Product Description
Parylene N, is poly-para-xylylene, a completely linear, highly crystalline material. Parylene N is a primary dielectric, exhibiting a very low dissapation factor, high dielectric strength, and a low dielectric constant invariant with frequency. The penetrating power of Parylene N is second only to that of Parylene HT.
