Automotive electronic assemblies continue to become an increasingly sophisticated and important aspect of both the functionality and reliability of modern automobiles.
These assemblies continue to be placed in ever more demanding end-use environments, where the risk of degradation in performance, due to extraneous factors such as humidity, salt-spray, noxious gases and other sources of corrosion continues to increase rapidly.
The costs of failure (both direct fiscal from recalls and longer-term to brand equity) and the competitive need to provide longer warranties and greater levels of reliability, drive the need to increase the Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) to the maximum possible duration.
Increasingly, conformal coating is becoming one of the most important methodologies requested by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and used by Tier 1 – Tier 3 automotive electronics suppliers) to prevent corrosion and degradation of assemblies in use, thus maximizing reliability and minimizing warranty claims due to extraneous corrosion.
We work with leading suppliers of conformal coatings to the automotive industry for in-cabin electronics, under-hood electronics and exterior electronic applications, supplying every major OEM, through multiple Tier 1 – Tier 3 suppliers.
With the widest range of high performance conformal coatings, from every major type of protective chemistry, including Acrylic, Urethane and Silicone, you can be certain that Conformal Tech has a high-performance solution for your specific application. With recent changes in OEM requirements related to new car outgassing and ISO14001 compliance requirements amongst their subcontractors, Conformal Tech has a wide range of environmentally compliant, low-outgassing , solvent-free materials, in addition to a wide range of traditional solvent-borne chemistries. Whatever your requirements, Conformal Tech has the solution.
