A solid electrolytic capacitor having an anode that contains a valve-action metal (e.g., tantalum, niobium, and the like) and a dielectric film overlying the anode is provided. The capacitor also include a protective coating overlying the dielectric film, wherein the protective coating contains a relatively insulative, resinous material. For example, in one embodiment, the resinous material can be a drying oil, such as olive oil, linseed oil, tung oil, castor oil, soybean oil, shellac, and derivatives thereof. The capacitor also includes a conductive polymer coating overlying the protective coating. As a result of the present invention, it has been discovered that a capacitor can be formed that can have a relatively low leakage current, dissipation factor, and equivalents series resistance.
