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.

Conformal coatings are used to protect printed circuit boards within electronics. Without this protection, electronics would fail after contact with a chemical, water, or other environmental hazards. Many industries use conformal coatings, but the military is an example of an industry that needs their devices protected from extreme situations.

Parylene is used medical, aerospace, military and almost every other industry we can think of. It's applications are as varied as its benefits and has an impressive list of advantages over other conformal coatings. Taking an even closer look shows that the different types of parylene have their own unique benefits. Each of the three types is best for a certain kind of job.
