High Performance, High Quality Medical Device Coatings

Parylene coatings have been utilized in the medical device industry for well over 30 years. And yet, many people in the industry have neither heard of Parylene nor utilized its unique set of attributes. Parylene has been used to enhance electrical and frictional properties, provide chemical and moisture barrier properties, improve the hygienic properties of a surface, and sometimes simply enhance the cosmetic perception of a product. Parylene is also used to enable the application of other coatings (a primer or tie-layer role) and to control the extraction or release rates of compounds from within or on a substrate.

Advanced Thermal Management Solutions for Automobiles: Design Consideration & Product Applications

With the drive towards more powerful and lower weight features in automobiles, new passive and pumped two-phase thermal management technologies are finding an increased level of importance. Due to their broad temperature spectrum, high reliability and relative light weight, heat pipes are becoming a preferred passive thermal management solution for applications beyond traditional electronics cooling. Further, as heat density levels increase, pumped two-phase cooling can offer weight and other advantages over traditional pumped liquid systems. These new technologies can provide excellent thermal management solutions for applications such as hybrid battery thermal management, waste heat recovery, powertrain cooling and IGBT cooling.
