People come to the Nexus eBook for several reasons.
Looking at our visitor statistics most people go to the following five sections:
- Designing for conformal coating
- Troubleshooting your conformal coating process
- The basics of conformal coating
- Conformal coating removal
- How to select a conformal coating material
Click on each to find out more about the five most popular conformal coating areas.
When a problem occurs on the coating line and a circuit board is defective there is generally a good reason for the occurence. This week Nexus takes a look at Capillary Flow.
Capillary flow (or scavenging) in conformal coating processing is where the coating pulls or runs away from certain areas of a PCB to more favourable areas.
This is due to a combination of effects which leave a patchy finish on the surface of the board around the defective area.
There are several options to resolve this issue and prevent this occurring in production.

Nexus are to hold a FREE conformal coating workshop in the Diamond SCH coating facility in Shenzhen China on the 17th October 2012.
Topics include Troubleshooting your conformal coating process. This presentation will look at all the failure mechanisms and defects that can occur when coating a printed circuit board and the practical aspects of improving the application process to minimise or eliminate the problems.
This One-day workshop will be held at the Diamond SCH Conformal Coating Facility. The address is 3rd Floor, A5 Building, Tianrui Industrial Park, Fuyuan Road1, FuYong Town, Baoan District, Shenzhen, China.

Conformal coating issues and problems occur regularly in the world of electronics manufacturing. When the problems occur the customer needs fast, practical and commercially sensible solutions to the issues. Nexus offer unparalleled knowledge, failure analysis tools and skills to identify failure mechanisms in the conformal coating process, whether this is a long term field failure or a line process control issue.
Contact Nexus by clicking Conformal Coating Consultancy who offer practical advice and knowledge, and ensure a solution is found.
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 have launched a bench mark service in the United Kingdom for companies who use conformal coatings. This is to help companies understand how good their current conformal coating process is and how it can be improved. This is a pilot scheme that if successful will be introduced to other countries.
This service will allow companies to access top consultants and understand how well their conformal coating processes are working for a very small investment.
- UNDERSTAND YOUR CONFORMAL COATING PROCESSES
- IDENTIFY THE WEAKNESSES
- CORRECT THEM BEFORE THEY BECOME MAJOR PROBLEMS!
The service works as follows:
- The consultant visits the company facility for 2-3 hours where the conformal coating takes place
- The consultant will examine the current conformal coating processes, compare them to current best practice and discuss improvements with the customer
- The consultant will provide a Process Improvement Report within 2-3 days of the visit outlining the findings of the visit, how the processes compare to the best in the world and what could be improved.
The service costs £199 ex VAT plus travel expenses up to a maximum of £200.

In July, Nexus will launch a new online Bench Marking Service for users of conformal coatings. The system will allow information about processes to be entered and gives out a report of how safe the coating systems are with options on improvements.
This novel service allows Nexus to lead the way in conformal coating consultancy.
Register Now with Nexus to use the Online Benchmark service launched in July.
