Semblant Takes on San Diego, Alcohol and Salty Liquids With Two Different Demos Showcasing How Its Conformal Coat Technology Protects Against Liquids

CHANDLER, AZ--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2013) - Semblant is conducting two first-of-its-kind demos illustrating the protective power of its conformal coat process at San Diego's IPC APEX Expo Conference February 19-21, 2013. Semblant's conformal coat protects a printed circuit board from liquids, salts and other corrosive elements. Semblant will be showcasing how its coating surpasses traditional coatings against water, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), and salty liquids.

Key Facts

  • Digital Picture Frame Demo: This demo will showcase how Semblant's conformal coating seals over, in and around all the elements on the board or device at a nano level when a digital picture frame is intermittently attacked with running water.
  • Multiple Substances Demo: In this demo, the conformal coat will protect an active, working circuit board as it is submerged into water, IPA and mixed salts in the form of a margarita. With Semblant's conformal coat, medical electronics, for example, are protected against common cleaning products' such as IPA's harmful effects.
  • Semblant's conformal coat process surpasses traditional coatings to provide superior protection against liquids, salts and other corrosive elements through a radically streamlined and enhanced plasma process. The coating is applied uniformly over all elements on a board or device at the nano level, which is not possible with existing spray or brush coatings. The nano-level seal also enables greater flexibility as it allows boards to be reworked and connected without masking or laser oblation.
