Plasma Ruggedized Production and Engineering Services-Los Angeles Metro Area
Performance production and engineering services can enhance the longevity of sensitive applications by protecting against corrosion, contamination, and more. Plasma Ruggedized Solutions (PRS) is a leading provider of parylene coatings and other quality production and engineering services with over 20 years of experience.
High-Quality Parylene Coatings
Parylene coating services introduce a high-performance coating to provide additional protection to vital components across a variety of industries. Using vacuum deposition, PRS parylene coatings offer an incredibly thin, pinhole-free, and uniform film penetrating tight spaces to 0.01mm.
Our parylene coatings are chemically inert, biocompatible, and FDA-approved for use in medical implants, as well as compliant with the requirements of NASA Low Outgassing materials. Parylene coatings adhere to a range of substrates, including glass, metal, plastic, elastomer, and more, providing high-quality chemical resistance and insulative properties for various applications across industries.
Polyurethane PCB Coatings
PRS offers polyurethane PCB coatings in single and two-component formulations. Single-component polyurethane conformal coatings offer extended pot life but a longer cure cycle; in contrast, two-component polyurethane PCB coatings feature a quick cure time but a shorter pot life than single-component formulations. Single- and two-component polyurethane coatings are easily applied and provide excellent moisture, chemical, and abrasion resistance. Polyurethane PCB coatings are ideal for aerospace applications or applications where exposure to vapors is a standard concern.
Electronic Potting Services Los Angeles County
Potting and encapsulating electronics protect them from various environmental and security threats. Electronic potting services ensure superior performance and longevity by providing increased protection against shock and vibration, corrosion, dust, moisture, and chemical contaminants, as well as tampering or reverse engineering. PRS can encapsulate any quantity of applications from first articles to scaled production. Electronic potting services are available using a range of materials, including processes such as:
- Epoxy Coatings
- Silicone Coatings
- Urethane Coatings
- Silicone Potting & Encapsulation
- Acrylic Coatings
Plasma Ruggedized Solutions offers electronic potting services for PCBs, electromechanical devices, electronic subsystems and systems, printed circuit assemblies, and primed steel, aluminum, or plastic surfaces.
Manual and automated Ball Grid Array (BGA) underfill services provide enhanced protection for circuit board assemblies. PRS underfill services detect potentially sensitive components in an assembly needing underfill and then determine an appropriate material, like the Plasma Ruggedized proprietary solution of Kronos-10.
BGA underfill is a type of surface-mount packaging for circuit board assemblies, increasing protection against damage from harsh environmental conditions and heavy shock or vibrations, as well as reducing thermal stresses while improving reliability. Our BGA underfill services are excellent for sensitive circuit board assemblies and electronics in aircraft, automotive, and medical industries.
Plasma Etching Treatments for PCBs
Drilling processes in circuit board manufacturing can leave a residue that affects performance. Plasma etching treatments for PCBs include plasma desmear and plasma etchback to remove residual resin deposits from drilled holes in printed circuit boards. Using controlled chemical reactions, plasma desmear ensures reliability through resin removal. Plasma etchback uses a similar process but provides the added benefit of removing some surrounding substrate on PCB interconnects to promote enhanced electrical contact between interconnects and copper plating.
In addition to plasma etching treatments for PCBs, Plasma Ruggedized offers several plasma treatments to remove fluorine and other elements from challenging materials, gold activation, carbon removal, and more.
