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.

What is the real cost for conformal coating processes problems?

What does it cost a company to make a mistake in conformal coating processing?

  • Extra rework?
  • Scrapping a batch of PCBs?
  • Loss of a key customer?
  • A Lawsuit for damages?

However, Having an in-house conformal coating expert available for problems that occur infrequently is very expensive in today’s economic world.

Nexus can offer  ongoing Independent conformal coating support contracts for all levels of budgets and help protect your processes before the small problems get too big!

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.

Nexus is an Independent Conformal Coating Resource and Database

Nexus brings together the accumulated knowledge of a group of conformal coating and electronics material dispensing consultants who provide a unique service, focussed on helping electronics manufacturing clients improve their conformal coating and electronics materials processes.

Nexus operate across North America, Europe and Asia and can provide a unique perspective to the rapidly growing conformal coating and electronics materials industry. Expertise is held in liquid and parylene coating, capital equipment sales and specifications and material, equipment and process specification, troubleshooting and training.

One of the founder members of Nexus is Dr Lee Hitchens PhD who has worked within the conformal coating industry for over 18 years. Until recently Dr Hitchens’ work included sales of conformal coating materials and capital robotic equipment in all areas of the world. However, he decided to form Nexus and become independent.

Dr Hitchens sums up Nexus,

“The demands on conformal coatings and the processes that apply them are becoming more and more complex with the exponential growth in electronics. Couple this with the knowledge gap and the lack of time to learn in most companies and you find a very difficult situation for most users.

Nexus is here to bridge the gap. Independent of all material and major capital equipment suppliers, our consultants can offer a unique perspective into conformal coating that users can tap into, as much or as little as needed. We can champion the user but also offer help to the supplier who needs to educate a rapidly growing market across the globe.”
