Specialty Coating Systems Introduces AdPro Poly® Adhesion Promotion Technology
June 1, 2011
(Indianapolis, Indiana) – Specialty Coating Systems is pleased to introduce a new adhesion promotion technology – SCS AdPro Poly®. AdPro Poly was specially engineered to solve the adhesion challenges of many polymeric materials, including polyimide (Kapton®) substrates, enabling Parylene coatings to provide long-term reliability and protection for innovative, complex technologies.
In the electronics, medical device, automotive and military/aerospace industries, various thin-film coatings are utilized for surface modification, protection enhancement and biostability to enhance the overall reliability of polymeric devices. According to SCS Vice President of Technology Dr. Rakesh Kumar, “One problematic aspect of using polymeric substrates relates to adhesion of such coatings to the devices’ surfaces. Factors such as surface contamination, presence of oxide layers and low surface energy substrates can lead to poor adhesion and the reduction in the effectiveness of coatings used in these devices.”
SCS has solved this problem by introducing AdPro Poly®, a technology that enhances the adhesion of Parylene coating with polyimide and other polymeric substrates to a level that was not possible before. AdPro Poly has also demonstrated improved stability at elevated temperatures making it an excellent adhesion promotion system for harsh environment applications and is biocompatible for the medical device applications.
SCS Parylene coatings, when paired with AdPro Poly, improve the long-term reliability and protection for today’s and tomorrow’s advanced technologies.
