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 [

Choosing Parylene Thickness

Posted by Sean Horn on Wed, May 2, 2012

A question that is often brought up by customers who are new to conformal coating is what thickness to apply parylene. One of the different factors to take into account when trying to determine the proper parylene thickness is the amount of clearance needed.  If it is a printed circuit board that is an enclosure, there […]
