UV Curable UV500-2
HumiSeal®UV500-2 is a high solid UV dual cure elastomeric acrylate conformal coating, with higher flexibility compared to other UV curable conformal coatings. Its formula is based on HumiSeal UV500 andis formulated at higher viscosity to allow use with alternate application systems, and also to reduce capillarity and flow.
HumiSeal®UV500-2 has been specifically developed to
- Have excellent flexibility.
- Have excellent moisture resistance.
- Have highly stable electrical insulation properties.•Have good chemical resistance.
- Show excellent performance in thermal cycling tests.
- Fluorescence under UV light to allow coating inspection.•Cure tack-free with microwave or arc UV light.
- Have a secondary cue mechanism that will fully cure any unexposed areas of the coating within 7 days at ambient conditions

Application of HumiSeal®UV500-2
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” assembly 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.SprayingHumiSeal®UV500-2can be applied via standard selective coating equipment or by conventional hand spray equipment. The source air used for spraying must be dry (a dry air supply or dry inert gas (nitrogen or argon) is highly recommended) to prevent premature curing of the secondary cure mechanism. The spraying should be done with adequate ventilation so that the vapor and mist are carried away from the operator. BrushingHumiSeal®UV500-2may be applied by brush for rework or touch up only. Brush must be cleaned with solvent promptly after use.CuringHumiSeal®UV500-2 is a highly crosslinked coating. In order to achieve maximum crosslinking density, the product must be exposed to the correct spectral output. HumiSeal has modelled the performance of UV500-2 using Arc and Microwave-based UV curing equipment. The table below outlines the minimum required dosage and irradiance values necessary to render HumiSeal®UV500-2 tack free post UV exposure with both equipment types. These figures should provide a tack-free surface.HumiSeal recommends that these figures are for guidance only, and users should assess exact cure requirements with their own systems. These cure recommendations may change as curing technology develops.
|Minimum Dose J/cm2*
|Minimum Irradiance W/cm2*
*Values measured with a Powerpuck II UV radiometer
Heat is also an important component with UV cure, and different systems produce different heat outputs. Higher heat levels allow UV cure at lower dose/irradiance levels. Consequently, HumiSeal recommends that curing is discussed with HumiSeal®Technical staff to ensure the exact customer process being used will meet the coating cure requirements. After UV exposure and return to room temperature, the coating should be tack-free. HumiSeal®UV500-2 contains a reliable secondary moisture cure mechanism that will cure any shadow areas on the assembly within 7 days at ambient moisture.
To flush equipment and clean uncured HumiSeal®UV500-2, non-alcohol-based solvents should be used. HumiSeal®Thinner 521or Thinner 521EU is recommended.
HumiSeal®UV500-2is a highly crosslinked UV cured coating. The cured film has a high degree of environmental and chemical resistance and will be more difficult to remove than traditional conformal coatings. Thermal displacement and mechanical abrasion are suitable options for rework of HumiSeal®UV500-2.
HumiSeal®UV500-2is photosensitive. The product should not be exposed to direct sunlight or full-spectrum fluorescent lighting. HumiSeal®UV500-2should be stored cool below 20°C, to maximize shelf life. Prior to use, allow the product to equilibrate for 24 hours at room temperature. HumiSeal®UV500-2is a moisture curing material and care should be taken to protect process vessels and partial containers from moisture.
Partial containers must be purged with a dry, inert gas such as dry air, nitrogen, or argon before closure, otherwise, premature polymerization by atmospheric moisture will occur.
Application of HumiSeal® Conformal Coatings should be carried out in accordance with local and National Health and Safety regulations. Use only in well-ventilated areas to avoid inhalation of vapours or spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
