Solve Demanding Environment Challenges with Parylene Conformal Coatings

Available On-Demand until November 8, 2017

Conformal coatings are often used in the electronics, automotive, military, aerospace and medical device industries to protect products from their surrounding environments. As technologies continue to evolve, often becoming smaller and more complex, and are required to survive harsh operating conditions, many conformal coatings struggle to provide reliable, lasting protection. 

For over 45 years, Parylene conformal coatings have enhanced the reliability of numerous devices and parts, including circuit boards, sensors, MEMS/semiconductor products, LEDs, implantable medical devices, and elastomeric and metal components, in a wide array of applications and environments. 

This Webinar will offer an opportunity to learn more about Parylene conformal coatings – the coating process, applications Parylenes protect today, and the properties and benefits they can offer your products, including:

            •Excellent moisture and chemical barrier 
            •High dielectric strength 
            •Thermal stability up to 350°C long-term (450°C short-term) 
            •Lubricity/low coefficient of friction 
            •Truly conformal coverage, with no air-gaps or voids 

The Webinar will also discuss recent advances in adhesion technologies, which have significantly increased bonding strength to highly-polished metal surfaces and polymeric substrates, and the role Parylene plays in advanced micro and nano-level technologies. 

As applications, materials and technologies continue to change and progress, new developments in Parylene conformal coatings will continue to enhance performance and add measurable value to products around the world.
