Product advancements in UV curable coatings from Concoat
Apr 25, 2006
Concoat personnel will be available to discuss the significant advancements they have made both in the field of UV curable conformal coating materials and circuit board cleaning media at Nepcon UK.
Concoat Limited has made significant advancements in the field of UV curable conformal coating materials with HumiSeal UV40. Easy to process, it is extremely flexible, physically, making it less likely to "crack" under thermal cycling. Offering a genuine alternative, with none of the problems associated with these materials.
High volume users in fields such as automotive and consumer electronics can now gain access to the popular UV curable coating class (because of its rapid cure speed) with a level of processing ease and thermal cycling resistance never before achieved with UV materials. By careful polymer engineering, from first principles, Concoat has developed what can be summarised chemically as a polyurethane-polyacrylate hybrid UV curable polymer structure.
Humiseal UV40 is an extremely flexible coating, particularly under the stresses associated with thermal cycling. The coating is far less prone to cracking than all existing UV curable coatings, which has been the biggest drawback since their first introduction back in the 1980s.
The range has an exceptionally low solvents, (less than 3% content), that meets all ISO 14001 and major H&S/hazardous chemical regulatory requirements.
