Why Parylene is the Preferred Coating

Posted by Jake Hinojoza on Jan 8, 2019 9:00:00 AM

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.
