1B73 LOC

HumiSeal® 1B73LOC conformal coating:

  • low VOC solvent based conformal coating that complies with most North American air quality regulations.
  • a fast drying, single component, acrylic coating intended for printed circuit assemblies.
  • fluoresces under UV light for ease of inspection and is easily repaired

HumiSeal® 1B73LOC conformal coating has:

  • MIL-I-46058C qualification
  • IPC-CC-830
  • RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU
  • recognition under UL File Number E105698.

Conformal coatings can be successfully applied to substrates that have been cleaned prior to coating and also to substrates assembled with low residue “no clean” materials.  Users should perform adequate testing to confirm compatibility between the conformal coating and their particular assembly materials, process conditions and cleanliness level.  Please contact HumiSeal® for additional information.

Depending on the complexity, density and configuration of components on the assembly, it may be necessary to reduce the viscosity of HumiSeal® 1B73LOC with HumiSeal® Thinner 701 in order to obtain a uniform film.  Once optimum viscosity is determined, a controlled rate of immersion and withdrawal (5-15 cm/min) will further ensure even deposition of the coating and ultimately a uniform film.  During the application, evaporation of solvent causes an increase in viscosity that should be adjusted by adding small amounts of HumiSeal® Thinner 701.  Viscosity in the dip tank should be checked regularly, using a simple measuring device such as a Zahn or Ford viscosity cup.

HumiSeal® 1B73LOC can be sprayed using conventional spraying equipment.  Spraying should be done in an environment with adequate ventilation so that the vapour and mist are carried away from the operator.  The addition of HumiSeal® Thinner 701 is necessary to ensure a uniform spray pattern resulting in pinhole-free film.  The amount of thinner and spray pressure will depend on the specific type of spray equipment used and operator technique.

HumiSeal® 1B73LOC may be brushed with a small addition of HumiSeal® Thinner 701. Uniformity of the film depends on component density and operator’s technique.
