Raw Materials – Parylene Dimer and Adhesion Promotion
Parylene dimer is the raw form of parylene. It is the solid inserted into the machine that is broken down through the deposition process. Cost for parylene dimer can be anywhere from $200 to $5,000 per pound depending on the different type of dimer. A typical coating run is around a pound of dimer.

Conformal Coating Process – Phase 1 – Prior to Parts Arrival
Once we receive a purchase order from a customer, all of the pertinent information such as drawings, specifications, and special instructions are given to the quality department from our marketing team to create custom work instructions for that particular part. If the material to be used has not yet been determined, we work with the customer to determine the best material for their application.

How to get Repeatable Conformal Coating Thickness
Measuring your conformal coating thickness is one thing, however making it a reliable and repeatable thickness is something else all together. There are three main ways of conformal coating application where a repeatable thickness can be obtained, however, a fair degree of training and skills are needed to achieve this.
Conformal Coating Process Decision Worksheet
A common objection we receive from potential customers is that they perform conformal coating in-house as opposed to out-sourcing the coating to a vendor. Many factors are often overlooked when it comes to conformal coating, so let's go through a process decision worksheet that takes into account many variables before a final decision is reached.
