Application of HumiSeal® 1C48
Cleanliness of the substrate is of extreme importance for the successful application of a conformal coating. Contamination under the coating could cause problems that may lead to assembly failures. For best performance, surfaces should be free of moisture, dirt, wax, grease, flux residues and all other contaminants. If this product will be applied over “no clean” assembly materials, the user should conduct adequate testing to verify compatibility and reliability of the coated assembly.
1C48 is designed for application without additional thinning. Solvents or other thinners should not be mixed with 1C48. 1C48 may be applied by spray, brushing, flow coating or dipping. The time required to reach a tack free state is dependent on ambient conditions such as temperature and relative humidity. The processing guidelines contained in this document were obtained with an ambient relative humidity of 50%.
Uniformity of the film depends on component density and operator’s technique.
A controlled rate of immersion and withdrawal (5-15 cm/min) will ensure even deposition of the coating and ultimately a uniform film. Blanketing dip tanks with an inert gas such as nitrogen can extend pot life.
HumiSeal® 1C48 may be applied using conventional spraying equipment. Spraying should be done in an environment with adequate ventilation so that the vapour and mist are carried away from the operator. The use of thinner is not required or recommended for HumiSeal® 1C48.
When HumiSeal® 1C48 stored in original containers at 5 ºC to 40 ºC, the shelf life is expected to be 12 months. If coating is partially used, the container should be purged with dry nitrogen prior to resealing. Once opened, refrigerated storage at below 10 ºC is recommended. Prior to use, allow the product to equilibrate for 24 hours at room temperature (above 16 ºC).
Application of HumiSeal® Conformal Coatings should be carried out in accordance with local and National Health and Safety regulations.
Use only in well-ventilated areas to avoid inhalation of vapours or spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Consult MSDS/SDS prior to use.
