The Basics of Parylene Removal

Posted by Advanced Coating on Apr 19, 2020 1:13:59 PM

Parylene is among the strongest, safest, and most reliable conformal coatings. It can coat surfaces of many sizes and shapes, all while performing under even the most extreme conditions. Naturally, this is excellent while the coating is doing its job--but how do you remove something designed to be so strong and permanent? Today we'll cover parylene removal, which techniques to avoid, and what you need to know.

Parylene Optical Properties, Explained

Posted by Advanced Coating on Mar 27, 2020 1:48:45 PM

Parylene coating has applications that range from space travel to the creation of prosthetic limbs. As a result, it must be strong and reliable. Still, it must also be subtle--that is, capable of doing its work without interrupting the function or purpose of the substrate material. The good news is that thanks to a long list of impressive optical properties, parylene coating never gets in the way, even when high levels of precision are required to maintain safety, health, or accuracy standards.

Parylene Coating and Aerospace

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on May 22, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Not so very long ago, it was hard to even imagine being able to travel cross-country in a day, let alone traveling across the world. And space travel was the subject of fictional stories. Today, all three of those goals have been realized, and, although you may not know it, it's possible, in part, to parylene.

Where to Buy Parylene

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Oct 3, 2017 9:00:00 PM

When you think of coatings, you probably imagine some sort of liquid that drys to form a protective layer. Parylene is a type of conformal coating that begins as a powder. It forms a plastic film that forms a layer of protection. It is a complex process that exists on the surface of everyday items around us.
