Why Parylene is a Superior Conformal Coating

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on May 9, 2017 9:00:00 AM


There are a lot of different conformal coatings out there, and each has its place in our vast and complex world. However, one coat stands head and shoulders above the rest, boasting a broad range of benefits and characteristics that make it valuable in almost every industry. That conformal coating is known as parylene, and there are a few big things that make it superior.

Parylene Coating vs Nano Coating

All electronic devices have a "heart" of sorts--the Printed Circuit Assembly (PCA). The device relies on its PCA for a little bit of everything, which means that the PCA needs to be able to do a little bit of everything. That's where conformal coatings like parylene come in. Thanks to the high-level protection of coatings, PCAs can function safely and appropriately.

Almost every professional field known to man relies on parylene in some way. Thanks to a wide range of benefits and reliable protection that is both long-lasting and durable, parylene coating is used in almost every area in our lives. One of the most interesting things about this conformal coating is exploring all of its vastly different applications--and today, our parylene application spotlight falls on MEMS.

How to Know When Conformal Coating Needs Removal

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Mar 21, 2017 9:00:00 AM


Conformal coatings were designed to be safe and effective for years to come. Unfortunately, though, that isn't always the case. There are certain conditions which can severely impact the quality of the coating, limiting its effectiveness and even altering the product's overall performance. This can lead to serious issues. How do you know when your conformal coating needs to be removed?

Corrosion Resistance in Conformal Coating

Conformal coatings are nothing if not trustworthy. They are placed in some of the harshest environments known to man, forced to face dangerous conditions for long periods of time without sacrificing safety, longevity, or functionality. This is possible because conformal coatings boast an impressive array of strengths that allow survival--but too often we look at the big picture and forget to appreciate the smaller benefits that work together to create this cohesive reliability. Today, we'll take a look at one of the most important strengths: corrosion resistance.

Describing parylene requires rattling off a long list of extremely useful benefits. As good as those benefits look on paper, however, they are even more important in action--and sometimes it's important to go back to basics and appreciate parylene in the real world. Our conformal coating experts want you to have all the answers to the question, "why use parylene?"
