Reusable conformal coating masking boots
Using conformal coating masking boots in protecting printed circuit boards (PCBs) from application errors is a low cost, highly reliable solution.
The Masking Boots are completely reusable (over 200 times in normal process)
They can be used for both Parylene and liquid conformal coating processes.
Why use reusable conformal coating masking boots?
The use of other materials such as masking tapes, dots and liquid latex can be an effective process in protecting components from ingress of conformal coating.
However, the masking can be labour intensive, difficult and time consuming.
Recyclable masking boots offer a labour saving alternative in both the masking and de-masking stages of the coating process. This saves you time and money.
Three reasons conformal coating masking boots save you money
Here are three simple reasons that can leave you saving up to 80% of your costs compared to masking tape:
- Masking time in reduced. Masking boots can be 4-5 times quicker than masking tape.
- De-masking time is reduced. Again much quicker to remove boots
- Masking boots don’t leak. So less repair.
This means you can save a lot of money very quickly when switching to masking boots.
Case study: Diamond MT, Pennsylvania, USA
Diamond MT, a conformal coating and Parylene coating service provider found they saved 60% of their current costs by switching to the SCH range of conformal coating masking boots.
Sean Horn, Diamond MT, explains how they did it…..
“We had initially wanted to try SCH’s conformal coating masking boots for price savings. However, once we began to work with Lee on our specific masking application, we realised that we could extend the life of our boots over 200%. We switched immediately!
We then realised the importance of working with someone who understands coatings. We will not being going back to our previous supplier.”

Its as simple as 1,2,3…..

Why use conformal coating masking?
Many companies utilise conformal coating masking materials such as tapes, dots and masking boots to protect certain areas of their printed circuit boards from conformal coatings during application. This is because a lot of components on printed circuit board must remain uncoated.
The purpose of the conformal coating masking materials is to prevent migration of the conformal coatings into components and keep out areas.
Thin Film Partners provide a range of tapes, dots and masking boots that meet the highest standards required for both liquid conformal coating and Parylene processing whilst ensuring the products are price competitive.
