LEDs and Semiconductors

Parylene offers nano-scale protection for today’s semiconductor technologies.

Semiconductors make the modern world possible. A world without semiconductors would lack many of the technological wonders – microchips, transistors, LEDs – that allow any of the electronics we use to function or to have been produced. Semiconductors have drastically reduced the cost of high-tech, allowing electronics manufacturers to retain complexity while bringing costs and size down. Semiconductors are largely responsible for the aesthetically sleek and thin designs that electronics manufacturers of today’s computers, tablets and cell phones produce to help sell their products to increasingly shrewd consumers. Parylene protects by completely encapsulating semiconductors, and the electronic assemblies they are a part of, with a nearly impermeable polymer film coating. This coating is completely inert, adheres as a gas (coating at thicknesses as low as 0.1 microns), and conforms precisely to all surface topographies. Parylene protects from water, moisture, gas, dust, corrosive chemicals, electrical charges, space and even the human body. Learn more about what parylene is and how it works here.
