Specialty Coating Systems Offers Webinar on Coatings for Medical Devices

October 30, 2012

(Indianapolis, Indiana) – Next week, Specialty Coating Systems will be hosting a free, educational webinar entitled “High Performance, High Quality Medical Device Coatings” on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, at 2:00 PM EST.

Parylene coatings have been utilized in the medical device industry for well over 30 years. And yet, many people in the industry have neither heard of Parylene nor utilized its unique set of attributes. Parylene has been used to enhance electrical and frictional properties, provide chemical and moisture barrier properties, improve the hygienic properties of a surface, and sometimes simply enhance the cosmetic perception of a product. Parylene is also used to enable the application of other coatings (a primer or tie-layer role) and to control the extraction or release rates of compounds from within or on a substrate.

The webinar will discuss the different variants of Parylene, the unique and highly useful attributes of each, the VDP application processes, examples where the Parylenes have solved device performance and materials challenges, plus the latest Parylene coating technologies.

The webinar will wrap up with a live Q&A session with technical staff from Specialty Coating Systems. For more information or to register for the webinar, visit SCSwebinars.com or call +317.244.1200.
