Article Summary

  • Parylene is the protective coating of choice for challenging robotics applications
  • The chemical vapor deposition process unique to Parylene leads to a uniform layer of protection that is pinhole and defect-free.
  • Parylene adds minimal mass to coated surfaces, has exceptional tensile and yield strength, is dielectric, and protects corrosion, spray, moisture, fungus, dust, and other contaminations from harsh environments.
  • HZO provides a scalable, more cost-efficient Parylene solution, making it available to manufacturers that could not previously consider it an option.
  • Sarcos Robotics, an HZO customer, used Parylene to protect components of the Guardian™ S remote visual inspection and surveillance robot and has had zero product returns attributed to coating issues.
