Specialty Coating Systems unveils AdPro Poly adhesion promotion technology
July 13, 2011
Specialty Coating Systems has introduced a new adhesion promotion technology - SCS AdPro Poly. AdPro Poly was specially engineered to solve the adhesion challenges of many polymeric materials, including polyimide substrates, enabling Parylene coatings to provide long-term reliability and protection for innovative, complex technologies, according to the company. In the electronics, medical device, automotive and military/aerospace industries, various thin-film coatings are utilized for surface modification, protection enhancement and biostability to enhance the overall reliability of polymeric devices. SCS has solved the problems of surface contamination, presence of oxide layers and low surface energy substrates, which can lead to poor adhesion by introducing AdPro Poly, a technology that enhances the adhesion of Parylene coating with polyimide and other polymeric substrates to a level that was not possible before. AdPro Poly has also demonstrated improved stability at elevated temperatures making it an excellent adhesion promotion system for harsh environment applications and is biocompatible for the medical device applications.
Radiation-curable formulations, including coatings, inks, adhesives and electronics, are cross-linked by high-intensity ultraviolet (UV) light or electron beam (EB) energy sources. Radiation-curable products are used in a wide variety of applications…
