UV40

HumiSeal® UV40 is a single component, high solids, UV curable, acrylated polyurethane conformal coating that possesses excellent chemical resistance, surface hardness, flexibility and moisture resistance.  The material is tack-free after exposure to UV light. A secondary moisture cure mechanism will cure unexposed areas of the coating within 2-3 days at ambient conditions.  The coating fluoresces under UV light to allow for coating inspection and can be applied by selective coating equipment. HumiSeal® UV40 coating is recognized under UL File Number E105698, and is MIL-I-46058C qualified, and IPC-CC-830 and RoHS Directive 2011/65/EC compliant.

Conformal coatings can be successfully applied to substrates that have been cleaned prior to coating and also to substrates assembled with low residue, “no clean” assembly materials. Users should perform adequate testing to confirm compatibility between the conformal coating and their particular assembly materials, process conditions and cleanliness level. Please contact HumiSeal® for additional information.

Spraying
HumiSeal® UV40 can be applied via standard selective coating equipment or by conventional hand spray equipment. The source air used for spraying must be dry (a dry inert gas is highly recommended) to prevent premature curing of the secondary cure mechanism.  The spraying should be done with adequate ventilation so that the vapor and mist are carried away from the operator.

Brushing
HumiSeal® UV40 may be applied by brush for rework or touch up only. Brush must be cleaned with solvent promptly after use.

Clean Up
To flush equipment and clean uncured HumiSeal® UV40, non-alcohol based solvents should be used. HumiSeal® Thinner 521 or Thinner 521EU is recommended.

Curing
HumiSeal® UV40 is a highly cross linked coating. In order to achieve maximum cross linking density, the product must be exposed to the correct spectral output. Humiseal has modelled the performance of UV40 using Arc and Microwave based UV curing equipment. The table below outlines the required dosage and irradiance values necessary to render HumiSeal® UV40 tack free post UV exposure with both equipment types. Minimum figures should provide a tack free surface. The maximum recommendation represents highest tested values by Humiseal. The cure recommendations may change as curing technology develops.

Heat is also an important component with UV cure, and different systems produce different heat outputs. Higher heat levels allow UV cure at lower dose/irradiance levels. Consequently, Humiseal recommend that curing is discussed with HumiSeal® Technical staff to ensure the exact customer process being used will meet the coating cure requirements. After UV exposure and return to room temperature the coating should be tack free.

HumiSeal® UV40 contains a reliable secondary moisture cure mechanism which will cure any shadow areas on the assembly within 7 days at ambient moisture.

HumiSeal® UV40 was designed to be cured using a microwave UV oven equipped with an “H” style bulb. Arc systems can cure HumiSeal® UV40 however care must be taken during the equipment selection process to ensure minimum dosage and irradiance values obtained will properly cure the coating. Because of the variations possible in curing equipment type and configuration, it is strongly recommended that you contact HumiSeal Technical Support to discuss your equipment and process in detail.

Rework
HumiSeal® UV40 is a highly cross linked UV cured coating.  The cured film has a high degree of environmental and chemical resistance and will be more difficult to remove than traditional conformal coatings.  Thermal displacement, mechanical abrasion and, where available, HumiSeal® Stripper 1100 are suitable options for rework of HumiSeal® UV40.
