Disadvantages of Using Parylene on Electronics

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Sep 23, 2016

Despite parylene’s numerous benefits as a conformal coating, it has several disadvantages that should be recognized before it is used.  Failure mechanisms that can emerge from parylene coatings have limited its wider scale application in comparison to liquid conformal films such as acrylic, epoxy, silicon, and urethane.  In many situations, wet coatings can provide better […]

The conformal coating process creates a protective barrier for product substrates. The type of coating material used is a consequence of several conditions: the variety of assembly/product being coated, the coating substance’s ability to provide appropriate protection, the external environment of the item’s material composition/intended use, and the coating’s process requirements
