SCS LED Coatings: Optically clear protection ensures long-life performance.

For every LED application, there’s often a harsh environment waiting to impact its long-term performance. But the temperature extremes, humidity and UV that many LEDs face are no match for SCS Parylene coatings. In addition to their excellent moisture and dielectric barrier properties, SCS Parylene coatings are ultra-thin, usually micron-range thickness, so they add minimal mass to LED components – an important factor when considering the overall weight of LED displays. Additionally, the coatings are optically clear, ensuring that Parylene-coated LEDs shine bright during their long performance life.

LED coating applications include:

  • Video displays
  • Electronic billboards
  • Transportation signage
  • Aviation lighting
  • Traffic signals
  • Scoreboards
  • Marine lighting
  • Commercial refrigeration
  • Vehicle lighting
  • Outdoor illumination

SCS Parylene benefits include:

  • Ultra-thin, lightweight and conformal
  • Optically clear
  • Excellent moisture and chemical barrier
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Superior UV stability
  • Excellent thermal stability (up to 450°C short-term)
  • Excellent crevice and multi-layer penetration

SCS provides key resources and capabilities:

  • AS9100 and ISO 9001 certified coating centers
  • Meets the requirements of IPC-CC-830
  • Listed on the QPL for MIL-I-46058
  • UL (QMJU2) recognized
  • RoHS, REACH compliant

Component repair flexibility

If you ever need to repair a board coated with SCS Parylene, the coating can be removed in several ways, including abrasion, incision and removal, excimer laser removal, heat softening, micro abrasion and plasma etching. Many times, areas where Parylene has been removed can be recoated to its original specifications.
