Comparison of Parylene C, N, and F : Similarities, differences and their application areas

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jan 10, 2020

At Diamond MT, we offer parylene coatings of different polymeric varieties (N, C, and F) as listed in the following Table. The basic parylene molecule is the Parylene N (poly-para-xylylene) monomer. Modification of the Parylene N monomer by a functional group such as Chlorine and Fluorine leads to Parylene C (poly(2-chloro-para-xylylene)) and Parylene F, respectively. […]

Perhaps the most reliable of the conformal coatings, parylene (para-xylylene di-iodide) is also one of the more expensive coating options.  Production costs typically encompass three primary expense categories — raw materials, labor, and lot volume.  Of the three, labor expenses are generally the most costly, but raw materials can add significantly to production overhead; materials’ [&he

          Applied in a gaseous form to component surfaces through a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process, parylene (Poly-para-xylylene) films protect printed circuit boards (PCBs) and similar electrical assemblies.  Gaseous CVD application supports efficient coating of complex component surfaces characterized by crevices, exposed internal areas,
