Tin Whisker Risk Management by Conformal Coating

Linda Woody, William Fox; Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control; Lockheed Martin Corporation

The objective of this study is to evaluate conformal coatings for mitigation of tin whisker growth. The conformal coatings chosen for the experiment are acrylic, polyurethane and parylene. Also included in this paper are tin whisker inspection results of tin-plated braiding and wire that was exposed to an environment of 50°C with 50% relative humidity for over five years.
