HumiSeal 1C55 is a single component, VOC-free, low viscosity, fast thermal curing silicone conformal coating. The low viscosity and long pot life of HumiSeal® 1C55 make it ideal for dipping and spraying. HumiSeal® 1C55 demonstrates excellent flexibility, contains an optical brightener for inspection under black light and is repairable. HumiSeal® 1C55 coating is RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC compliant.
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 which may lead to assembly failures.
A controlled rate of immersion and withdrawal (5-15 cm/min) will ensure even deposition of the coating and ultimately a uniform film.
HumiSeal® 1C55 can be sprayed using conventional spraying equipment. Spray pressure will depend on the specific type of spraying equipment used and operator technique. Spraying should be done in an environment with adequate ventilation so that the vapour and mist are carried away from the operator. The use of thinner is not required or recommended for HumiSeal® 1C55.
HumiSeal® 1C55 may be brushed. Uniformity of the film depends on component density and operator’s technique.
HumiSeal® 1C55 is a thermally cured conformal coating. The actual curing temperature of HumiSeal® 1C55 is dependent upon several parameters such as heat sink characteristics of parts being coated, the type of oven used for curing process, as well as oven loading parameters.
The cure mechanism for HumiSeal® 1C55 may be inhibited by a variety of materials such as amines, acrylates, certain ingredients from latex rubber, etc. It is recommended that process and material compatibility be considered when incorporating HumiSeal® 1C55 into the production environment. Cotton gloves are recommended for operators who will be handling assemblies prior to coating with HumiSeal® 1C55.
