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

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 ProvidersĀ  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 conformalĀ  coatingĀ  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.
