Improving Automotive Electronic Performance in Harsh Service Environments

Next generation thin film solutions for advanced vehicle protection

Register To Attend The Webinar

By 2030, electronics will account for 50% of a car’s total cost, worldwide, as the automotive industry shifts towards more autonomy.

In this webinar, you will learn:​

  1. Current and future trends driving the evolution of automotive electronic components.
  2. Challenges that these trends present for manufacturers and their design engineers.
  3. How to protect electronic components from severe service environments.
  4. Why engineers are turning to thin-film alternatives instead of the traditional protection methods.
  5. The beneficial properties of Parylene and nanocoatings.

Webinar Registration:

Electronic components intended for automotive applications face exposure to wide temperature extremes, myriad fluids, and random vibrations. Under the hood, Parylene exhibits beneficial properties conducive to reliable operation, including good abrasion resistance, low moisture permeability, and excellent thermal properties. In-cabin, nanocoatings are a competitive method for splash and moisture resistance from any liquid type.
