Electrolube Receives SMT China VISION Award for its UVCL UV Cure Conformal Coating

Published on 2014-08-13. Author : SpecialChem

Electrolube, one of the leading manufacturers of specialist chemicals for the electronics, automotive and industrial manufacturing industries, has announced that its UVCL UV cure conformal coating has won the 8th SMT China Vision Award in the Conformal Coatings category. The VOC-free coating was selected as Best Assembly Material Product by a panel of well-known SMT experts for its ultrafast dry-time, environmental properties, low viscosity, ease of application and versatility for a wide range of applications.

The SMT Vision Awards serve as benchmarks of excellence, recognizing industry leaders in technology, efficiency, environmental benefits and quality for the surface mount assembly sector. The Awards, organized by SMT China, were announced at the World Expo Center, Shanghai, during NEPCON China, where winning products were judged specifically on their creativity, advanced nature, and contribution to helping the industry reduce cost, improve quality, increase efficiency, enhance reliability, ensure safety and protect the environment.

The 100% solids coating was launched by Electrolube during the second half of 2013 and is one the most environmentally-friendly conformal coating products on the market. UVCL became an instant success after launching due to its versatility in different application processes and excellent resistance to common 'thermal shock' cycling, moisture vapor, salt-spray, solvent and fluid exposure, and condensing environments.

UVCL meets IPC-CC-830 requirements and is UL94 V-0 rated. The coating is highly flexible and cures in seconds with conveyorized UV lamps or within 3 days at ambient temperatures and humidity to ensure cure even in shadowed areas. With a 12-month shelf life, the single-component, low-viscosity UVCL provides superior 'sharp-edge' coverage than other materials with common selective coating methods.

Ron Jakeman, Group Managing Director of Electrolube, said, "It was an honor to accept this award at such a major event and amongst so many industry peers. There were many strong candidates for the award and we are delighted that the panel and readers of SMT China selected UVCL as Best Product in the Conformal Coatings category this year. The award recognizes Electrolube's commitment to the advancement of innovative and high performance conformal coating and electro-chemical solutions for the electronics industry, developed with the utmost care to the environment and operator. "
