What sectors are polyurethane conformal coatings used to protect electronic circuit boards?

 

NEXUS1Polyurethane conformal coatings are used in nearly all sectors where electronic circuit boards are used including:

  1. Aerospace
  2. Defence
  3. Marine
  4. Transport
  5. Automotive
  6. Control drives
  7. Industrial electronics
  8. LEDs
  9. Telecommunications
  10. Mobile technology
  11. White goods

In fact there are few sectors they are not used.


Why use a polyurethane conformal coating in electronics protection?

Conformal coatings made from polyurethane resin are part of the organic family of coating materials that also includes the acrylic and epoxy materials.

All organic conformal coating materials provide good humidity & moisture protection.

What differentiates the polyurethane coating from the other coatings like the acrylic resins is that the urethanes also offer high chemical resistance.

This makes them excellent conformal coatings where chemical attack is a potential hazard for the electronic circuit.
