Conformal Coating. A board lifespan extended as much as three times
Are there any fields for which “coating” is more suitable than for others?
It is suitable for all types. But if your product is located within an environment unfriendly with external effects - which can be high altitude, or quite the opposite, work below surface or in deep mines - it will be much more likely to be exposed to risk. The same rules are also applied in Equatorial and tropical zones where there is a problem with relatively higher air humidity. Generally speaking an electronic set will last in such unfavorable conditions as much is three times longer than a non-coated board.
How does conformal coating work in practice?
We have fully automated coating lines that need all the required standards for the system of selective coaching with different types of paints. The entire process is then fully automatic. Cleaning, applying and hardening. We guarantee the quality including a full evidence of all the processes and final exit inspection.
Generally the topic of safety and security accompanies each of your solutions.
Yes but it makes sense and all the logic. If we train the IPC Class 3 – so the highest standard for the quality of printed circuit boards then our partial services are linked to high quality of all activities. That's why we deal with anti-statics, that's why we work with dampening with dry fog, that's why we apply paints or are capable of servicing printed circuit boards. We really aim and strive to be the ones setting trends in the sphere of quality standards.
Since when have you been working with Gatema company?
We have been working with Gatema for many years. My estimate is that it has been seven or eight years. Not only on the level of certified IPC trainings and seminars. Within the Gatema Day event in 2019 I also held a workshop on the topic of surface adjustments of printed circuit boards. We are connected with the drive and desire for superior and premium quality and we aim all our efforts in each aspect to deliver more than just good work.
