Greetings...I have a customer that has an assembly that is conformal coated with Humiseal 1A33. This assembly has some components (resistors and FET's) that heated up during operation and has discolored the conformal coating around their location.

Help, experiencing discolor of a white solder resist paint after reflow of 250 degree, it turned yellow. Have tried many paints, no luck. Anyone knows one that wouldn't change color and holds the white nicely? Thanks for your support in advance.
