Conformal Coatings and Potting Materials — The Good and Bad

Improve PCBs by addressing coating issues

Conformal coatings and potting materials are an important part of printed circuit board (PCB) technology, but they also cause many issues in the electronics industry, including:

  • Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
  • Delamination, cracking and de-wetting
  • Pinholes/bubbles and orange peel issues 
  • Glass Transition Temperature (Tg)
  • PCB warpage
  • And more

Watch our webinar Coatings and Pottings — A Critical Update for a deep dive into the issues of these materials and how to address them, including a look at the effects of improper curing and potential methods for correcting these situations. Plus, hear about advances in superhydrophobic materials technology.
