Orange Peel

 

Typical failure mechanism in conformal coating processing: Orange Peel

This video is about one of the typical failure mechanisms in conformal coating processing called Orange peel.

This defect is an uneven textured surface formed on the conformal coating, often appearing dull, which looks like the skin of an orange or a golf ball with small craters and dimples.

The video shows what causes orange peel in the conformal coating process and how to prevent it to happen.
