Application of HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR
Cleanliness of the substrate is of extreme importance for the successful application of a conformal coating. Surfaces must be free of moisture, dirt, wax, grease, flux residues and all other contaminants. Contamination under the coating could cause problems that may lead to assembly failures.
HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR should be applied by standard selective coating equipment. The source air used for spraying must be dry (a dry inert gas is highly recommended) to prevent premature curing of the secondary cure mechanism. The spraying should be done with adequate ventilation so that the vapour and mist are carried away from the operator.
To flush equipment and clean uncured HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR, non-alcohol based solvents should be used. HumiSeal® Thinner 600 is recommended.
HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR is a highly cross linked UV cured coating. The cured film has a high degree of environmental and chemical resistance and will be more difficult to remove than traditional conformal coatings.
Thermal displacement and mechanical abrasion are suitable options for rework of HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR.
HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR is photosensitive. The product should not be exposed to direct sunlight or full spectrum fluorescent lighting. HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR should be stored away from excessive heat, in tightly closed opaque containers at 0 to 25°C to ensure maximum shelf life is achieved. Prior to use, allow the product to equilibrate for 24 hours at room temperature. HumiSeal® UV40-SOLAR is a moisture curing material and care should be taken to protect process vessels and partial containers from moisture. Partial containers must be purged with a dry, inert gas such as dry air, nitrogen or argon before closure, otherwise premature polymerization by atmospheric moisture will occur.
Application of HumiSeal® Conformal Coatings should be carried out in accordance with local and National Health and Safety regulations.
Use only in well-ventilated areas to avoid inhalation of vapours or spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Consult MSDS/SDS prior to use.
