Title: Green coating?
Post by: tpone on April 10, 2008, 00:13:47 AM
you all have seen this very nice green coating for protecting the copper side of the board. I would like to know how this can be done. Is it possible in 'home lab' ?

Actually this is not just for protection. It is a way to isolate the places that we want solder to be applied when the board is placed into solder bath. Otherwise solder would be applied everywhere, including the lines of the pcb.

There are very nice sprays (with or without color) that can apply a really good coating to protect your pcb. Prefer the one with teflon.

It can also protect from corrosion

Yes of course, also for protecting but mainly for isolating
