Parylene Coatings for Elastomers

SCS Parylene Coatings: Providing elastomeric components with outstanding performance benefits.

Seals, O-rings, gaskets, stoppers and plungers are just a few of the elastomeric components that benefit from the protection SCS Parylene coatings offer. And, with a coefficient of friction that nears that of PTFE, Parylene coatings tie-down particulates and provide dry-film lubricity to a range of applications.

From electronics and medical to transportation, aerospace and defense applications, engineers use SCS Parylene conformal coatings to provide a barrier against the leaching of elastomeric by-products. Our conformal coatings also protect surfaces from organic solvents and inorganic reagents, acids and solutions.

Parylene coating applications include:

  • Seals
  • Gaskets and O-rings
  • Catheters
  • Tubing
  • Keypads
  • Stoppers and plunger tips

SCS Parylene benefits include:

  • Ultra-thin and conformal
  • Biocompatible and biostable
  • Dry-film lubricity
  • Reduces surface tack and stickiness
  • Protection from oils, dirt and contamination
  • Prevents flaking or dusting of the elastomeric surface
  • Excellent moisture and chemical barrier
  • Excellent dielectric properties
