Why Choose Parylene Coatings

RELIABLE PROTECTION FOR FULL SERVICE-LIFE OF CRITICAL ELECTRONICS

Uniform and Pinhole-Free

Parylene’s vapor deposition coating process conforms precisely to the contours of electronics, penetrating spaces in the sub-micron range to provide uniform coverage without any gaps or weak points.

Ultra-Thin and Lightweight

Typically ranging from nanometers to micrometers in thickness, parylene coatings allow for effective and reliable protection without 90% the bulk and weight of other coatings.

Dielectric Isolation

Minimize the risk of unexpected electrical failures due to crosstalk, signal loss or arcing with precision dielectric control provided by parylene’s unique mix of electrical properties.

Thermal Conductivity

Parylene’s thin and lightweight design lets electronics shed heat efficiently, preventing overheating and ensuring optimal performance, particularly critical for high-power devices.

Aerospace & Defense Coating Applications

BARRIER LAYER

Advanced Barrier Properties for High-Performance Avionics

Parylene’s effectiveness as a barrier coating stems from a unique synergy between its vapor deposition process and its inherent material chemistry. The vapor deposition ensures pinhole-free, conformal coatings, even on intricate geometries.  Combined with Parylene’s dense molecular structure and chemical inertness, this uniform layer creates a robust barrier, shielding electronics from moisture, chemicals and environmental threats.

Example Applications:

  • Flight Control Systems
  • GPS
  • Head-Up Displays
  • Radios
  • Flight Data Recorders
  • Transponders

DIELECTRIC LAYER

Reliable Dielectric Protection for Densely Populated Circuitries

Parylene coatings possess inherent dielectric properties that are highly useful for insulating electronic components and circuits, especially in applications where electrical isolation is critical, such as in miniaturized electronics. Applying parylene coatings onto printed circuit boards and components ensures that current travels only along designated pathways within the circuit.

Example Applications:

  • Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)
  • Sensors
  • Capacitors
  • Batteries
  • Telecommunication devices
  • Motor Drives and Inverters

DRY LUBRICITY

Dependable Friction Reduction for Reduced Component Wear

Parylene coatings can reduce the coefficient of friction between moving components. In avionics with sliding or rotating parts, such as switches, connectors, or mechanical assemblies, the dry lubricity of parylene can help minimize frictional forces where precise control or synchronization of moving parts is required.

Example Applications:

  • Robotics
  • Piezoelectronics
  • Locking Mechanisms
  • Controller Buttons and Joysticks
  • Slider Switches and Potentiometers
