Electrolube Non-VOC Conformal Coating Extended
Conformal coating comes in 3 versions.
Swadlincote, UK — Electrolube has introduced NVOC conformal coating — a flexible, moisture cure, conformal coating applications. The product has been designed to meet the high performance of solvent-based coatings without the use of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and with minimal changes to processing parameters. NVOC conformal coating has been tested to many important standards recognized in the electronics industry, proving that it is a viable, special alternative to many standard solvent-based conformal coatings.

NVOC offers such environmental and user benefits as greater coverage, less waste, no solvent emissions upon cure and no expensive curing equipment is required. The high viscosity version has been developed for applications where a thicker coating or manual application is required. These include, brush, dip and high viscosity selective spray applications. Both the standard NVOC and the high viscosity version are suitable for atomizing and swirl selective coat applications.

The gel version is a single-part, thixotropic material designed for glob-top applications where the coating should not flow once applied. The thixotropic gel cures at room or elevated temperatures upon exposure to atmospheric moisture and incorporates a UV trace to aid inspection. It is well suited for applications where components are difficult to coat due to size, shape and position. Applied by a syringe or needle applicator, it offers all of the benefits of the standard NVOC material, including excellent adhesion, chemical resistance and electrical properties, but in a gel form.

The 200ml aerosol version utilizes the standard NVOC coating to provide an easy solution to manual application. This addition makes the NVOC range the most versatile solvent-based alternative available on the conformal coating market today.

The complete range has been designed to reduce the impact of conformal coating applications on the environment as well as reducing the risk to the end user. They have excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and offer excellent resistance to mold growth. The cured coatings can be removed easily with the company's remover gel (DRG). All contain a UV trace to aid inspection.
