Tried and Tested: Parylene conformal coatings have been protecting and lubricating elastomers, electronics, plastics and metals for over four decades.
This ultra-thin coating provides a consistent pin-hole free barrier that is truly conformal, coating all shapes, edges, crevices and recesses to the same thickness, without suffering any of the edge effects of more conventional coatings.
Parylene is considered by many to be the very best thin film conformal coating for environmental protection particularly in high reliability applications.
It is the coating of choice to ruggedize critical electronics, devices and subassemblies in industries such as Aerospace, Defence and Medical.
Parylene provides protection from moisture, corrosive bodily fluids, chemicals, gases, temperature and fungus far surpassing the protective properties of most other conformal coatings.
Parylene is a highly lubricous dry film coating.
Parylene N has a low co-efficient of friction of 0.25 static and dynamic between 2.5 – 6µm.
Being particulate free and bio compatible, it is the favoured dry film lubricant for release-ability of manufacturing aids for medical device manufacture.
For elastomeric applications Parylene is used to remove tackiness from the substrate at coating thicknesses as low as 1500Å.
Parylene will be exhibiting at the MedTech Ireland Show in Galway on the 25th – 26th September 2019. Come along and meet the team!
