Conformal Coatings

Enhanced protection for enhanced PCB performance

An Electrolube brand conformal coating product on printed circuit board undergoing UV cure.
  • UL, MIL and IPC-CC-830 approved
  • Solvent removable and solvent resistance coatings
  • Acrylic, Silicone, Polyurethane and Hybrid Materials
  • UV cure and water-based options available
  • UV trace to aid inspection
  • Thinners and masking products

Conformal coatings are designed to protect printed circuit boards and related equipment from their environment. Typically applied at 25-75μm, these coatings ‘conform’ to the contours of the board allowing for excellent protection and coverage, ultimately extending the working life of the PCB.

The use of conformal coatings is particularly important in automotive, military, aerospace, marine, lighting, industrial and green energy applications. Due to the rapid expansion of the electronics industry, conformal coatings are also finding their way into the domestic and mobile electronics industries, providing the necessary combination of high performance and reliability within a vast array of electronic devices.

Conformal coatings can be used in a wide range of environments to protect printed circuit boards from moisture, salt spray, chemicals and temperature extremes in order to prevent corrosion, mould growth and electrical failures, for example. The protection provided by conformal coatings allows for higher power and closer track spacing, in turn enabling designers to meet the demands of miniaturisation and reliability.

Electrolube is among the world’s foremost experts in the formulation and application of conformal coatings designed to meet international approvals (including European and American military specifications). The range of products currently available comprises acrylics, silicones, polyurethanes, hybrid chemistries and environmentally friendly options.

Electrolube can offer both transparent and pigmented coatings to improve or camouflage the appearance of printed circuit boards. The range also includes a number of ancillary products to complement the use of our conformal coatings, including thinners and removers, peelable coating masks and thixotropic materials for dam and fill applications.

Modified Alkyd

DCE - SCC3 Elastomer Gel

SCC3 Elastomer Gel


Product code: DCE0.75L

DCE is a thixotropic version of DCA modified alkyd conformal coating designed to solve unwanted coating migration due to the capillary effect. It has been formulated for easy application using a robotic dispensing machine for large or hard to coat components. It is best suited to be used alongside DCA providing the complete coating solution.

Key Properties:
  • Thixotropic gel
  • Excellent chemical and solvent resistance
  • Extremely wide operating temperature range
  • Easy and consistent robotic dispensing
  • Solves unwanted coating migration due to the capillary effect
  • Designed for use with Electrolube DCA
  • RoHS-2 Compliant
  • UL746C-QMJU2:
  • DEF-STAN 59/47 (Issue 4)
  • IPC-CC-830
