Chemtronics Intros 2 Water-Based Conformal Coatings
Water-based conformal coatings.
Kennesaw, GA — Chemtronics® has introduced two new water-based conformal coatings that reportedly provide superior protection for circuit boards, low odor, and lower VOC emissions. Konform® UR-A Conformal Coating is a special water-based, urethane material that effectively protects circuits from moisture and airborne contaminants. It protects against abrasion, humidity, salt, corrosive vapors, solvents and fungus for printed circuit board and electronic assemblies.

The new coating is an unusual hybrid of acrylic and urethane resins, with the insulating dielectric advantages of an acrylic coating and the chemical resistance of urethane. Konform HR provides an effective protective barrier against humidity, salt, corrosive vapors and fungus.

Konform UR-A and HR are water-based coatings that utilize the safer and more environmentally-friendly water that replaces high-VOC and toxic solvents such as xylene, toluene, and MEK. VOCs are smog producing compounds that are highly regulated in many regions. Removing highly volatile solvents also reduces the odor, which can improve the work environment. Both coatings are compliant with European RoHS and REACH directives in addition to most other environmental standards.

Konform Conformal Coatings are engineered to protect printed circuit boards and components. These coatings provide excellent electrical insulation and withstand hot and cold operating environments, as well as heat generated by electronic circuitry.
