Hot on the heels of the launch of revolutionary two-part Conformal Coating range (2K series), Electrolube are unveiling a brand new kit to mix, dispense and spray 2K300 Conformal Coating. The new kit offers some key advantages for customer trials and spray-testing requirements as it facilitates full testing and evaluation of the 2K300 series without taking existing dispensing equipment out of production.
2K300 is a two-part system, offering high flexibility and low stress across an operating temperature range of -40°C to +130°C. The coating is hydrophobic and highly resistant to condensation, salt mist and chemicals and is fully IPC-CC-830 compliant.
Throughout the development of the entire 2K range, Electrolube has worked closely with selective coating machine manufacturers to ensure that formulations are optimised for application using commercially available dispensers. The new 2K300 Kit from Electrolube takes this one step further enabling easy testing and small production volumes to be coated without the necessity for dispensing equipment.
Head of Electrolube's Conformal Coatings Division, Phil Kinner, comments: “Electrolube can offer a Conformal Coating for virtually every type of application and this easily assembled kit will allow small production trials of our 2K300 series without a specialist dispenser. The kit comprises a resin kit, dilution fluid and a ready assembled aerosol for dispensing. It is designed as a one-time use kit.”
Electrolube Managing Director, Ron Jakeman, comments: “Electrolube is fast becoming the go-to resource for specialist technical solutions that solve customers’ manufacturing problems and help them bring high-quality products to market faster. This new kit will not only allow customers to trial our 2K300 solution, but is also ideally placed to cope with small production volumes.”
