NPL – Characterisation & Testing of Hydrophobic & Water Resistant Coatings – Next Generation in Coating Technology

September 18, 2018 @ 6:30 am – 8:00 am

In preparation for the event and to ensure you are equipped to get the maximum benefit from the event, please read our simple Webinar Guidelines

The application of electronics into new and increasingly harsh environments has paved the way for the development of a new generation of hydrophobic and water resistant coatings. Whilst traditional conformal coatings have been highly successful, they still absorb some moisture due to their polymeric nature. Issues have also arisen in terms of the coverage of fine details. The application of a hydrophobic coating, on its own or in addition to the conformal coatings may prove a potential solution to overcome these issues. This webinar looks at the application of these hydrophobic coatings both to a bare board and deposited on top of a conformal coating

The webinar will cover:

Hydrophobic and water resistant coatings
Surface insulation resistance (SIR) humidity tests
Condensation testing
Water contact angle and surface energy tests
Future development work

The webinar will run for between 45-60min with question and answer session. The webinars are limited to 100 delegates/companies. A copy of each of the slides presented and links to NPL reports will be provided after the webinar
