A Contract Manufacturer's Quest for.Removal of Cured Conformal Coating Residues from PCBs
In the world of electronics manufacturing, printed circuit boards (PCBs) play a crucial role.
Reliability is a critical aspect of PCB manufacturing, and conformal coating is often used to protect PCBs against moisture-induced failures, creeping currents, electrochemical migration, and much more. Cleaning prior to coating is recommended to ensure proper adhesion, but what about removing coating for rework purposes?
Currently, the most popular options for coating removal include either harsh, hazardous cleaners or manual hand chiseling. Not exactly ideal for high-reliability PCBs.
