Dow Corning 3-1953 is widely used when it comes to silicone based conformal coatings. Low odor, medium viscosity, can be atomized or needle dispensed. We have our operators fill syringe cartridges for any minor touch up.

Thanks, I'll give that a try!

We tried both of these suggestions and the 3-1953 is less viscous than the 3-1944 so it will flow better on the board for our conformal coating application. What cleaning solvent is recommended for cleaning off the auger parts, etc.? I haven't been

Thanks, we'll try this too. We aquired an asymtek millenium for dispensing selectively. It is setup for epoxies with a needle dispense head so we'll try to make it all work for us. One-part silicones seem to be the popular solution.

Great, that is encouraging. I did order a few needle sizes from McMaster to try out when we get the machine setup. What do you recommend for clean up the equipment?

Great; which do you recommend, 10, 20 or 30? Seems to me the 10 is most concentrated and 30 is least concentrated according to the flammability properties table. I'm not sure which would be best and I'd rather not try them all.

Hi folks, I have a conformal coating application where I need the coating to be UV stable for a number of years without any crazing or cracking of the coating. I have looked for such a coating and have come up empty handed. Much of the circuit boar

Oh yeah, so we have a auger valve similar to that on one of our other machines that we use for dispensing SMT glue, and solder paste also. We have a conditioner that we flush it with at EOD when in use, then we just let it sit idle with the condition

Not sure exactly what kind of coverage your looking to get but we use Dow Corning 3-1944, it's room-temp cure and rather thick, (think warm honey). But we have found it useful on several projects. http://www.dowcorning.com/applications/search/produc
