Electronic devices are a major part of life for people everywhere — enabling communication, education, entertainment and industry. From consumer devices like smartphones and wearables to specialised industrial technology such as automation controls and artificial intelligence, we find electronics everywhere — including many challenging environments that require protection of both the devices’ internal components and external screens and surfaces. Designers and developers are always looking for protection that is thin, reliable and a fit for their manufacturing processes.
For decades, 3M has been manufacturing electronic grade coatings featuring the latest breakthroughs to satisfy the needs and expectations of manufacturers and end users. Today, our 3M™ Novec™ Electronic Grade Coatings feature high performance and ultra-thin, easy-to-use chemistry that offers a wide margin of safety for workers and is sustainable for the environment. Whatever the need — a better alternative to traditional conformal coatings to protect against corrosion, or a screen coating that makes a device look and feel as great as it performs — 3M has a Novec oleophobic and hydrophobic coating to help.
The demands placed on modern devices and other critical electronics are ever-increasing. From more processing packed in a smaller space, to high user expectations for reliability, longevity, style and finish, electronics designers and manufacturers need electronic grade coatings with innovative features.
3M Novec Electronic Grade Coatings are designed for your specific needs and applications.
Inside every electronic device is a complex and compact network of printed circuit board circuitry and miniaturised components. These are susceptible to corrosion that could impact reliability and shorten device life. Help protect electronic components efficiently and cost-effectively with an advanced anti-corrosion coating.
Most users experience electronic devices through their touchscreens. Give glass and glass-like surfaces an easy-to-clean oleophobic coating to help them look good, feel good and function properly.
Core to the 3M Novec promise is the ability of our products to improve lives. We develop our electronic grade coatings to deliver needed performance without compromising worker safety — and with environmental sustainability in mind.
