Electrolube, part of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions and the leading manufacturer of specialist chemicals for the electronics, automotive and industrial manufacturing industries, today announced that its manufacturing facility in India has won Most Innovative Company of the Year Award and Innovative Conformal Coating Product of the Year Award at the 7th EM Industry Awards. UVCL UV cure coating, a VOC-free option, was selected by a panel of well-known SMT experts for its ultra fast dry-time, environmental properties, low viscosity, ease of application and versatility for a wide range of applications.
The EM Industry Awards serve as benchmarks of excellence, recognising industry leaders in technology, efficiency, environmental benefits and quality for the surface mount assembly sector. The Awards, organised by Electronics Maker, were announced at an exclusive virtual award ceremony, held on 27th October 2021, where winning products were announced for their creativity, advanced nature, and contribution to helping the industry reduce cost, improve quality, increase efficiency, enhance reliability, ensure safety and protect the environment.
Electrolube’s 100% solids coating is one the most environmentally‐friendly conformal coating products available on the market. UVCL became an instant success after launching due to its versatility in different application processes and excellent resistance to common ‘thermal shock’ cycling, moisture vapour, salt-‐spray, solvent and fluid exposure, and condensing environments.
UVCL meets IPC-CC-830 requirements and is UL94 V-0 rated. The coating is highly flexible and cures in seconds with conveyorised UV lamps or within 3 days at ambient temperatures and humidity to ensure cure even in shadowed areas. The single‐component, low‐viscosity UVCL provides a superior ‘sharp-edge’ coverage compared to some other materials utilising a selective coating method.
Padmanabha Shakthivelu, General Manager of Electrolube India, said, “It was an honour to accept this award at such a well-respected event. We are delighted that our facility in Bangalore has been warmly recognised for its commitment to innovation and for our versatile UV cure coating, UVCL, to win Innovative Conformal Coating Product of the Year. Both awards recognise Electrolube’s dedication to the advancement of innovative and high performance conformal coating and electro-‐chemical solutions for the electronics industry, developed with the utmost care to the environment and operator.”
