Conformal Coating Help GuidesFull training packages are available on all areas of conformal coating and Parylene.

The training can be made up of many topics including:

  • Basic understanding
  • Equipment & material selection
  • Troubleshooting and Problem solving
  • Process development (liquid and Parylene)
  • Inspection and standards

Nexus run both wet liquid conformal coating and parylene training courses at the customer facilities, at our own premises or a mutually convenient venue.

The training course can be tailored to customer needs with materials, practical sessions, videos, samples etc added where required.
