Conformal Coating fluoresces under UV light.
March 18, 2011 -
Because it fluoresces under specific spectrum of UV light, SCS Parylene C-UVF(TM) enables identification and verification of component protection. Optically clear coating exhibits same electrical, mechanical, and physical properties of SCS Parylene C while incorporating fluorescence capability used by military, defense, and aerospace industries to ensure components are protected with Parylene.

Specialty Coating Systems Introduces SCS Parylene C-UVF(TM) Conformal Coating
(Indianapolis, Indiana) - At Avionics and Defence Europe 2011, Specialty Coating Systems has introduced a new technology, SCS Parylene C-UVF(TM), a coating that fluoresces under a specific spectrum of UV light, enabling customers to identify and verify that their components are protected with SCS Parylene.
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, a characteristic that companies in the military, defense and aerospace industries rely on to ensure their components are protected with Parylene.
SCS is the world leader in Parylene coating services and technologies with ten coating centers around the world, including three in Europe, two in Asia and five in the Americas. Additionally, the company has 40 years of application coating experience in the electronics, automotive, medical device and military/aerospace industries.
