The recent growth of intelligent IoT devices highlights the need for advanced protection in electronics. Consumer wearable devices (e.g., smartwatches, fitness trackers, etc.) utilize cutting-edge barometric, temperature and altitude sensors, and worker safety is often enhanced by advanced industrial sensors. These technologies, and others, require a high level of ingress protection from a wide variety of gasses, moisture and chemicals.

This webinar will provide an overview of Parylene coatings and protected applications across multiple industries, with a specific focus on its use in “smart” sensors and IoT devices. It will also provide an overview of the unique properties and benefits of Parylene.
