Crystal Mark Inc. in Glendale, Calif., has released its Turbo-Max CCR tabletop workstation for removing conformal coatings from components and printed circuit boards. Rather than using chemicals, the system employs micro-abrasive blasting to remove the coatings. Micro-abrasive blasting combines very fine particles and compressed air with a nozzle to focus on the area to be cleaned. Environmentally friendly Carbo Blast media safely and selectively removes most types of conformal coatings, including: acrylics, epoxy, silicones, polyurethanes, and parylene without causing mechanical or ESD damage. Sodium bicarbonate, walnut shell, and plastic media can also be used. An operator can switch between white and ultra-violet light for coatings that have UV identifiers. The workstation has a built-in filter/vacuum and is easy to set up and use. Facility requirement is a single electrical and single air line.
