Coming Soon - Specifying & Achieving Desired Extrusion Performance

In Conjunction with SAE

Since 2012, the usage of extruded aluminum shapes in North American light vehicles has grown by more than 50%, to over 25 pounds per vehicle. Today, aluminum extrusions can be found in applications as varied as crush cans, trim members, rocker sections and seat backs – each with a unique set of performance requirements. As automotive aluminum extrusion applications continue to grow, engineers seeking optimized performance are increasingly going beyond the “shorthand” of alloy and temper designation and specifying the desired microstructure for the final component.

The Use of Parylene as an Advanced Conformal Coating for Increased Reliability

Heightened demands for performance and reliability often require conformal coating solutions to provide protection from threatening environments. This is particularly true in the dynamic world of electronic devices where increased complexity on smaller and smaller components poses new challenges for design and manufacturing engineers alike. Device and component manufacturers often seek key competitive advantages through the use of conformal coatings, with the driving force to enhance one or more specific properties. Included may be electrical and barrier properties, dry film lubricity or biocompatibility.
