With over 45 years of application and engineering expertise, SCS is the world leader in Parylene conformal coatings and technologies. We’re a direct descendant of the companies that originally developed Parylene, and we leverage that expertise on every project – from initial planning to process application.
The number of applications for Parylene coatings has grown dramatically over the years, and new applications are uncovered almost daily. Parylene coatings are used to protect and increase the reliability of devices and components in these common industries:
SCS medical coatings provide biocompatible protection for advanced technologies.
SCS Parylene coatings have protected electronic components for over 40 years.
SCS Parylene coatings provide unmatched protection in harsh environments.
Mission-critical components rely on SCS Parylene coatings.

Inhalers and nebulizers are the most common way to deliver drugs to asthmatic lungs. Recently, many more types of drugs are being delivered with inhalation technologies due to the discovery that these medications readily absorb through the alveolar region directly into blood circulation. With this expansion of use, it is important to protect both the dispensing device and the medications being dispensed. This article discusses the use of Parylene conformal coatings to enhance device reliability and ensure the success of the latest inhalation drug delivery technologies.
Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) offers a variety medical coatings and technologies to support a range of medical device applications, including elastomeric seals, forming mandrels, pacemaker components, and stents. The biocompatible, biostable SCS Parylene coatings provide excellent moisture, and chemical dielectric barrier protection. These coatings also feature a low coefficient of friction for applications where lubricity is important.
Neuromodulation is the alteration of nerve activity by the electric stimulation of a specific nerve or set of nerves and has experienced unprecedented growth in the medical industry over the past few decades. In early years, neurostimulation devices were only considered after pharmacological and/or surgical options were exhausted. Recently, these methods have been introduced sooner as a less invasive option to more effectively manage pain. As the next generation of neurostimulation devices are developed, SCS Perylene coatings are used to protect critical components, while enhancing their overall reliability.
Product performance and reliability remain a key user expectation as technologies continue to become increasingly complex. These heightened demands are often addressed by manufacturers with the use of conformal coatings that can provide distinct competitive advantages over traditional methods of component and assembly design and manufacture. In this webinar, Specialty Coating Systems speakers will address the chemistry, deposition process, and beneficial properties of Parylene conformal coatings in medical device applications.
This video introduces Parylene’s excellent barrier properties through a demonstration of circuit boards subjected to testing per ASTM B117-(03).
This video walks through the process of applying SCS Parylene conformal coatings to components through a vapor deposition polymerization process.
