Q1: We are in the design phase of a new project and were wondering if you could provide us with the estimated cost of conformal coating a PCB assembly?

The cost of actually applying the conformal coating to the assembly will vary greatly by application method and projected volumes. The material costs for the Conformal Coating itself are very low and will normally be less than $0.001 per square inch of board surface for a 1mil dry film thickness. This may vary slightly dependent upon the Conformal Coating used and can be further reduced dependent upon your purchasing volumes.

Overall, the application of a quality Conformal Coating is the cheapest way to insure the long term reliability of your printed Circuit assemblies. Please contact HumiSeal directly for further assistance in determining your actual Conformal Coating costs at our Contact Us page.
