Work experience
Season Group USA
Coating Specialist

A Coating Operator's job is to coat parts that are needing coating and can be a variety of components
but in this case: printed circuit boards.
Knowledge on the chemicals you work with is a must. You will work with very dangerous chemicals and
be exposed to vapors that can penetrate all PPE, walls, and respirator masks.
Read everything you can with the hazards regarding what chemicals and solvents you will be exposed
to when working on the job.
Your PPE will consist of a tyvek suit, hand gloves, and a respirator.
Typically, you will not use a tyvek suit as it is unnecessary. A simple vest or ESD coat is all that is
needed. Gloves are a must and they must be ESD safe. A respirator designed for not only vapor
protection but also protection from silicone based coatings is needed.
Next will be the mixing of chemicals with thinners. The ratios will not always be correct, even under
customer orders, some coatings can damage and short circuit parts.
Trial and error will be your friend for a good while before you come to find a good ratio to work with.
Now with your coating ready and your parts prepped and seated, you will then continue on with your
coating. Begin first with working the coating that is the most fragile and easiest to cause a defect if
conditions are not good. The easiest coating to spray would be the last to do.
After the coating is completed, either room temperature drying or oven based drying of the coated part
is needed. Room temperature drying works well for some coating and not all. The oven is more for a
curing of soldered parts and for ensuring a coating to even out correctly as it dries.
After curing, the printed circuit boards are then delivered to quality to make a final inspection pass
before going to shipping.

water jugs were carried along to the site.
Your PPE is a safety vest, gloves, steel toe boots for the rattlesnakes and dropping of materials on your
precious toes, a hard hat, preferably yellow or white. Bandanas are good as well for keeping the hot
sun off your neck and are good to use when soaked when working this Texas heat.
Build, measure, work well with others or not, your duties and goals are all the same.
