Application of 1A33 LTX Conformal Coating
Cleanliness of the substrate is of extreme importance for the successful application of a conformal coating. Surfaces must be free of moisture, dirt, wax, grease, flux residues and all other contaminants. Contamination under the coating could cause problems that may lead to assembly failures.
HumiSeal®1A33 LTX Pre-blend Products are specifically diluted to a viscosity for immediate use. No additional dilution is required. Customers should establish which Pre-Blend is suitable for their equipment and application method before commercial use. HumiSeal® Technical Support should be contacted if any further advice on Pre-blend Products and equipment is required.
Depending on the complexity, density and configuration of components on the assembly, it may be necessary to reduce the viscosity of HumiSeal 1A33 with HumiSeal Thinner 503 in order to obtain a uniform film. Once optimum viscosity is determined, a controlled rate of immersion and withdrawal (typically, 5 to 15 cm/min) will further ensure even deposition of the coating and provide a uniform film. During application, evaporation of solvent causes an increase in viscosity that should be adjusted by adding small amounts of HumiSeal® Thinner 503. Viscosity in the dip tank should be checked regularly using a simple measuring device, such as a Zahn or Ford viscosity cup.
HumiSeal® 1A33 LTX and Pre-Blends should be stored away from excessive heat or cold, in tightly closed containers. HumiSeal® products may be stored at temperatures of 0 to 35°C. Prior to use, allow the product to equilibrate for 24 hours at a room temperature of 18 to 32°C.
Application of HumiSeal® Conformal Coatings should be carried out in accordance with local and National Health and Safety regulations.
The solvents in HumiSeal® Conformal Coatings are flammable. The material should not be used in presence of open flame or sparks. Use only in well-ventilated areas to avoid inhalation of vapors or spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
