Parylene Coating Blog by Diamond-MT
Choosing parylene gets you half way to protecting your company's products with the best possible conformal coating. To close the circle, unless you have invested in the proper equipment and training, you also need to choose the right service to apply the coating. The Parylene coating industry, while it is a fairly niche business, is still a competitive market, but the very few top-quality providers are relatively easy to identify. Here are some of the attributes that you should actively seek:Read More
Diamond-MT is proud to announce that it will be exhibiting at IPC APEX 2013 in San Diego February 19-21, 2013. Diamond-MT will be featuring its parylene coating services and conformal coating services as well as conformal coating equipment and consultation and training services.
One thing to consider is the coating house’s experience level. Developing solid procedures and processes for conformal coating take time and experience. Many new vendors claim to be able to apply conformal coating as well as the experienced guys, but fall short whenever they run into issues they do not have the experience to troubleshoot. It will be tough to get referrals from your coating house, as a lot of times they are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. A good way to evaluate their experience level would be to ask how many years they have been in business and their typical weekly, monthly, and yearly volumes processed. A visit to their facility, if warranted by the volume of the project, should give a good indication of the seriousness of their abilities.
Solvents can be used safely. However, the exposure of the operator to the solvent fumes must be REGULARLY measured and RECORDED. This ensures a safe operating environment and if an OSHA problem does arise in the future, evidence exists to rule out the conformal coating process as the culprit.

Raw Materials – Parylene Dimer and Adhesion Promotion
Parylene dimer is the raw form of parylene. It is the solid inserted into the machine that is broken down through the deposition process. Cost for parylene dimer can be anywhere from $200 to $5,000 per pound depending on the different type of dimer. A typical coating run is around a pound of dimer.
