Europlasma Unveiled Nanofics 120® & Nanofics 110® Conformal Nanocoatings at Productronica 2013

Published on 2013-11-26. Author : SpecialChem

Belgium based Europlasma, one of the world leaders in low pressure plasma technology, presents a new family of conformal nanocoatings for the electronics industry under the Nanofics® brand name.

Nanofics® refers to nanoscaled functionalization into the core of complex shaped materials and products. It is Europlasma’s patented and patent pending nanocoating technology platform, first applied on industrial scale in 1996. Two innovative nanocoating types have been designed for conformal coating of electronic devices.

Nanofics 120® coatings are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 120 degrees according to ASTM D5964) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 8 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings deposited by low pressure plasma technology.

Nanofics 110® coatings are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 110 degrees according to ASTM D5964) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 6 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings. The unique aspect of these coatings is that they are completely free from PFOA and PFOS.

Europlasma’s Sales and Product Manager Peter Martens comments: "the Nanofics® conformal coatings can be applied on the printed circuit board (PCB), on individual electronic components, on subassemblies, or on the whole device. Depending on where they are applied they offer several levels of protection for the device. If applied on the subassembly or device level they have shown to give a very good protection against ingress from water or other liquids. If applied on the component level or on the PCB’s the coatings also demonstrate a very good protection against corrosion from aggressive environments such as sweat or salt mist. Moreover these coatings are flexible and can therefore be applied both on rigid and flexible substrates."

Europlasma’s Managing Director Filip Legein adds: "as the true pioneer in nanocoating technology, we are happy to see that 20 years of intensive R&D by the Europlasma team has resulted in a growing number of markets and applications, such as air filtration products, functional textiles, medical devices, and now electronic devices. This has created a steep growth in demand which Europlasma is able to meet with a reliable technology platform, running on industrial scale of equipment."
