Conformal Coating Assessment for Better Environmental Protection, Phase 2

0

Reading time ( words)

The standard method of evaluating conformal coatings is to apply coatings to actual hardware and determine the time to failure. This method is inconvenient and slow, often taking several months, making it an impractical means of testing.

The recently completed Phase 2 of the Conformal Coatings Evaluation Project for Better Environmental Protection compared the results of three test environments that provided significantly shorter test times using Cu and Ag thin film metrologies The project team tested three commonly available conformal coatings using flowers of sulfur (FOS) and mixed flow gas (MFG) environments as well as iodine vapor testing (IVT). FoS and MFG environments have proven to be rapid tests for quantitatively characterizing conformal coatings, while IVT can qualitatively characterize conformal coatings in 30-60 minutes. This enables manufacturers to dramatically speed up product development and evaluation cycle times.

To learn more about the Phase 2 testing experiences and results, please join this webinar. The project team will also share what they have learned from studying the use of terahertz as a non-destructive technique for coating thickness measurement and discuss potential future work.

In this engaging 11-part micro-webinar series, experts Graham Naisbitt and Chris Hunt examine the history of electrochemical migration (ECM) influences and the evolution of the use of surface insulation resistance testing ( SIR) that have been developed over the past 25 months. years by GEN3 and its association with the British National Physical Laboratory. GEN3 and NPL created the standard which has now been widely used around the world since the turn of the millennium. The ninth episode, “SIR, Additional Information” can be viewed in just under four minutes. The presenters discuss the duration of the tests, the number of coupons and the suitability of using the SIR for the qualification tests. Also covered in this segment: SIR and objective evidence.

Viewers will receive an introduction to SIR and ECM, including the goals, why we use standards, and why ‘objective evidence’ should be used instead of ‘cleaning’.
