SCS to Present “Solving Harsh Environment Protection Challenges with Parylene Coatings” during Tech Briefs Webinar

October 26, 2018

October 26, 2018 (Indianapolis, IN) – Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) is pleased to announce that it will participate in a Tech Briefs webinar on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018 at 2 p.m. EST. The webinar, entitled, “Solving Harsh Environment Protection Challenges with Parylene Coatings,” will be presented by SCS’ Tim Seifert, Aerospace & Defense Market Manager, and Rakesh Kumar, Ph.D., Vice President of Technology. The webinar is now open for registration at: scswebinars.com.

Conformal coatings are often used in the electronics, medical device, transportation, aerospace and defense industries to protect products from their surrounding environments. As new materials are used in advancing technologies and as end products are required to survive increasingly harsh operating conditions, many conformal coatings struggle to provide durable, lasting protection.

For more than 45 years, Parylene conformal coatings have enhanced the reliability of numerous devices and parts, including circuit boards, sensors, MEMS/semiconductor products, LEDs, implantable medical devices, and elastomeric and metal components, in a wide array of applications and environments.

This webinar will offer an opportunity to learn more about Parylene conformal coatings – the coating process, applications Parylenes protect today, and the properties and benefits they can offer your products, including:

  • Thin, lightweight protection
  • Truly conformal coverage, with no air-gaps or voids
  • Excellent moisture and chemical barrier
  • High dielectric strength
  • Thermal stability up to 350°C long-term (450°C short-term)
  • Lubricity/low coefficient of friction

The webinar also will discuss advances in adhesion technologies, which have significantly increased bonding strength, as well as the role Parylene plays in advanced micro and nano-level technologies.

As applications, materials and technologies evolve, Parylene conformal coatings continue to improve performance and add measurable value to products around the world. For more information, contact SCS at +1.317.244.1200 or visit www.scscoatings.com.
