Parylene Coating and Aerospace

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on May 22, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Not so very long ago, it was hard to even imagine being able to travel cross-country in a day, let alone traveling across the world. And space travel was the subject of fictional stories. Today, all three of those goals have been realized, and, although you may not know it, it's possible, in part, to parylene.

Why You Should Use Parylene

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Mar 27, 2018 9:00:00 AM

As our electronics advance, they become smaller and smaller. The inner workings of electronics, however tiny, still need to be protected. Printed circuit boards, or PCBs, are the little pieces that make electronics run. To protect them from outside threats, they are covered in what is known as a conformal coating, or a non-conducive film covering. Parylene is a unique conformal coating that is applied as a vapor.

Conformal Coating for Military Applications

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Mar 21, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Conformal coatings are all around us in everyday objects and still most people don’t know what it is. Electronics need to be protected from environmental threats such as dust, water, temperature, and chemicals. To protect the printed circuit boards (PCBs) that make these electronics run, they are covered in non-conductive film, otherwise known as a conformal coating.
