AIT conformal coatings designed to protect electronics in extreme environments

PRINCETON, N.J., 10 Oct. 2014. Traditional acrylic, epoxy, and polyurethane protective coatings, commonly called conformal coatings, are not hydrophobic and do not adequately protect electronic and electrical devices from heavy moisture and are particularly susceptible to degradation in salt-fog environments, according to AI Technology (AIT) officials in Princeton, N.J. Similarly, silicone-based conformal coatings, while hydrophobic to water, allow for very high moisture penetration and are susceptible to moisture and salt-fog induced corrosion.
