Differences between Parylene and Acrylic Conformal Coating

Posted by Sean Horn on Tue, Oct 27, 2020

Parylene and acrylic conformal coatings represent two extremes of the types of compounds you can use to coat printed circuit boards, sensors, or other devices. While acrylic is popular and inexpensive, parylene offers some of the best performance of any coating compound.

Aerospace Conformal Coatings

Conformal coatings composed of acrylic, silicone and parylene polymer materials are valuable for a wide range of aerospace applications, which can push technologies to their limits. Applied to printed circuit boards (PCBs) and related electrical assemblies, conformal coatings maintain device performance through difficult operational conditions. The presence of atmospheric variation, chemicals, hum

Used for aerospace. automotive, commercial, defense, industrial and medical applications, conformal coatings are applied in film layers generally 30-130 microns (micrometers/μm) thick, or 0.0012-0.0051 inches (“). Conformal films’ exceptional thinness is their greatest asset. Coatings safeguard printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electronics from performance malfunction generated by unw
