • A technical article on the key material challenges including the issues of lead free processing, cleaning, adhesion and the standards
  • A guide on how to choose a material and a material supplier

Nexus will also be announcing a large material research project aimed at benchmarking all of the mainstream materials. The Research Program will be open to Suppliers and Users a like and will aim to show an independent view on material performance against standards and tests. These results will enable companies to determine how good their conformal  coating  material is and just what are the alternatives.

Register for the Nexus Newsletter in July.

PREVIEW: August Edition of the Nexus Newsletter will focus on Conformal coating Inspection, Automated Inspection and AOI.
