Default Anyone ever use Cortec ElectriCorr for their amps?

I'm sure everyone has thought about finding something to protect their car amps from being ruined while using them on the boat.

I have two new car amps just sitting in the garage that I'm going to install in my center console and I was looking for something to spray the board with to protect it from the elements.. I was searching for something that I saw being used on marine amps/headunits (Conformal-coated main PCB board)..

The product I found is called "
Cortec ElectriCorr VpCI-286 Acyrlic-based Conformal Coating for Printed Circuit Boards"
The website is http://www.theruststore.com/Cortec-P...FQaznQod-CQAxQ

Here is one other product I found also PC101 spray-- http://www.startinternational.com/pr...=589&type=prod

But I just wanted to see if we have any electrical engineers on the forum to get some input. I figured for $18.00 it would give the amps a better chance of surviving the salt air here in Florida. It sounds promising!

Why not just do quick disconnects like bullet connectors and pull them off the boat if ur worried. I don't think spraying an electrical board is a good idea but that's just me. I assume little chips with millamps aren't very resilient if sprayed but I've been wrong before.

I'm going to continue my research, but while I was leaving work yesterday I asked one of the Bio-Medical repair techs yesterday about doing this... He said very quickly, yep, it would work and he wouldn't have any issues spraying his stuff. But I will do some posts on one my DIYMobile audio forums for more input.
