It can be challenging for RF systems to meet the size, weight, power and cost requirements (also known as “SWaP-C") set by consumer market or defense agency demand using traditional hermetic or coating solutions. SignalSeal offers an ultra-thin, low-k environmental protection solution to rival the conventional approaches.
There are two main standards commonly used to initially determine if a conformal coating may be suited to harsh military and industrial applications, IPC-CC-830C and MIL-I-46058C. The main goal of these standards is to impart confidence in the users that the coatings will have a consistent quality, physical characteristics, and protection capability needed for modern electronics.
Increasingly complex tire designs ultimately led to more demand for polymers like RapidRelease from GVD. Tire treads have a lot more siping, they have serrated siping, and they have 3D siping. In some cases, these designs make it difficult to strip or remove the tire from the mold.
