Visit Productronica 2023
We spent one day visiting Productronica in Munich. We found a super busy show with lots of interesting suppliers, partners and customers. We picked up a lot of “homework” from many interesting conversations. Who would have thought that a trade fair that we have visited so often would always produce something new.
ABchimie UV light curing material got UL qualification
UL qualification for our conformal coating
The latest in the ABchimie range of protective conformal coating, ABchimie 836 UV has passed UL746E qualification. Available in LED or UV mercury version, low viscosity and applicable in film coater or spray, this conformal coating is very easy to apply and will ensure the protection of your electronic throughout its life.
Peelable UV light curable masking material
ABchimie is launching a masking material called UV Peelable.
This new product cures in just a few seconds under a UV light source.
This is a significant time saving compared to the use of previous masking materials made of natural or synthetic latex, which require drying times of hours.
Immediately after application and curing, the masked assembly can be varnished. After the varnish has dried, it can be easily removed from the protected areas without leaving any traces. It is simply peeled off.
Thus, the masking material UV Peelable offers a very high production speed to mask PCBA before applying varnish or silicone. The product has been developed solvent and ammonia free and is odourless. This is highly appreciated by users. The UV Peelable is available in a 30CC syringe. It can be applied from this by machine or with a hand press. Curing by a 395nm UV LED light source with an intensity of min 1500mJ/cm² for max. 2mm layer thickness and 6000mJ/cm² for max. 5mm layer thickness. HG light sources are also possible. The exposure must cover the entire material, otherwise no curing will take place. This is especially important for deep sockets. UV Peelable is the perfect combination of temporary protection, productivity enhancement and responsible innovation. Available at Puretecs.
ABchimie and Puretecs did some tests together with the peelable coating.
You can see it here in a short video in real time: sticking, UV curing and peeling off the coating.

smtconnect 2022 - panel discussion "conformal coating"
Moderator: productronic editor-in-chief Dipl.-Ing. Petra Gottwald
With participants from Siemens, Zestron, Factronix and Puretecs.
"From practice for practice - Why is conformal coating important?" - under this slogran the trade journal productronic invites to the panel discussion on the second day of the trade fair, 11.05.2022 at 11:00 am.
At the trade fair forum, practical examples from the assembly production will be presented that successfully deal with the conformal coating of electronic assemblies. What can be done to protect electronics from damaging conditions?
Stephan Ballhaus from Puretecs will discuss with the other participants the different requirements for conformal coatings and the appropriate process for this in each case, including curing by UV light.
