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.

A printed circuit board (PCB) supports and connects electronic components within everyday devices. There are water resistant phones and waterproof watches, but how are the printed circuit boards protected? Waterproofing the board by coating it adequately is extremely important. Any missed point is a potential shorting point. Here’s how you can waterproof a printed circuit board with parylene.

As our electronics advance, they become smaller and smaller. The inner workings of electronics, however tiny, still need to be protected. Printed circuit boards, or PCBs, are the little pieces that make electronics run. To protect them from outside threats, they are covered in what is known as a conformal coating, or a non-conducive film covering. Parylene is a unique conformal coating that is applied as a vapor. Read on to learn more.
