The low pressure Europlasma process allows advanced nanocoatings to be applied to electronics—from boards to fully assembled devices—for long-term hydrophobic/oleophobic protection.

Uyemura International Corp. (Southington, Conn.) and Europlasma NV (Oudenaarde, Belgium) have formed a partnership to bring advanced vacuum plasma treatment technology (Nanofics) to electronic manufacturing companies and board-makers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The immediate focus of this important partnership is twofold: This low pressure plasma technology will allow electronic manufacturing companies to apply conformal coatings to electronic components, and most notably, to fully assembled products such as headsets, hearing aids and mobile phones. It will also provide an effective and cost-efficient surface finish to protect board surfaces prior to assembly. For this reason, Uyemura says it is an excellent addition to the company’s line of final finishes.

Europlasma will install its plasma system at the Uyemura Tech Center in Southington, Conn., in late October, and train Uyemura technical staff in system operation. In addition to the application of Nanofics nanocoating technology, the system will also be used for low pressure plasma cleaning, etching, and activation.
