Testimonials on AIT PRIMA-PROTECT Conformal Coating for Protecting Printed Circuit Boards and Assemblies
VIDEO describing the unique moisture blocking and non moisture-water absorption properties of AIT PRIMA-PROTECT conformal coating in contributing to the unparalleled performance in protecting printed circuit board from damages in salt mist and/or in industrial environment with corrosive ions dissolved in the moisture and acid rains.

Mr. Hugh Baker from CONSENSE Corp. that manufactures CONSERSNOR for sense the onset of condensation on surfaces it attached to such as chilled water pipes found the PRIMA-PROTECT to be the only conformal coating that not only hydrophobic to prevent any condensation but also do not absorb and allow any moisture to penetrate and affect his device.
The CONSENSOR made by CONSENSE Corp. consists of a unique sensing element and a companion electronic printed circuit assembly. “It is imperative that the electronic circuitry never experiences any form of moisture on the circuit board or any of its components-not even the smallest trace amounts.”
“The literature of some of these conformal coatings indicated that they possessed great hydrophobic properties-meaning that they reject water from their surface. Water just beads up and rolls off the surface. ..But there is a related property which is rarely mentioned-hygroscopic or non-hygroscopic. This property relates to the tendency of a material to actually absorb small amounts of moisture into and through its surface when in contact with water or even from water vapor in humid air. In many applications, that property is equally important. We need the conformal coating to be “non-hygroscopic”, meaning it resists the absorption of moisture through its surface- it resists absorbing moisture from the surrounding humidity. Materials having hygroscopic properties are common and that absorbed moisture can have several undesirable effects, particularly in certain types of electronic circuits. Materials having non-hygroscopic-those resisting the moisture absorption, are much less common.”
“We did much testing, using our own printed circuit assemblies as our primary instrument. The non-hygroscopic properties of AI Technology’s CC7090-E proved to be outstanding. We detected no evidence of hygroscopic moisture absorption. The CC7090-E has strong non-hygroscopic properties even with long exposure to humidity of 90%RH (Relative Humidity) and greater. The material is providing the assurance that our CONSENSOR will not be adversely affected by high humidity in its environment. It is our conformal coating of choice.”
Huge Baker added, “It probably should be the choice for many electronic assemblies that may be adversely affected by moisture absorption.” (Hugh Baker, CONSENSE Corp., 207 733 2525, www.CONSENSE.com )
