HumiSeal®, a leading manufacturer and distributor of conformal coatings has announced that Jeff Sargent, Director of R&D will be taking part in the upcoming High-Reliability and Conformal Coating Conference being organised by the IPC & SMTA. The 3-day event will be held at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg, Illinois from the 18th – 20th November 2014. The event includes tutorials and technical conferences giving delegates the opportunity to hear directly from experts on the challenges of cleaning and selecting the correct conformal coating.
What will I Learn from HumiSeal?
Jeff will be presenting as part of a forum on “case studies” of conformal coatings. The presentation will focus specifically on proper coating selection and process set up for UV curable coatings and their impact on coating performance. The coatings in this instance were the popular UV40 and UV40-250 materials being utilized within the automotive industry.
HumiSeal’s range of UV curing products has seen significant growth since its introduction in 2005, as electronics manufacturers around the world discover the benefits of using them in their medium and high-volume manufacturing processes. These benefits include:
- Snap cure
- Fast cycle times and throughput
- Thermal, chemical and mechanical resistance
- VOC free enabling compliance with increasingly stringent environmental legislation.
As conductors and circuit traces become narrower the question of what is acceptably clean for one industry segment may be unacceptable in others. The IPC and SMTA, High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference will cover technological developments in all areas of cleaning and coating applied to electronics assemblies. The event will include a technical conference, two half-day tutorials, networking activities and tabletop exhibits. The tutorials are designed to provide practical information on materials, equipment and methodologies at the basic-to-intermediate levels. The technical conference will feature advanced-level presentations from subject-matter experts, emphasizing case studies of real-world problems along with solutions.
Jeff Sargeant, R&D Director for Chase Corporation, commented:
“HumiSeal has been working hard behind the scenes and our investment in new technology and product research means that we can offer real solutions from across the chemistry spectrum. This opportunity to work with the IPC and SMTA alongside others from this are of production will allow HumiSeal to help customers understand the importance of selecting the correct conformal coating for their applications as well as working with them through any issues they may be having. Our legacy conformal coatings continue to be popular. However, technology advances and test environments mean that we could not sit on our laurels but had to engineer a coating that would meet the increasingly aggressive test and approval process being faced by us all. We are completely focused on continuing to deliver our customers a sustainable, competitive advantage by staying ahead of emerging technologies”.
