Dummy Components And PCB Test Boards For Cleanliness And Conformal Coating Process Testing


Practical Components provides products and services for the testing and evaluation of Conformal Coating materials on assembled PCB test boards. Conformal coating has provided many benefits to high and reliability industries as well as commercial off the shelf products being used in extreme environments. Changes in technology have caused conformal coating to become more prevalent in different industries like telecommunications, automotive, and other hand held devices.
