Electrolube to launch new aqueous conformal coating at APEX
Jan 16, 2006
UK electrochemicals manufacturer Electrolube will be promoting its new aqueous conformal coating, Aquacoat Plus, at APEX this year (Booth 606).
Aquacoat Plus is a water-based conformal coating which has been specifically formulated for the protection of electronic circuitry. It offers an excellent combination of physical and electrical properties and eliminates the need for extraction and other precautions normally required for the application of conventional solvent-based conformal coatings. Aquacoat Plus is non-flammable and contains low levels of VOCs. It contains no isocyanates, so it can be soldered through without fear of highly toxic gases being produced, and is phenol-free, meaning that it is non-corrosive to Cadmium and Zinc plate.
Based on polymeric materials, Aquacoat Plus offers excellent adhesion on a wide variety of substrates and a wide operating temperature range. It is available in two formulations: WBP is the standard product while WBPS (Sprayable) has been specifically formulated and tested for use in selective film coating equipment. Aquacoat Plus meets the requirements of DEF-STAN, MIL and IPC-CC-830 and RoHS compliant.
