Engineering Parylene for Manufacturability

Optimize the production of your parylene-enhanced products

Translating a great design into a product that is manufacturable at scale can be daunting.That is why we develop tailored solutions that support the individual production methods of our customers. What does this mean? We engineer parylene manufacturing processes that are appropriate for the production quantities expected.

By getting involved early in the design cycle, we help provide our customers fresh insight into cost improvements, reduced investment, and increased scalability while reducing the time to manufacture for their products. Whether you are at an initial concept or already at commercialization, we can help improve the manufacturability of your parylene process.

Experts in Parylene Process Engineering

Go from design to manufacturing faster

VSi moves quickly to shorten the development cycle and keep costs in-line. Our engineers bring deep parylene expertise into a broad range of manufacturing environments to achieve targeted, efficient, and scalable solutions for your product. Our focus on manufacturability helps customers calculate the inherent tradeoffs before kicking off production. We execute unique test protocols, enabling you to assess certification risks early in the product development lifecycle, reducing costs and speed-to-market.

How it works

Prototype

Will it work?

Get clear feedback on whether parylene is right for your product or part. Prototype coating runs provide proof of concept parts for testing as well as initial budgetary pricing.

  • Find out if parylene is the right solution for your application.
  • Understand the costs and benefits of parylene coating your product.

Development

How do you make it?

If parylene is the right solution for your product, we move to build a robust and efficient process that scales to your demand with the right controls and documentation.

  • Develop the coating process, work instructions and quality assurance steps.
  • Collaborate with customers to help support the qualification process.
  • Reduce customer risk with transparency during the development process.

Production

You have options

After the process is qualified and locked, you have options on how to meet your production demand.

Coating as a Service

  • Let VSi handle the parylene coating at our facility.

In-house Equipment

  • Produce high-quality parylene coatings at your facility.
