Corrosion Protection of Electronic Boards By Dip Coated Ecofluor® Fluorinated Thin Films
Remarkable technological advancements have led to the ubiquity of portable devices into all areas of our life. As mobile device performance and functionality has improved, protection against harsh environments (particularly salt water immersion) has become a critical requirement for the lifetime performance of the device.
Our new Ecofluor® system provides electronic component manufacturers with a safe, easy-to-use, and economical alternative to the chemical vapor desposition (CVD) process to protect printed circuit boards (PCB) from corrosion when exposed to fresh and salt water conditions.
Ecofluor® is a cost-effective one part fluorinated system which provides current protection to electronic devices under harsh environments for extended periods of time. Key benefits of Ecofluor® include:
- Thin films can be generated via dip coat in minutes, avoiding the cost and time associated with vapor deposition techniques and spray coating.
- Ecofluor® is low in toxicity, non-ozone depleting, and VOC exempt. It forms chemically resistant and thermally stable transparent thin film.
- Standard electronic IPC test boards with 20 µm coating exhibit no corrosion and virtually no current flow under salt water conditions for one hour.
