Protection Against Moisture Attack For PCBs

By on February 2, 2013

I've got an email recently and here is the email content:

"I have a SMPS in service in a product we sell. We have 300 of these in service, and have had many fail recently due to weather. We think maybe because of high air moisture due to a cyclone that just hit Australia. there is some corrosion showing in the feedback section of the PS directly below the fan. In your experience, is there anything we can do to prevent moisture attack on the PCB level? We are looking at replacing about 15 of these from this one event. Any comments would be appreciated. 


Mr B.K


So far I have not come across such problem before on the PCBs due to moisture attack but I did suggest that he try out the product below. You may click on the link to the website.

If you have any suggestion and solution for moisture attack on PCBs please do leave a comment below thanks.

    Congratulations and all the best.
    PS. Although I would have liked to write a longer message, my finger dexterity is rather limited after the recent stroke I suffered.

    Sir Jestine
    Thanks you for Moisture Solvent in order to remove moist from PCB s.
    The above liquid solution is good. However, Phillips degreaser, Perfect degreaser and service with blower / thermal hot air may be solved the issue. Also, cleaning with some dry solvent like petrol / Thinner might be useful so as to complete remove the moist problem.
    I do use always home made solvent in normal repair at workshop like-wise light category thinner.

    Thanks you
    yours Student
