Conformal Coatings Increase Reliability of Critical Aerospace/Defense Systems and Components

Available On-Demand until December 19, 2017

Available on Monday, December 19, 2016

In the aerospace and defense industries, conformal coatings are used to protect components from the increasingly harsh environments in which they must operate. As technologies continue to advance, often becoming smaller and more complex and/or utilizing advanced materials in their design, many surface treatment options struggle to provide reliable protection. This Tech Talk examines Parylene conformal coatings and how they ensure the reliability of critical components when failure is not an option.

Ultra-thin Parylene conformal coatings can enhance the reliability of components, including circuit boards, sensors, MEMS, LEDs, and elastomers, that are used in a wide variety of systems such as flight data and recording, communications, aircraft monitoring, fuel systems, landing gear and braking systems, lighting, UAVs, and satellites. 

This Tech Talk discusses:

• Overview of Parylene coatings, including their unique deposition process 

• Parylene’s properties: excellent chemical and moisture barrier, high dielectric strengths, thermal stability up to 350°C (short-term), and superior UV stability 
• Standards to which Parylene coatings qualify 
• Review of industry applications
