SCS Automotive Coatings: Providing performance and protection that are miles ahead.

Increasing passenger safety and decreasing carbon emissions are key themes across the global transportation industry. Safety is achieved using sensors and automation that has proven to help reduce the risk of major accidents, while Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the driving force behind reducing a vehicle impacts on global carbon emissions.

The transportation industry has long relied on conformal coatings to help protect critical electrical systems and components. From Parylenes to UV curable coatings, plasma coatings and more, SCS offers a comprehensive portfolio of coating solutions to align with the protection needs of automotive, train and bike customers. Industry-leading products such as SCS Parylene HT®, which is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 450ºC, halogen-free ParyFree®, UV curable coatings like UV40, acrylics and epoxies help serve the needs of OEM, Tier 1 and Tier 2 manufacturers in this evolving market.
