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

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Sep 10, 2019 9:00:00 AM


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.

Conformal Coating for Military Applications

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 and Today's Military

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Jan 9, 2018 9:00:00 AM


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.
