LabTop 3000 Parylene Coater LabTop 3000 Parylene Coater
Parylene conformal coating is used to seal surfaces, making them resistant to contaminants, moisture, petro chemicals, corrosives, gases, acids and alkalis. The film adds minimal mass to coated surfaces and contributes no cure or thermal expansion forces to threaten delicate components. Parylene has exceptional tensile and yield strength, and is used to protect many substrate types from glass and metal to ceramics and plastics.

The LabTop 3000 bench-top coating system is a scaled-down version of production units. It features an automated coating process and vacuum-coating precision. Tangential entry and exit of the polymerizing monomer results in a low coating thickness gradient as well as good film uniformity.
