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.
