Elastomer Applications

Parylene Improve and Protects Elastomer Components

Elastomer refers to many kinds of rubber, characterized by their ability to stretch far beyond normal capacity and bounce right back into shape.  Elastomeric products often need to function well under high stress and, in certain cases, extreme temperatures which creates a need to protect the rubber to maintain or increase durability. 

Advanced Coating’s Parylene conformal coatings are micro-thin, transparent, and flexible with characteristics that enhance the performance of rubber and elastomer components by protecting surfaces and modifying surface properties. These improvements are made without degrading the functional performance of the part.  The thin film’s elasticity and surface adhesion integrity enable the coating to accommodate elongation of the underlying elastomer without fracture or loss of the bond between the film and the substrate.

Important Benefits:

  • Dry Film Lubricity
  • Optical Clarity – Clear Nomenclature Identity
  • Removes Tackiness 
  • Pinhole-Free
  • Thoroughly Conformal
  • High Surface Bond Strength
  • Prevents Flaking or Dusting
  • Thickness Consistency
  • Chemical and Solvent Resistant
  • High Elasticity (stretches up to 200%)
