    CRC PCB water proofing

    Have been looking for a while for something to insulate back sides of motherboards etc for a while besides vaseline and this stuff fits the bill in every category.

    CRC Urethane Seal Coat
    Product Features
    • High dielectric strength 1300 volts/mil, high surface and volume resistivity make it ideal for electrical/electronics applications
    • Effective temperature range of -90 to 250 degrees F
    • Dries quickly to a hard, durable, flexible and non-conductive film
    • Abrasion resistant insulator for electrical and electronic equipment and components
    • Allows easy visualization of circuit paths on PC boards



    Thought I would try it on the backside of my 32m card first.



    1 thick coat and dries fully within 12 hours, doesnt crack or web when I bend the pcb a little bit and not easily flaked off.
    You can kind of see the thickness near the PCI-E fingers which were taped off.



    Used primarily to seal and prevent shorts with water but seems to bead it up nicely as well.




    Will apply to a mobo next and update how it stands up to ln2

    Plastik 70 will eventually peel off, bit by bit. But it will hold a few subzero sessions.

    Try a few LN2 sessions and check if it's intact

    Not the same as Plastik 70 (which seems not to be available in the United States)...
    Polyurethane vs acrylic.

    MG Chem makes similar conformal coatings, just recently introduced the "premium" polyurethane and acrylic ones, not for sale yet

    Yep, I've used it on the back of my Commando, no problem even when going full pot. I know hipro5 used it on his boards/VGAs as well.

    @BeepBeep2: You're right, it's based on different material.

    So this on back with neoprene, towels and the Dragon Skin on top with neoprene, towels should be the cleanest and safest setup for benching, correct?
