People often wonder if their project can be parylene coated.  While there are huge list of items that can be coated with parylene, there are some limitations.  One of these limitations is size.

What Is Type XY Conformal Coating?

Posted by Sean Horn on Wed, Jan 9, 2013

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.).

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 [
