Electrolube launches two new coating products - A3.171
Nov 13, 2007
Electrolube launch two innovative new products at Productronica, Area A3 Booth 171. Resin Stop is a new coating created using fluoropolymer technology and PCS is a new peelable coating mask, designed to withstand coating and wave soldering processes. Visitors to the stand will also have the opportunity to view a demonstration of the highly effective water-based conformal coating, Aquacoat Plus, which has been tested by two of the world's leading selective coating equipment providers, with outstanding results.
The new peelable coating mask, PCS, is water based and environmentally friendly. On application the mask is orange and changes to a darker colour once cured. One of the benefits of PCS is that it peels very easily after the cure process. Non-corrosive to most substrates, the new coating mask is a flexible synthetic acrylic latex with good solvent resistance making it ideal for masking components, connectors and other items during a conformal coating process. PCS ensures that sensitive items and areas requiring further processing are not coated and is particularly suitable for protecting areas from ingress of conformal coating, e.g. pin connectors, adjustable pots and IC sockets. The high film strength of PCS means that it can be peeled by hand without breaking or leaving residues. It is suitable for use with dip, spray or brush applied conformal coatings and is both low odour and free from ammonia.
The new fluoropolymer coating, Resin Stop, is ideally suited for coating machinery, jigs, moulds and other substrates of aluminium, stainless steel, glass and numerous plastics which are likely to come into contact with resin. Once applied to the substrate, Resin Stop provides a dry film that prevents most epoxy and polyurethane resins adhering. Once the resin has fully cured it can then simply be peeled off. The new coating, once applied, also offers multiple release cycles which help to increase productivity by eliminating the need to clean mould tools and similar equipment.
