“Conformal Coating protects an electronic assembly like a matador’s cape stops a bull.” - Scott Reisfield - Chief Marketing Officer, LMI
LPO bonds to the electronic assembly, like conformal coating. LPO offers more substantial physical protection and guards against dust, water and vibration.
For virtually the same cost as conformal coating and much less than UV cure, get protection you can count on from LPO.
|Failure issue||Conformal Coating||LPO|
|Vibration and shock||Offers no additional protection against vibration and shock. Components can fall off of assembly.||Helps to bond components to the assembly. Failure due to vibration and shock significantly reduced.|
|Dust||Dust build up on assembly can lead to shorts.||Dust does not build up on assembly, so dust does not cause board level shorts.|
|Impurities||Impurities introduced during production remain on assembly and can lead to corrosion over time.||LPO process flushes impurities off of assembly, leading to virtually no corrosion.|
|Heat||Housing traps air around assembly, which may lead to heat related failures.||LPO material is thermally conductive. Improved heat dissipation.|
|Cure||Air cure for approximately one hour or UV cure under lights.||No cure time.|
