Internally, Deep Coat specializes solely in coatings for EMI shielding. However, our peers in the decorative coating fields are able and willing to work with us and our customers to provide decorative over-coatings after shielding is completed.
Deep Coat Decorative Over-Coating
Deep Coat has partnered with other coaters and vacuum metallizers to offer decorative EMI shielding and industrial coatings to our customers. We can provide EMI-shielded products with decorative finishes as a result of our combined abilities. If you want industrial coatings that look excellent, you can count on Deep Coat and our partners to deliver high-quality results.
Based on your product’s needs, we can develop the tooling and masking to: create an EMI shield on the inside of the housing while decorative coating the outside of the housing, EMI shield the outside of the housing and decorative coat over the shielded layer(s) of metal, or EMI shield the entire housing and selectively add decorative over-coating as requested.
In addition to decorative/EMI coatings, we can work with our network to provide industrial metal coatings that have shown promise in protecting electronic components from EMI shields that otherwise would have violated minimum electrical clearance. For example, some PCB shielding applications require the shield to be so close to charged components that the system would short to ground; Deep Coat provides selective PVD coatings to thermoformed shields that can be mounted directly to the board with the underside of the can being an insulating plastic and the outside of the can providing the EMI shielding.
