Parylene vertical coating system

A vertical chamber Parylene system

Machine Parameters

Chamber

  • Chamber configuration: Standard chamber is electro-polished stainless steel.
  • Optional Configuration: Aluminum is available upon request
  • Nominal Chamber Size: 20” dia. x 30” H (51 cm diameter, 76.25 cm H)

Parylene dimer used in the Parylene process

Parylene Dimer

The dimer is the raw material used to create the Parylene coating in the system.

We have a full range of Parylene dimers available through Thin Film Partners. These include Parylene C, N and mil standard products.

What is key is that both the quality (purity) and the price are highly competitive.

Find out more about us supplying your dimer.

Parylene process development

Everyone knows Parylene coating is complex.

Some of the most complex processes can be masking and getting the Parylene coating to adhere to the substrate. However, little information is available openly on how to complete these tasks.

Our group can help you understand what you need to succeed. Developing the process is the critical step and we will help you achieve this.

We will use our labs in the USA and our team on the ground to work through the processes together.

This will produce a solution that you can then integrate into the Parylene equipment process in your facility.
