Ask The Expert: Karl Hardcastle, SCH Services Ltd, Subcontract Conformal Coating Service on Key Conformal Coating Material Challenges

“One of the biggest issues we face is availability of the materials. As a subcontract coating house we generally have to use the coating selected by the customer. This can have dramatic issues occasionally when lead times on products can stretch into weeks or months and the customer wants the product now!”
“Conformal coating is one of the last processes on the PCB. Coating houses are normally making up the time lost in other areas. If you can plan the production to coincide with the material supply chain it’s a great help!”

Ask The Expert: Dr Lee Hitchens, Nexus on Key Conformal Coating Inspection Challenges

“Considering the Key Inspection Challenges faced by users, then continuity of what people actually require in terms of quality of finish is the biggest problem for conformal coating inspection. Using the standards available are fine but many companies don’t really read them and actually don’t understand them fundamentally.”
“For instance, is it really okay to have debris on the surface of a conformal coated PCB? The IPC IPC-A610 Acceptance Standard states it is okay as long as the, “Foreign material does not violate minimum electrical clearance between components, lands or conductive surfaces”. I guess that most would not consider this okay cosmetically even if technically and electrically this is fine. This discrepancy in understanding is key to inspection”

Ask The Expert: Karl Hardcastle, SCH Services Ltd, Subcontract Conformal Coating Service on Key Conformal Coating Inspection Challenges

“One of the interesting points is not all conformal coating defects and problems show up under UV light. You really need to inspect your PCB under white light and UV light to check for different defects. What can look like a perfect coating under UV can cosmetically look awful under normal daylight!”

“Also, you cannot tell how good coating adhesion is with visual inspection only. We examine the PCB as a coating service and if it looks good that’s fine. but without testing we cannot tell how well the conformal coating has adhered.”
