3M has launched the Novec EGC-2702 surface modifier coating, which provides economic and fast protection against moisture and corrosion in the manufacture and assembly of electronics.

A cost-effective alternative to traditional conformal coatings, Novec EGC-2702 can be applied and dried within seven minutes, according to the company.

It is also non-flammable and is designed to help electronics companies adhere to environmental, health and safety requirements.

Available exclusively in the UK and Ireland from Acota, Novec EGC-2702 is targeted at electronics environments involving the coating of sensitive components, such as circuit boards.

Particular target markets include automotive, telecommunications, military and aerospace equipment.

Novec EGC-2702 removes the need to mask surface areas – such as connection points – during the coating process, resulting in reduced time and labour and the associated costs.

The new coating cures in 40 minutes, while alternatives – for example acrylic-, silicone- and urethane-based coatings – can take three hours to one week to cure.

Novec EGC-2702 can be cured at room temperature or with the aid of additional heat.

Once applied, Novec EGC-2702 forms a transparent layer of just one micron, yet is waterproof and repellent against aqueous solutions, oils and synthetic fluids in temperatures up to +200C.

Future repairs can be carried out to the electronics component without the need to remove the coating.

Novec EGC-2702 is non-flammable, thus eliminating the need for electrical equipment used in the drying process to be classified as flameproof or ‘intrinsically safe’.

Due to the reduced drying and curing time, the volume of equipment and storage required is a third in comparison to conformal coatings – this is important in environments where floor space is limited.

This also helps to minimise energy consumption.

Novec EGC-2702 is a fluoropolymer dissolved in Novec 7200 hydrofluorether (HFE), developed by 3M.

The material is just one of a range of HFEs supplied by the company as part of its aim to provide manufacturers with speciality fluids designed to reduce the impact on the environment and to conform with legislation.

Novec EGC-2702 has zero ozone-depleting potential and has a high occupational exposure limit of 200 parts per million.
