Things to consider when Choosing a Parylene Coating Service Provider

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jul 10, 2015 @ 07:58 AM

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:

Conformal Coating Service: What to look for?

Posted by Sean Horn on Thu, Jun 28, 2012 @ 08:48 AM

After you have decided to outsource conformal coating, it is time to evaluate and decide on a vendor.  What criteria should you use to evaluate your potential vendors and how should you make a final decision?

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.

How Parylene Cost is Determined

Posted by Sean Horn on Mon, Apr 16, 2012 @ 03:34 PM

Parylene is often priced out to be one of the more expensive conformal coating options.  After a quick look at some of the cost factors, it will be easy to see why.  Three of the main factors that influence parylene cost are raw materials, labor, and lot volume. 

 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.
