As devices and components become progressively smaller and increasingly complex, they present unique challenges for many OEM design teams. The issues aren’t just driven by project specifications and industry regulations, but by the different coating options that could be applied to any project….with varying degrees of success.
Conformal coatings are used in the medical device, electronics, automotive, military and aerospace industries for a variety of surface modification functions, including:
- Isolate/protect devices from the environments encountered
- Provide thermal and electrical insulation - selectively or overall
- Enhance lubricity… or conversely, reduce tackiness
- Stabilize/consolidate surfaces by micro-particle immobilization
- Control metallic whisker growth
- Reduce/eliminate surface micro-porosity to control the entrapment of contaminants
- Stabilize delicate micro/nano structures
- Function as an interface that is biocompatible
Every OEM project has different requirements, so this webinar will focus on how the polymer Parylene, Poly(para-xylylene), compares to other industry conformal coatings, including silicones, epoxies, acrylics and urethanes. It will also discuss:
- Overview of ultra-thin (micron-level thickness), pinhole-free Parylene coatings
- Parylene’s unique properties that enhance reliability of components
- How Parylene is applied to result in ultra-thin, very conformal coatings
- Examples of applications that benefit from Parylene’s properties
- New advances that have been made in adhesion technologies
- Advanced applications for Parylene
As new materials and applications arise, an understanding of component manufacturability, of coating design, and the technical performance data of various coating options are key to choosing the best coating for a given application. The webinar will wrap up with a live Q&A session with technical staff from Specialty Coating Systems.
