Does anybody run conformal coating process using UV cure varnish? We have a long experience on solvented urethane coating material but switching to solventless is unknown for us. Could you recommand vendors for UV curing oven? Thanks

We use one quite often. Our machine is a Uvitron Conveyor 40 as we are a large coating house and this allows us to process many boards. Dymax also maufactures and sells machines as well. Humiseal and Dymax both manufacture UV coatings. Emerson Cuming

We're looking to add conformal coating to some of our pcb's which range from 2x2" to around 6x6". I would like to use a coating material that is not nasty smelling requiring ventilation or filtration if possible. Are there conformal materials that ar

Thanks, I'll give that a try!

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, 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.
