Conformal Coatings: Silicones and Electronics
Long-term, reliable protection of sensitive circuits and components has become increasingly more important in many delicate and demanding electronic applications. Silicones function over a wide temperature and humidity range as durable dielectric insulation, as barriers against environmental contaminants, and as stress-relieving shock and vibration absorbers. In addition to sustaining their physical and electrical properties over a broad range of operating conditions, silicones are resistant to ozone and ultraviolet degradation and have good chemical stability. Most Dow Corning silicones contain significantly less solvent than organic coatings and are available in a wide variety of cure systems.
