Conformal coatings are nothing if not trustworthy. They are placed in some of the harshest environments known to man, forced to face dangerous conditions for long periods of time without sacrificing safety, longevity, or functionality. This is possible because conformal coatings boast an impressive array of strengths that allow survival--but too often we look at the big picture and forget to appreciate the smaller benefits that work together to create this cohesive reliability. Today, we'll take a look at one of the most important strengths: corrosion resistance.

A Crash-Course in Masking for Conformal Coating

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Feb 21, 2017 7:33:31 AM


Conformal coatings like parylene are strong and trustworthy, and they make necessary equipment safe to use and safer to rely on for long periods of time. However, even the best conformal coatings sometimes need a bit of help to perform their duties efficiently--and that's where masking comes in. Masking is a specialized process with a lot of variables, and, while it is necessary for many applications, the specifics aren't always well-known. Today, our conformal coating experts will provide a crash-course in masking.
