If you're seeking to learn more about parylene, odds are you've heard a little bit about it's more common uses. (Unless you find parylene's uses and composition fascinating, which, we'll admit, we do). Some of the most common place uses you've likely run into would be in:

  • the automotive industry
  • the medical field
  • defense & aerospace technology
  • consumer electronics

Parylene is a diverse, efficient type of coating that has been developed to fit into and benefit our modern world in many different ways.  

All About Conformal Coating for Electronics

When we use electronics throughout the day, we rarely consider how they operate. Thinking about the inner workings of electronics can be mind-boggling as they are so small yet produce so much. From everything like a handheld electronic to security systems, there are electronic circuits making things run. These circuits must be protected. Read on to learn about why and how.

Waterproof PCBs with Parylene Coating

A printed circuit board (PCB) supports and connects electronic components within everyday devices. There are water resistant phones and waterproof watches, but how are the printed circuit boards protected? Waterproofing the board by coating it adequately is extremely important. Any missed point is a potential shorting point. Here’s how you can waterproof a printed circuit board with parylene.

Why Parylene is the Preferred Coating

Consumers demand smaller, faster, and more durable products in every industry. Companies are consistently being challenged with the idea of their products being faster, with additional features, and being more durable, while getting smaller.

Look at the advancements of our smartphones over the past five years. Manufacturers have been using glue, rubber seals, and gaskets to seal a smartphone. But as consumers demand thinner, faster, and now waterproof smartphones, there is less and less room for glue or other coatings that are thick. Manufacturers are looking at parylene coating to protect the vital components of their devices.

Parylene Coating and Aerospace

Parylene conformal coating offers the best in conformity and versatility in aerospace PCBs and electronics. Because of its ability to uniformly conform and encapsulate any device, you can be assured that the device is fully protected. In addition, parylene offers a range of benefits that directly impact aerospace including:

Why You Should Use Parylene

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.
