Aside from traditional liquid coatings, Parylene and fluorochemical materials serve as potential coating alternatives.
Parylene is used in a dry process wherein the coating is deposited in a gas vacuum chamber.
On the other hand, fluoropolymer surface modifiers are ultra thin coatings that are applied at a few microns in thickness.
Two of the most popular types of this ultra thin conformal coatings are
- liquid materials that dry onto the substrate
- materials which are applied in a partial vacuum deposition
