Parylene Conformal Coating is considered to be one of the best forms of protection for the surface of electronic devices due to its conforming characteristics and specific properties.

Key Benefits of Parylene Conformal Coating


The film is liquid-free, therefore making it safe on even the most sensitive electronics. It is also extremely thin, so it can still act as a liquid in that it can fit in small crevices without possibly damaging effects.


Parylene Conformal Coating has been approved for use on a variety of things, including:

  1. Conformal Coating For Circuit Boards & Electronic Assemblies (Meets MIL-I-46058C, Type XY)
  2. Particle Immobilization (e.g. Disk Drive Metal Components)
  3. Lubricity (e.g. Catheter Guide Wires)
  4. Dielectric (e.g. Cores/Bobbins)
  5. Hydrophobic (e.g. Biomedical Tubing)
  6. Barrier (e.g. Filters, Membranes, Valves)

Along with being able to coat particular products, it can also be used on paper, glass, metal, plastic, ceramic and other surfaces.

Resistant Properties

The film's resistant properties make it an effective barrier against thermal damage, as well as resistant to chemical attacks.

Chemically Inert

Due to its chemically inert property, parylene has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to be utilized on implantable devices. This assists in maintaining the devices within the body for longer periods of time.

As you can see, Parylene Conformal Coating provides several exceptional benefits for a variety of different products and uses. With its non-liquid properties, versatility and strength, it is the perfect choice for your coating needs.
