Raleigh, NC – July 30, 2020 – HZO, a global leader in delivering world-class protective nanocoatings that safeguard electronics from the most demanding corrosive and liquid environments is hosting a technical webinar, “Proven Methods for Achieving Advanced Product Performance and Protection from Corrosive Environments” on Wednesday, August 12 at 2:00 pm EDT via Zoom.
Throughout various segments ranging from agriculture to automotive and food processing to water treatment facilities, it is essential to manage sources of corrosion to avoid catastrophic events. In the 2016 NACE International federal study, annual corrosion costs were estimated at $2.5 trillion in direct costs or 3.4% of USA’s GDP, not factoring indirect costs or including the electronics industry. It has been determined that implementing corrosion prevention best practices and strategies could yield global savings of between 15-35% of the damage costs.
HZO will demonstrate through test results and case trials how thin-film alternatives and nanocoatings can provide excellent protection from solid, liquid, and gaseous forms of contamination and corrosion prevention. In this 45-minute webinar, attendees will learn:
- How electric component failures have sparked demand for devices designed to decrease direct and indirect corrosion costs.
- How coating performance with Salt Fog, Flowers-of-Sulfur, and Mixed Flowing Gas (MFG) can be successful.
- Physical and dielectric barriers that protect underlying electronics from external contamination and electrical shorting.
- Why engineers are turning to thin-film alternatives and nanocoatings as an ideal way to prevent corrosion and reduce costs.
An audience 15-minute Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
Webinar presenter, Sean Clancy, Ph.D., joined HZO in 2014 and retains over 20 years of extensive experience in product development and materials analysis for advanced technology applications in academic, government, commercial, and medical research groups.
Sean has delivered over 550 individual projects and $1M+ revenue in root cause failure analysis of electronic components, wire bonds, epoxy-fiber glass composites for bare boards, through-hole technology (THT) and surface mount technology (SMT) assemblies, in addition to soldering, cleaning, conformal coating, and other electronics manufacturing processes for aerospace, automotive, commercial, defense, industrial, medical device, and scientific instrument customers.
Further, he has authored 19 publications, including four co-authored publications and two patent applications, speaks five languages, and presented a variety of technical subjects to audiences at local, regional, and international audiences at IPC, MRS, SMTA, SPIE, and universities. Sean earned a BS in Chemistry from the University of North Florida and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Southern California.
