KEMPEN, GERMANY -- Dr. Manfred Suppa's new tome on conformal coatings for electronics assemblies is now available in English.

”Schutzlacke für elektronische Baugruppen,” or Conformal Coatings for Electronics Applications -- Fields of Use, Requirement Profiles, Characteristics, Processing, provides the latest theoretical knowledge in a comprehensive and illustrative manner while also describing practical applications.

It was written by Suppa, head of research and development at Lackwerke Peters, in response to the need for a reference book on protective coatings for printed circuit boards.

The 500-page book explains use of conformal coatings under defined operating conditions, focusing on the complex interactions between the material used, the manufacturing process employed, the quality control and reliability studies for conformal coatings. Practically relevant chemical and physical backgrounds relating to corrosion and failure mechanisms of electronics assemblies are discussed and explained. Likewise, failure mechanisms and their causes are portrayed in detail and, by means of many examples, suggestions as to the coice of conformal coatings and assessment of protective lacquers given.

Topics range from chemical and physical characteristics of the polymers formulated in the coating materials, via the necessary assessment of application methods and drying processes up to the physical background of loads for the assembly either existing or to be expected, and their influence on the selection of coating materials and/or coating processes.
