Conformal Coating for Automotive Applications

Posted by Sean Horn on Wed, Sep 18, 2013

More and more, cars aren’t just made of steel, aluminum, plastic and silicon. Parylene is becoming one of the most useful tools in an automaker’s arsenal. From protecting internal sensors and circuit boards to keeping LED indicator lights bright and color-accurate, Parylene conformal coatings are an important part of protecting today’s sensitive automotive electronics.

Parylene and MEMS Technology

Posted by Sean Horn on Mon, Jun 18, 2012

In the past decade, the use of Parylene as a structural material in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices has attracted significant attention.  Parylene C, known for its biocompatibility, is widely used in implantable medical devices.  Parylene C is also compatible with MEMS microfabrication processes. WHAT ARE MEMS? Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) is the technology of very small [
