"Which conformal coating has the best chemical composition to deliver all attributes & operational function?"

Article Summary

  • While EVs have attained mainstream status, the availability and reliability of a fast-charging infrastructure continue to be major hurdles to widespread adoption.
  • Charging stations are typically located outside, which makes them vulnerable to external sources, such as voltage transients or electrical surges and the elements.
  • The realistic and economical approach to protecting EVSEs is with conformal coatings.
  • Conformal coatings provide increased dielectric resistance, operational integrity, and protection from corrosive atmospheres and contaminants.
  • Compared to acrylic, silicones, urethane, and epoxy coatings, Parylene has all the properties and characteristics necessary to help advance technologies.
