Leading applicator of parylene conformal coatings for protection of electronic and medical components
PARAMUS, N.J. - February 8, 2017 - Curtiss-Wright’s Surface Technologies (CWST) division announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the net assets of Para Tech Coating, Inc. (“Para Tech”). With facilities in Aliso Viejo, CA; Middleton, CT and Neenah, WI, Para Tech is a leading provider of parylene conformal coating services for Aerospace & Defense electronic components as well as critical Medical devices.
"We are excited to combine Para Tech’s strong application engineering and equipment manufacturing capabilities with our existing network of parylene coating facilities,” said David Rivellini, Vice President and General Manager, Surface Technologies division. “We now have six locations worldwide providing parylene coating services and the infrastructure to facilitate further international expansion of this unique coating.”
Parylene is a polymeric coating applied by vapor deposition in a vacuum environment to ensure coating purity and integrity. It is well suited to ruggedizing high value printed circuit boards and electronic components due to its combination of high dielectric strength, moisture resistance, thin profile, and transparency. Medical applications also benefit from parylene’s intrinsic properties of lubricity, biocompatibility and resistance to solvents, radiation and bacteria.
