Technology, expertise & services
Our coating platform typically combines organic and inorganic layers deposited at ambient temperature via an enhanced proprietary Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) process.
Our single-chamber CVD reactor allows 3D conformal deposition of Parylene, ceramic or combined Parylene/ceramic multilayers on a variety of substrates and complex geometries.
The proprietary design of our third generation of reactors offers a tight control of the coating’s thickness as well as full flexibility of the layer combinations.
Solution tailored to your needs
Engineering services in order to define the best coating solution for your product, including:
- Parylene C, N, F-VT4, F-AF4,
- Silicon-based ceramic (SiO2, SiC, SiOxCy, SiOxNy)
- Layered Parylene/ceramic coatings.
The support of a passionate team of experts with over 100 years of cumulative experience in thin film barrier coating.
Performance verification & qualification
Routine or dedicated testing of your coated parts in our lab using standardizes test methods such as:
- Adhesion testing
- Helium diffusion testing
- Thickness measurements
- Accelerated aging
- Surface insulation resistance (SIR)
- Bending test
Coating servicesRoutine coating of your products/components in an ESD safe, class 5 cleanroom environment including:
- Proprietary surface preparation techniques (cleaning, surface activation…)
- Masking/demasking options
- REACH and RoHS compliance
- Upstream/downstream subassembly steps (upon request)
- Full traceability per ISO13485 requirements (upon request)
In 2019 we validated our third generation of reactors for medical applications.
Depending on your production volume or supply chain organization, a coating system can be installed at your location.
Installation would include technology transfer, maintenance and training.
Coat-X’s technology platform is protected by a portfolio of granted patent families, patent applications, as well as unique know-how kept as trade secret.
A non-exclusive license to Coat-X intellectual property is included in the cost of production coating runs.
Exclusivity for a dedicated coating recipe or a specific application can be offered on a case by case basis.
