Electrolube, the global manufacturer of specialist electro-chemicals, has announced the launch of seven new generation UV cure conformal coating products at this year’s IPC APEX EXPO, which takes place from January 26th to the 31st, at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
The exciting new UVCL range of UV Cure Conformal coatings is expected to take the US market by storm. Senior management from the company’s US operation in Texas, HK Wentworth America, Inc, and Electrolube’s senior technical team, will be available to discuss the advanced new UV cure coating range, as well as encapsulation resin and thermal management solutions, with visitors on booth 2201.
Electrolube’s brand new UV cure coatings are designed to offer the highest level of protection for electronic circuitry with an exceptionally fast processing time. The range features UVCL, a single component, medium-low viscosity dual cure coating with secondary moisture cure, for complete cure in shadow areas.
Available in 5L packaging, UVCL is VOC-free, non-flammable and demonstrates excellent electrical properties. The coating provides a wide operating temperature range and is ready to use for selective spray application.
UVCL-P is the Plus version of UVCL. It is a transparent, flexible coating which is extremely resistant to thermal shock. The main benefits of UVCL-P are the improved coverage and protection achieved, along with a guaranteed chemical cure in 6 hours thanks to its unique secondary cure mechanism.
Further UV Cure coating products, also featuring secondary moisture cure, will be launched at the show and include a brand new film coating product, UVCL-FC, which enables the application of even thinner coatings and faster curing line speeds. UVCL-FC is a low viscosity, fast-curing UV formulation for rapid processing. The company will also showcase a new UV cure coating specifically for LED applications. The UVCL-LED coating is also a low viscosity coating that enables rapid cure with low energy 365nm LED lamps.
UVCL-HV is a high viscosity UV curable material, designed to provide better coverage of component leads and exposed metal surfaces during dispensing applications and Electrolube’s UVCL-Gel is a no-flow gel version of UVCL, designed for sealing connectors and other areas that must not be coated.
Ron Jakeman, Managing Director of Electrolube, comments, “In order to meet the different requirements of electronics, LED and automotive manufacturers, we have invested in finding solutions to speed up production with ever higher levels of performance. The new UV cure coating range is an unbeatable range of conformal coating materials and we are very excited about launching the new range to the US market.
If we examine existing UV cure systems on the market, the majority require minimum moisture secondary cure times of 8-14+ days, whereas the new UVCL range facilitates tremendous reductions in the amount of Work In Progress.”
