Specialty Coating Systems to Host Webinar

June 19, 2011

(Indianapolis, Indiana) – Specialty Coating Systems will be hosting a free, educational webinar entitled “High Performance Conformal Coatings for OEM Applications” on Thursday, July 28, 2011.

As devices and components become progressively smaller and increasingly complex, they present unique challenges for many OEM design teams. The issues aren’t just driven by project specifications and industry regulations, but by the different coating options that could be applied to any project….with varying degrees of success.

Conformal coatings are used in the medical device, electronics, automotive, military and aerospace industries for a variety of surface modification functions. The free webinar will educate partcipiants on how the polymer Parylene, Poly(para-xylylene), compares to other industry conformal coatings, including silicones, epoxies, acrylics and urethanes. It will also discuss:

  • Overview of ultra-thin (micron-level thickness), pinhole-free Parylene coatings
  • Parylene’s unique properties that enhance reliability of components
  • How Parylene is applied to result in ultra-thin, very conformal coatings
  • Examples of applications that benefit from Parylene’s properties
  • New advances that have been made in adhesion technologies
  • Advanced applications for Parylene

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.
