A picture of your application is worth a million words, but if there is no physical sample available we would need dimensions, list of keep out areas, material choice, market segment (aerospace, military, industrial, medical), if the application is controlled if it is already specified, environment and or end use of product.
Our standard lead time ranges from 3-8 days although we have expedited option available to ensure we meet our customers needs.
We have no expectations. We work with many start up on projects that typically consist of one card or on the other hand, we have multi-tier automotive customer that require 2000-4000 cards per day and everything in between. We remain flexible to meet your needs.
We prefer to be brought into the design as early as possible. There are many things we can highlight along the way to ensure your design in manufacturable when it comes to coating or potting. Throughout the process we can highlight the pros and cons associated with all coating and keep out decisions.
Each of our manufacturing facilities having 14,000 sqft of production space dedicated to coating and potting lines. ECT is one of the largest suppliers within its space. We have built in triple shift flexibility to ensure we can support our customer needs with a rapid response.
We carry an abundance of stock items in which most, if not all, can be found in our “go to” product materials section of the website. Additionally, ECT has developed long term relationships with many suppliers, enabling us to fast track non-stock items that typically carry longer lead times.
The correct coating varies from application to application. We've compiled a set of bulletins listing all chemistries and understanding which is the best for each kind of application. Additionally, we encourage you to reach out to our highly trained application engineers to support for an initial consultation.
ECT has worked with PVA coating and dispense systems for over 20 years which has given us the ability to maximize machine capabilities while maintaining the highest quality and drastically reducing cycle times. Our knowledge of these systems gives us the ability to optimize both on site at our facility or on site at our customers facility.
Parylene is an ultra-thin conformal coating applied in a chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This coating is classified as XY.
Yes, the PCB coated with parylene can be reworked. Options for rework: mechanical (micro-blaster or dry ice), heat (localized heat), chemical (organic solvent). Repairing the coating can be achieved with UR or AR/UR coatings.
This coating is ultra-lightweight with minimal added weight to the PCB surfaces.
Yes, parylene C and N ultra-thin coatings are colorless and transparent.
Parylene C elongation is 200%, and parylene N elongation is 40%.
