Silicone (Type SR)
Silicone Conformal Coating is a transparent, soft, flexible coating which offers excellent moisture, corrosion and humidity resistance, good dielectric properties, and has exceptional light transmission capabilities for solar applications. It provides good chemical resistance, salt spray resistance and are very flexible. It functions well in high temperate applications and is resistant to UV light and dirt pick-up. This coating can be “solder-through” for easy repair. However, silicones are not solvent soluble and require chemical strippers for removal or repairs. MIL-I-46058C and IPC-CC-830 approved.
Silicone Coating Features:
Stability over a temperature range of usually (-40°C to 200°C)
Soft and flexible, providing minimal impact protection
High dielectric strength
Good moisture, humidity, and UV sunlight barrier
Low surface energy to enable effective penetration under components
