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.
