Specialty Coating Systems Announces Parylene Seminar in Heredia, Costa Rica

October 5, 2011

Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) has announced it will hold a Parylene seminar in Heredia, Costa Rica, on Wednesday, October 5, 2011. The free educational seminar will introduce Parylene coating solutions for the medical device, electronics, automotive and aerospace industries. An SCS technical specialist will present the seminar, which discusses Parylene conformal coatings as a surface modification solution for numerous material, component and device challenges.

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 these macro as well as nano worlds.

The seminar appeals 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.
