Coating pen repairs damaged circuit boards

The recently launched CircuitWorks overcoat pen from Intertronics is expected to make coating of PCBs especially convenient during manufacture, rework and prototyping, where it enables replacement of permanent solder resist or mask over repaired areas, or where it is damaged or missing.

The overcoat pen is believed to be a handy and quick way to apply an acrylic conformal coating to circuit board tracks, as protection against shorts, moisture, abrasion, fungus and other environmental hazards. It enables quick easy repairs while meeting the requirements of MIL-I-46058C and IPC-A-610D. The acrylic coating contains a fluorescent indicator for visual confirmation of coverage.

Peter Swanson, managing director of Intertronics, explained: "These new pens perform excellently on the workbench or in the tool kits of electronics engineers. They are very convenient for spot coating application on PCBs, whether in production or in 'the field' and are available with our offering of circuit repair products."

Intertronics will be exhibiting at the forthcoming FAST Exhibition, being held at the Williams FI Conference Centre at Grove, Oxfordshire on September 10th. Visitors can also attend a seminar presented by the company on the day. Click the event links on the home page for registration details.
