Jaro Corp. specializes in the application of functional coatings for the aerospace, defense, medical and commercial electronics industries. The use of conformal, conductive and dielectric coatings provides an economical solution for all of your environmental protection, EMI / RFI shielding and dielectric isolation requirements. By focusing solely on our core technology since 1984, we have gained the experience necessary to solve even the most challenging coating issues.
Our goal is to meet our customers’ demands for timely delivery and high quality functional coatings by becoming a seamless extension to their manufacturing operation. We will do this by providing unparalleled technical support and service at a price point commensurate with their overall product goals.
Jaro Corp was established by President/CEO Jim Odoardi in June 1984. Originally located in Peabody Massachusetts, Jaro Corp occupied approximately 1,000 square feet and only offered one dielectric coating. Shortly thereafter, Jaro Corp expanded its services to include the application of conductive coatings, and in the late 1980’s began applying conformal coatings. Over the course of the following two decades, to meet the evolving industry demand, Jaro Corp’s primary focus shifted to conformal coatings. Currently 85% of our business is derived from the application of conformal coatings.
Unlike many companies who offer an array of services, without specializing in any, Jaro Corp has chosen to focus solely on its core technology: the application of functional coatings. In August 2007, Jaro Corp took another step towards becoming the industry leader and opened its 34,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Ipswich Massachusetts. This facility was designed specifically for coatings applications and will help us meet the increasing demand and requirements of our customers, while providing us with the space needed to support our continued growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long has Jaro Corp. been applying coatings?
Jaro Corp. has been applying functional coatings since 1984. We began with one dielectric coating and shortly thereafter expanded our services to include conductive coatings. By the late 1980’s we began applying conformal coatings.
What type of coatings does Jaro Corp. apply?
Jaro Corp. applies polyurethane, acrylic, silicone and epoxy conformal coatings. We also offer a wide array of conductive and dielectric coatings.
Does Jaro Corp. offer Parylene coatings?
Jaro Corp. does not offer Parylene coatings in-house, at this time. However, we do work closely with a local Parylene coating supplier, and would be happy to make a referral.
Is there a minimum / maximum quantity that Jaro Corp. can process?
No. We can run everything from single units to full production lots of several thousand pieces at a time.
Will Jaro Corp supply a sample piece for evaluation?
Yes, Jaro Corp. is always willing to provide a no-cost sample for evaluation.
What is your lead time?
While the specific lead time depends on several factors, including current backlog, job complexity and lot size, our standard turnaround time is 5-10 business days. We do also offer a rush service, which would reduce the turnaround time to 2-4 business days.
I’ve never had PCBs coated before. What type of coating should I use?
While Jaro Corp. can explain the different characteristics of various coating types, and help guide you in your decision making process, we can’t ultimately make that decision for you. The specific coating choice must come from your engineering department.
What will it cost to have my PCBs conformal coated, and what information do you need in order to supply a quote?
There are a number of factors to consider when quoting the application of conformal coatings. In order to provide an accurate cost, we would require a drawing with notes specifying the keep out areas and the coating you intend to use, your estimated annual usage and your expected release quantities. Also, while there is a difference in cost from one coating to another, the major cost driver is the amount of labor involved in masking / unmasking your product. This is where the majority of time is spent during the process.
The most efficient way to request a quote would be to fill out this RFQ form in its entirety and submit.
How do I need to specify my conformal coating requirements on my drawings?
Your drawings should include notes that specify masking locations (keep out areas), the specific coating required and any specs / standards that need to be met.
What industry standards do you coatings meet?
Jaro Corp. applies coating in accordance with IPC-A-610, J-STD-001, IPC-CC-830 and Mil-I-46058.
What quality standards do you have in place?
Jaro Corp. is AS9100:2009 and ISO 9001:2008 certified.
What methods do you use to apply conformal coatings?
Jaro Corp. utilizes all of the application methods available: hand spraying, computer controlled selective coating and dipping. Hand spraying continues to be our most common application method, but we have been steadily increasing our computer controlled selective coating abilities over the last several years.
What services does Jaro Corp. offer, besides the application of functional coatings?
Jaro Corp. offers many secondary operations often performed in conjunction with the application of functional coatings. These include the application of underfill / overfill materials, epoxys / RTVs, staking compounds and potting.
My BGAs need underfill. What type of underfill should I use?
We are unable to determine which underfill material your product will require. We can, however, help you develop the correct underfilling process once a specific material is selected.
