SCS Electronics Coatings: Ensuring reliable performance of today’s electronics.

Conformal coatings play a critical role in protecting today’s electronic components. And as electronic packages continue to become smaller and more complex, we will continue to deliver a full offering of ultra-thin electronics coatings that meet industry needs.

SCS has been providing world-class conformal coating services to customers within the electronics, aerospace, defense, marine and space exploration industries for over 50 years, ensuring component reliability and trouble-free performance.

SCS’ comprehensive portfolio of protective coating solutions, including Parylene, liquid, plasma, ALD and multilayer coatings, provide unique properties and characteristics to meet the specific requirements of each electronics application. For example, Acrylics are well suited for applications that require a moisture barrier that can be applied easily. ALD+Parylene multilayer coatings provide the lowest water vapor transmission rate for applications that may be fully submerged under water. Parylene coatings, then, are ideal to protect electronics placed in a coastal environment from both salt corrosion and moisture.

Electronics coating applications include:

  • Printed circuit boards and assemblies
  • Sensors
  • LEDs
  • Batteries (solid state and lithium ion)
  • Electric motor components (windings, rotors and stators)
  • MEMS
  • Electronic/Smart locks
  • Capacitors
  • Wafers
  • Ferrite cores
  • Digital displays
  • Electronic encoders
  • Metal components
  • Industrial Electronics (such as oil & gas sensor electronics)

SCS conformal coating benefits include:

  • Ultra-thin and conformal
  • Biocompatible and biostable
  • Excellent moisture and chemical barrier
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Corrosion protection
  • Dry-film lubricity
  • Thermal stability
  • Excellent crevice and multi-layer penetration

Perfect splash proof protection

Whether you’re using SCS Parylenes, acrylics, epoxies, urethanes, silicones, ALD or plasma polymerized coatings, they all are an excellent choice for protecting electronic devices from exposure to moist environments – be it weather, human perspiration, salt or fresh water exposure, atmospheric conditions, etc. The excellent dielectric properties of these coatings also protect components and users from electrical charges. When these properties and others are combined, SCS conformal coatings provide unmatched protection of electronic devices and components. Learn more here.

Component repair flexibility

If you need to repair a board coated by SCS, the coating can be removed through various methods depending on the coating type. Often times, areas where coating has been removed can be recoated to its original specifications. For more information, visit Conformal Coating Removal for Board and Component Repair.
