Elastomers

Parylene offers elastomers surface protection and modification without compromises

Composed of long chainlike polymers, elastic polymers or ‘elastomers’ are best known for their unique ability to recover their original shape after being stretched many times or to great extents. These traits –high elasticity, impact resistance, gas permeability – have led to the popular use of elastomers in a wide range of applications from flexible industrial tubing to medical vascular grafts. A member of the polymer family itself, parylene confers unique performance enhancements when applied onto elastomers to enable new technologies. Deposited as a gas under vacuum, parylene is able to delicately penetrate, protect and modify the surface of a wide range of elastomers. Unlike other coatings, parylene is able to withstand the elongation of the underlying elastomer without fracture or loss of surface bond. Parylene coatings are completely inert, adhere as a gas (coating at thicknesses as low as 0.1 microns), and conform precisely to all surface topographies. Parylene protects from water, moisture, gas, dust, corrosive chemicals, electrical charges, space and even the human body. Learn more about what parylene is and how it works here.
