I'm using urethane conformal coat and have fisheyes and dewetting after coating even though the PWAs have been through the wash cycle twice. I'm looking at using Ionox 13302 in an ultrasonic cleaner as a short term solution until root cause can be id

I currently spray DOW 2620 with my PVA650 without any problems. I do not thin it but I do have a distance between the coating machine and IR oven to provide a flash off period. I notice bubbles only when the flash off time is too short and the coatin

Is this an established process that is just now exhibiting these problems, or is this a brand new process you're just setting up? What is the rest of your process like? What is done to the boards before you coat them? Water washed? Solvent washed? Sa

John, In addtion to the cleaning process you may wnat to look at the masking materials you are using as well. Are you using any temporary masking tape? If so, do the dewetted areas coincide? Some of these tapes use a silicone-based adhesive which wi

Gun wash is another term used for acrylic laquer thinner. We use DuPont 3642SC. We have much success in its use.

You definitely have to be careful with unsealed components and markings/labels. The best you can do is check with datasheets or find an extra assembly to test it out on first. You can also try slowing down your inline to more like 1-2 ft/min and se

Water soluble process, yes. The machine is old and fixed at 4 ft/min by someone way before me. Looking into ways to reverse that to allow for adjusting the conveyor. Trying to determine how the contamination gets onto the boards. So far testing has i

Thank you for replying Phil. We use water only wash at 130°F and at 4 ft/min (about 2 min). They are mostly dried by the hot ait knife and left to air dry until next day. The operators do not wear gloves. When I run a bare board through the same pro

Yes, you must thin Dow CC for any spray operations. We use Dow 2577 daily for multiple customers and we always thin it for spray operations and 2577 is considered medium viscosity. Dow recommends using up to 60% solvent (Xylene). Your 2620 is low vis
