Why is Parylene used for waterproofing circuit boards?

Parylene is a completely homogeneous coating. That means it is the same thickness all over the circuit.

This is achieved by the coating being applied as a vapour and the coating condensing onto the circuit board uniformly.

This uniformity of coating means that the water cannot easily come into contact with the circuit and cause shorts.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
