Alternative materials to traditional liquid conformal coatings

Surface modified by a  fluoropolymer conformal coatingAside 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
