Conformal coating ideal for LED applications

25 August 2021 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

AFA optically clear acrylic conformal coating is ideally suited for use as an LED coating or in other commercial applications to protect the PCB from the environment. It maintains excellent clarity with minimal colour temperature shift after prolonged UV exposure, making it an obvious match for an LED coating application. It also provides effective protection in humid environments and flexibility over a wide operating temperature range.


The coating also contains a UV trace which allows inspection of the PCB after coating to ensure complete and even coverage and may be removed for rework using solvents such as Electrolube’s ULS. AFA is also available in pre-mixed versions for atomised spray applicators (AFA-S), inline selective coating machines and non-atomised film coating applicators (AFA-F).
