Specialty Coating Systems Offers Free Parylene Seminars Throughout Europe

April 10, 2012

2012 Seminar locations include Frankfurt, Geneva and Stockholm

10 April 2012 (Indianapolis, Indiana) — Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) has announced its upcoming Parylene Seminar schedule.

Frankfurt, Germany (Parylene for Pharmaceutical Applications): 26 June 2012
Frankfurt, Germany (Parylene for All Applications): 27 June 2012
Geneva, Switzerland Airport (Parylene for All Applications): 28 June 2012
Stockholm, Sweden (Parylene for All Applications): 3 July 2012

The free, one-day seminars introduce Parylene coating solutions for the medical device, electronics, automotive and aerospace industries. An SCS technical specialist will present the seminars, which discuss Parylene conformal coatings as a surface modification solution for numerous material, component and device challenges. New this year, SCS will offer a seminar (on 26 June in Frankfort) presenting Parylene for Pharmaceutical Applications.

Parylene conformal coatings are ultra-thin, pinhole-free polymer coatings that offer many valuable surface treatment properties, including excellent moisture, chemical and dielectric barrier properties, thermal and UV stability, and dry-film lubricity. Parylene is equally at home in the medical device, automotive, electronics and aerospace/military industries. For example, biocompatible Parylene is applied to coronary stents and cochlear implants; thermally-resistant Parylene to automotive under-the-hood and tire pressure sensors and indicator lighting systems; UV-resistant Parylene on stadium and outdoor lighting displays; as well as chemical, moisture and dielectric barrier coatings on very high-value electronics for deep space probes and civilian and military aircraft avionics. Additionally, as nanotechnologies push their respective envelopes into smaller and smaller dimensions, performance reliability in the various environments these devices encounter has prompted many manufacturers to investigate the world of Parylene conformal coatings. Parylene is finding increasing applications in both macro as well as nano worlds.

The seminars appeal to engineers in many disciplines, including R&D, design, manufacturing, quality, materials and electronics, as well as to those involved in regulatory affairs and product management.

Whether you are casually interested in the polymer Parylene, are investigating it for possible application or have already decided to use its unique properties in your products, Specialty Coating Systems is your source … for Parylene knowledge, for coating services, and for applications expertise. To enhance your knowledge of this unique polymer, you are invited to attend one of our free educational Parylene Seminars.
