Electrolube’s Phil Kinner has been providing I-Connect007 readers with information, guidance and practical tips on the uses and applications of conformal coatings through Team Electrolube’s “Sensible Design” columns published over the last four years. Now, in his engaging, new, 12-part webinar series, Phil will delve even deeper into the subject, examining conformal coating chemistries in further detail, including their properties, applications, issues to be mindful of and the processes you should follow to achieve a successful coating outcome. The entire “Coatings Uncoated!” webinar series can be viewed in an hour and covers a comprehensive range of hot topics and application-relevant case-study overviews, as well as back-to-basic subject matter and issues, such as condensation and contamination. Each of the 12 segments can be viewed in about five minutes.
This overview session looks at the rationale for conformal coatings, the basic types of chemistry available and their differing characteristics. This webinar also explains the different levels of protection that conformal coatings can offer and the consequences of inadequate protection.
This insightful webinar considers the options for coating application processes, examines the pivotal role that application plays in the overall success of coating, and presents a great opportunity to grasp the importance of the process.
Have you ever wondered about the process of corrosion and the formation of tin whiskers? Understand more about the elements required to invoke corrosive damage and the role of cleaning. How can conformal coating and cleaning protect the board from corrosion and mitigate against the effect of tin whiskers?
Learn how to read through the jargon of datasheets and understand the differences in acrylic conformal coating options. How can additional data, including test results, ensure a greater understanding of the most suitable coating for your application? Contamination is the enemy!
An interesting case study concerning a telecommunications giant experiencing a high degree of field failures. Phil explains the mechanism behind the failures and why the silicone option proved unsuccessful. This webinar concludes with a full explanation of the successful solution.
Military and aviation applications represent some of the toughest challenges, as failure is simply not an option. In this case study, Phil explores an aviation-based customer application and the resultant solutions provided by Electrolube.
This webinar serves as an introduction to two-component (2K) coating systems and the overall benefits that are achievable. Phil explains how these coatings differ from the more traditional options and how they perform like a resin and behave like a coating.
This webinar considers a customer application involving aerosol spray coating. The customer reported failures due to arcing, creepage and corrosion. Phil explains the relevance of UL approvals and progresses through the details of the case study.
This webinar concerns an automotive-based application (engine management system). Over a period of two years, the number of field failures escalated beyond all accepted levels, and a new solution was required. Phil discusses the finer details of this interesting case study.
