How to Test Parylene Adhesion

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, May 06, 2016 @ 07:30 AM

The Need for Adhesion Testing

Applied mechanical processes stimulate the binding force between surface molecules required for parylene adhesion to substrates, which is essential to both good parylene performance and assembly/component functionality.  The emergence of conditions characterized by non-adherence and delamination squander parylene’s typically exceptional substrate protection against chemical attack, corrosion and moisture, as well as its superior dielectric insulation (er = 3.1).
