Product Features & Benefits

NanoProof® achieves compatibility with all of the common material types used in PCB fabrication by utilizing fluorinated acrylic polymers. Aculon® NanoProof® series are sprayable or dip based treatments that do not require a cure and have no impact on conductivity testing. While some of the NanoProof® products series are so thin that they are invisible to naked eye, all of the NanoProof® series contain a UV tracer to ensure detection at customer sites.
