Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) is pleased to announce that it will host an educational webinar entitled, “Component-Level Protection Increases Reliability of Advanced Technologies” on Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015 at 2 p.m. ET | 11 a.m. PT. The webinar will be conducted by Rakesh Kumar, PhD, SCS Vice President of Technology, and Dick Molin, Sr. Medical Market Specialist, and will be available for registration at SCSwebinars.com.

Designers and manufacturers over a broad industry spectrum often seek key competitive advantages through the use of conformal coatings to preserve or enhance one or more key properties or functions. These desired functions may be electrical and barrier protection, dry film lubricity, stabilization of delicate microstructures, biocompatibility, antimicrobial features or a combination of one or more of these properties. Advances in technology have driven many part sizes and complexities beyond the capabilities of many traditional conformal coatings.

While there are a host of conformal coatings that offer one coating characteristic or another, a drawback of many modern coatings is that they are unable to protect the small, increasingly complex devices that are being designed for the latest innovative technologies. Poly(para-xylylene), known as Parylene, is an ultra-thin (measured in angstroms to microns), inert, transparent coating that meets the unique challenges for applications across industries. The biocompatibility of Parylene allows it to be used on a wide range of medical components and devices, including pacemakers, neurostimulation devices, electrosurgical tools, stents, vision and hearing assist devices, electronics, sensors, syringes, septums, seals and catheters, to name a few. The coating also increases the reliability of applications throughout the electronics, automotive, military and aerospace industries.

This brief overview will describe Parylene coatings, how they are applied, examples of applications that benefit from their properties, and advances in adhesion technologies. As materials and applications continue to advance, Parylene coatings are increasingly being used to enhance the reliability of innovative technologies.
