Dow Introduces DOWSIL™ CC-3122 Conformal Coating for Reliable, Fast-Curing, Solvent-Free Protection of Printed Circuit Boards
New product is first in what will be a new portfolio of high-performance, fast-curing, solvent-free conformal coatings
DOWSIL CC-3122 Conformal Coating offers a very low viscosity (80 cp) and a low coefficient of kinetic friction to flow freely into fine pitches and narrow gaps or spaces on PCBs and components. This faster-flowing, moisture-cured material supports manual or automated spraying for faster processing times. Oven heat is not required, but the optional application of mild heat can dramatically accelerate its already rapid cure rates.
After cure, DOWSIL CC-3122 Conformal Coating delivers high hardness (75 Shore A) to protect sensitive board components. Its post-cure surface exhibits low tack to minimize dust pickup. It further provides controlled volatility for preventing silicone contamination and contains an aid for preventing against sulfur corrosion. DOWSIL CC-3122 Conformal Coating has been tested and validated to meet automotive industry standards for reliability.
The material is available to Dow Performance Silicones’ customers worldwide.
