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. […]

Parylene’s Optical Properties and Performance

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Sep 6, 2019

The polymer parylene (XY) is a reliable protective conformal film that safeguards the visual clarity and color of printed circuit boards (PCBs), similar electronic assemblies and other products.  XY optical clarity seldom diminishes to the extent either the coating or the underlying substrate becomes visually indistinct, although over-exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light may eventually interfere [&

Corrosion Protection with Parylene

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Aug 23, 2019

A natural process, corrosion enacts chemical/electrochemical reactions that degrade and gradually destroy materials or components within a functional environment.  The outcome can be dangerous and costly to repair.
