The environment essentially defines the need for coating. "Inside" may mean inside a men's locker room with attendant high humidity or inside a climate-controlled clean environment. Conformal coatings offer protection against moisture, fungus, chemical exposure, dust, abrasion or mechanical penetration of circuitry, privacy, vibration and arcing. For more info, there is an FAQ on my website (thermospray.com) you might want to check out.
