Nexus Conformal Coating 101: The Basic Understanding

Nexus are launching a new section this month to look at the fundamental issues of conformal coating such as why coat and what does the coating do to protect the circuit board?

For example Nexus examines how the conformal coating protects the assembly from corrosion in harsh environments such as moisture, dust, chemicals, and temperature extremes that, if un-coated (non-protected), could result in damage or failure of the electronics to function.

It can also improves reliability in humid environments, reduce the need to hermetically seal the PCB, reduce conductor spacing’s on a PCB and protect the PCB in aggressive environment and keep it free from environmental particulates.
