 Webinar Description: 

Engineers are tasked with increasing the reliability of components that continue to grow in complexity and decrease in dimension.  For many years, conformal coatings have offered valuable protection, but many simply do not offer the level that is required for today’s innovative technologies. Ultra-thin and lightweight, Parylene conformal coatings enhance the reliability of devices and components, including PCBs, sensors, LEDs, MEMS, semiconductor products and elastomeric seals, to name a few. Engineers may draw upon one or more of the polymer’s attributes and properties:  truly conformal and pinhole-free coverage (no voids or gaps), thermal stability up to 350 ͦC long-term (450 ͦ C short-term), superior moisture and chemical barrier properties, high dielectric strength per unit thickness and low coefficient of friction. 

This webinar will discuss Parylene coatings – how they are applied, their properties and benefits, and the industries and applications where Parylenes commonly provide reliable protection.  The presentation will also review advances in adhesion technologies, which have significantly increased bonding to difficult surfaces (e.g., highly polished metals and a variety of polymers), and the use of Parylene as a structural, nano-scale material.
