DOWSIL Innovative Silicone Conformal Coating – Reliability

Wonder why Creative Engineering chooses our Conformal coating from Dowsil? The answer lies in the versatility of silicone chemistry, which helps expand design freedom, increase processing options, broaden performance parameters and introduces unique options for sustainability. Compared to organic-based coatings, silicone solutions offer several valuable benefits:

Thermal Stability 

Dowsil Silicones perform consistently greatly at temperatures as low as -45°C and as high as 150°C – a far broader range than organic coatings. Many silicones can even withstand brief exposure to temperatures up to 250°C.

Stress relief

Dowsil Silicone conformal coatings offer an extraordinarily broad range of hardness, as well as extremely low-modulus options. They deliver better stress relief on delicate board components during thermal cycling.

Simple solventless options

Dowsil silicones are nearly all solventless, making them the material of choice where emerging regulations impose complex and costly special requirements for handling and processing.

Choose your viscosity

Low viscosity for high-speed production


Dowsil low-viscosity silicone coatings support high-speed production methods, including manual or automated spraying, flow or jetting techniques. These faster-flowing materials also are suitable options when you want your coating to flow through vias or under chips.

Higher viscosity for greater control

Offering incrementally higher viscosities, this category of Dowsil silicone coatings provides increasing control over the speed and distance of flow to prevent their spread into “no-go” areas. Higher-viscosity silicones also enable thicker coating layers in one pass, and some grades even offer a stable coat on tall vertical surfaces.
