Enhanced protection for enhanced PCB performance
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.More info > Download product selector chart > Download product brochure >
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.

HPA is a high performance acrylic conformal coating specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of applications such as the defence and aerospace industries. HPA is fast drying and flexible while maintaining excellent characteristics in the most challenging of environments.
HPA has a transparent finish which maintains optical clarity making it a good choice for LEDs operating in harsh environments.
HPA can be sprayed, dipped or brushed, recommendations for application can be found in the TDS below. If you still require further information please don't hesitate to get in touch.
We also provide HPASP which has been specifically formulated to provide a viscosity between 60-100mPa s for use in selective coating and spray equipment. Choosing HPASP can improve production efficiency by eliminating the need to use thinners.
