Conformal coating is a protective coating or polymer film. Its purpose is to protect electronic circuits from harsh environments that may contain high humidity, a range of airborne contaminants and varying temperatures. By being electrically insulating, it maintains long-term surface insulation resistance (SIR) levels and thus ensures the operational integrity of the assembly.
P2i is the manufacturer for liquid repellent nano-coating technology. They have recently launched a new Halogen-Free Barrier product range. The new product is a reworkable and sustainable coating solution for Printed Circuit Board(PCB).
It enables OEMs to achieve their environmental targets by cutting harmful emissions in production. It also reduces scrap and customer returns due to the elimination of corrosion damage. The product can be utilised for a wide range from automotive to consumer electronics.
In addition to this, P2i claims that their approach can reduce the environmental impact of OEM’s activities to the growing environmental pollution. They can do so by providing the electronic components with an increased lifespan while eliminating the hazardous chemicals. This can also help in reducing electrical waste and landfill.
Ady Moores, the CEO of P2i in a recent statement told that,
“This is a step-change for the industry. P2i’s approach will substantially lessen the environmental impact of OEMs’ activity by eliminating halogens from the manufacturing process. This also aligns to the stated goals set out by Greenpeace in its ‘Guide to Greener Electronics’ report.P2i is thrilled to announce these new Halogen-Free Barrier Products. This is the ideal sustainable liquid protection solution for electronics across a wide range of industries, and it will have a key role to play in helping OEMs achieve their environmental impact and sustainability goals.”
The company informed that their Halogen-free barrier coatings are an innovative nano-coating solution. It can provide superior liquid protection. It also improves the reliability on all printed circuit boards. It does so with a fully-integrated and proven manufacturing process.
The P2i Halogen-Free Barrier is available in three different variants. The Halogen-Free Barrier Lite provides a board-level IPx4 solution. The Halogen-Free Barrier provides a blend of IPx4 + short immersion solution. The Halogen-Free Barrier Max helps in achieving the device-level protection of IPx8.
