SCS Conformal Coatings: Providing critical aerospace and defense missions with reliable protection.

From ocean depths to space exploration and everywhere in between, SCS conformal coatings have provided aerospace and defense applications with the mission-critical protection they demand. Specified for over 50 years, our coating solutions continue the mission of reliability.

SCS’ lightweight coating solutions are ideal for weight-sensitive components in aircraft, space probes and uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs). Conformal coatings are often relied on to protect electronics and components from moisture, fumes and dust in the harshest environments. Even chemical and biological agents, and subsequent decontamination processes, are no match for the environmental defense SCS coating solutions provide.

Aerospace and Defense coating applications include:

  • MEMS
  • Sensors
  • Circuit card assemblies
  • Motor components
  • Power supplies
  • Backplanes
  • Elastomeric components

SCS conformal coating benefits include:

  • Ultra-thin and conformal
  • Excellent moisture and chemical barrier
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Superior thermal stability
  • UV stability
  • Excellent crevice and multi-layer penetration
  • Ultra-thin films add minimal mass to delicate components

SCS provides key resources and capabilities:

  • AS/EN 9100 and ISO 9001 certified coating centers
  • Nadcap® accreditation
  • Listed on the QPL for MIL-I-46058
  • International Aerospace Database (OASIS) listing
  • Meets the requirements of IPC-CC-830
  • UL (QMJU2) recognized
  • RoHS, REACH compliant
  • ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) registered
  • 21 worldwide locations
  • Collaborations with global research and university facilities
