Parylene 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:

  • Ultra-thin coating
  • Good adherence to nearly any surface
  • Minimized ionic conduction
  • Low dielectric constant
  • High resistance to fungi
  • Hydrophobic properties

Parylene is suitable for aerospace because it is a military conformal coating and can be attached in small areas. It is also good for addressing UV degradation by offering UV filtration on the coated item. LED assemblies have the opportunity to be protected from malfunction. It is heat resistant yet lightweight and pinhole free.

Because of the environmental extremes common in aerospace electronics, a coating that provides protection against extremes while also being mechanically adhered is necessary, and that's what parylene does. It is strong yet has low permeability and an excellent resistant to temperature extremes.

Overall, parylene offers great benefits for aerospace applications of all kinds and can provide improved performance and an extended lifespan on critical components. Learn how parylene works for aerospace by contacting Advanced Coating today!
