The global manufacturer of electro-chemicals took the opportunity provided by Productronica to unveil the jewel in its crown – the all-important conformal coatings product range - which this year is set to halt visitors in their tracks as the company showcases a remarkable new product range. Taking centre stage is the innovative range of two-component conformal coating systems, prefixed ‘2K’. The new range comprises three products, each meeting a host of specifications and all fully IPC-CC-830 compliant.
2K100 is a general purpose two-part system, offering high flexibility and low stress across an operating temperature range of -40 - +100°C. The coating is hydrophobic and demonstrates excellent performance with regard to salt mist, condensation and chemical resistance. The 2K300two-part system is also hydrophobic and highly resistant to condensation, salt mist and chemicals, but offers an enhanced thermal performance (-40 - +130°C).
For tougher applications the new 2K500 two-part system is not only mechanically robust but also offers good abrasion resistance along with increased thermal endurance (-40 - +140°C). Ensuring good adhesion to any substrate, the 2K500 system is additionally characterised by its excellent thermal shock performance.
Electrolube can offer a conformal coating for virtually every type of application. Making their debut at Productronica this year are ranges of urethane, silicone, fluorinated polymer and fluorinated solvent based products that meet key industry standards and the demands of a variety of harsh operating environments.
The URC high performance, low-odour urethane coating offers outstanding adhesion to a variety of substrates and a fast touch-dry time. The chemically resistant coating has an operating temperature range of -40 - + 130°C and meets both IPC-CC-830 and MIL (MIL-1-46058C) approvals.
Offering excellent thermal performance, SC-102 is a 100 percent solids silicone coating that is particularly suited to the protection of delicate components. This soft, flexible coating has an exceptionally fast touch-dry (<10 minutes) and will cure at room temperature.
The specialist fluorinated polymer coating, FPC has very low surface energy and will repel hydrocarbon and silicone oils, synthetic fluids and aqueous solutions. It has low solids content and low film strength once cured and offers several practical advantages, including a non-requirement for connectors to be masked prior to coating. FPC is non-flammable and contains a UV trace to aid visual inspection. The associated product, HFS is a non-flammable, high-performance fluorinated solvent for diluting fluorinated coatings. It is cost effective and efficient in application and offers a very fast touch-dry time.
