ONE OF THE most common problems the industry faces is poor adhesion of conformal coating, causing bubbles and dewetting.
In my experience, WB coatings tend to be more sensitive to oils and other contamination that cause dewetting, craters, and other defects.
The wavy form of gray color, is an indication of the dewetting front over the substrate.
These interactions prevent the detachment and dewetting of rubber during the TSSR measurement and cause high crosslink density estimates, as here observed for the optimal range of APTES concentrations.
Their properties include levelling, wetting and dewetting, releasing and/or debonding, foaming or defoaming, emulsifying or demulsifying and dispersing or coagulating.
In general, it prevents the dewetting of the capsules from the matrix and allows an efficient energy transfer during the crazing formation.

Conducting reflow simulations on the connector pins showed evidence of outgassing from the plating and complete dewetting on the surface of the pins.
For example, simulations of explicit water between plate like solutes revealed that hydrophobic attraction and dewetting phenomena are strongly sensitive to the nature of solute-solvent dispersion interactions [11].
The amount of pigment in the formulation has a significant influence on the compatibility of the defoamer because the solid particles can slow or prevent the dewetting process from occurring around the defoamer.
