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 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.

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.
