SCS Parylene Coatings: Ultra-thin conformal coatings provide protection for your EV design, build and brand investment
Driven by concerns about the environment and passenger safety, the transformation of the automotive market toward an EV-dominated future is already well underway, further incentivized globally by government regulations and initiatives.
These concerns have led to exponential innovation in zero-emissions vehicles, including BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicle), PHEVs (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and FCVs (Fuel Cell Vehicle), creating the proliferation of electronic components that control vehicle propulsion, safety and comfort and convenience systems. Electric vehicles currently average 100 more ECUs (Electric Control Units) than gas-powered vehicles, and that number is expected to continue growing as consumers expect more and more from their driving experience.
Sophisticated Operations Require Sophisticated Protection
The reliability and performance of vehicle electronics and sensors are of critical importance in the EV market. As such, it is important that OEMs provide world-class protection for these vital components. Brands that develop a reputation for repeated electronics failures will find it impossible to survive in this emerging, consumer-dominated market.
SCS Parylenes offer this next-level of protection. With 50 years of experience in delivering ultra-thin, pinhole-free, conformal Parylene coatings across the consumer electronics, medical device, aerospace and automotive industries, SCS solves the challenges presented by the EV market. Building on a solid foundation of reliable coatings and experience, SCS continually innovates and has developed ParyFree®, a halogen-free variant of Parylene that addresses the additional challenge of meeting evolving international environmental standards and initiatives.
