Crystal Mark introduces conformal coating removal system

GLENDALE, Calif., 8 May 2009. Crystal Mark Inc. 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.

GLENDALE, Calif., 8 May 2009. Crystal Mark Inc. 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 work station has a built in filter/vacuum and is easy to set up and use. Facility requirement is a single electrical and single air line.
