Parylene and Silicone Conformal Coatings:  A Comparison

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jun 24, 2016 @ 07:30 AM

One liquid coating type that rivals the use of parylene is silicone conformal coating (Type SR), which cures rapidly, is reliably dielectric and displays exceptional stability across a wide temperature range.  These properties make it parylene’s chief performance competitor, for many purposes.  Further comparison delineates their benefits and disadvantages relative to each other.

What is type XY conformal coating?

Posted by Sean Horn on Wed, Jan 09, 2013 @ 12:04 PM

Type xy conformal coating refers to parylene conformal coating.  Parylene gets the type xy from its’ full name, para-xylylene.   It was shortened to parylene and eventually type xy so that it could be grouped with the other conformal coatings (type ar, ur, etc.).
