Are you currently searching for a conformal coating and what is your project timeframe?*
No Yes, in 0-3 Months Yes, in 3-6 Months Yes, in 6-12 Months Yes, not sure of timeframe
Are you using Parylene coatings as part of your design and/or problem-solving tools today?*
No, I've never heard of Parylene until this webinar. I've heard of Parylene, but am not familiar with it. I have a reasonable knowledge of Parylene, but haven't used it before. I have used Parylene in the past, but am not using it right now. Yes, I routinely design with Parylene or look to it to solve critical problems.

Conformal coatings have been used in the electronics, automotive, defense, aerospace and medical device industries for many years in a number of surface modification roles, including:
• Isolate/protect device surfaces from various environments
• Provide selective or overall electrical insulation
• Improve lubricity/reduce tackiness
• Stabilize/consolidate surfaces by micro-particle immobilization
• Stabilize very delicate micro structures
• Function as an interface that is non-inhibitory to tissue growth
As devices and components within these industries become smaller and increasingly complex, they present unique challenges for many conformal coatings. Poly(para-xylylene), known as Parylene, is an ultra-thin (typically 500 angstroms to 75 microns), inert, transparent coating that meets these unique challenges. Parylene provides highly useful dielectric and barrier properties per unit thickness, as well as extreme chemical inertness and freedom from pinholes. The coating is also biocompatible. Parylene protects components and devices, including circuit card assemblies, MEMS, sensors, LEDs, cores, lab-on-a-chip devices, pacemakers, stents, and cochlear implants, to name only a few.
This webinar will focus on the Parylene’s unique properties, how the coating is applied, examples of applications that benefit from Parylene’s properties, and advances that have been made in adhesion technologies. As materials and applications continue to advance, Parylene coatings are increasingly being used to enhance the reliability of today’s, and tomorrow’s, innovative technologies.
