Specialty Coating Systems (Indianapolis, IN) has introduced a new technology, SCS Parylene C-UVF™, a coating that fluoresces under a specific spectrum of UV light, enabling customers to identify and verify that their components are protected. Traditional Parylene coatings are ultra-thin and optically clear, making identification of coated components difficult. SCS Parylene C-UVF coatings are formed when a special compound is incorporated into the deposition process. The resultant coating is still ultra-thin, optically clear, and maintains the same electrical, mechanical and physical properties of SCS Parylene C, but it fluoresces under UV light.
