Parylene use in Rubber and Key Pads
Keyboards, various push buttons, flexible joy sticks, "O" rings, sealing materials and a variety of rubber-based wrapping material, mostly silicone, become more formidable chemically and mechanically as a result of Parylene coating. Rubber-based products are non-resistant or permeable to aggressive chemicals and moisture. When the need arises for complete sealing of keyboards against aggressive chemicals (i.e. DS – 2), Parylene is widely used in preserving the flexibility and elasticity of the rubbers, as well as protecting the internal mechanics and preventing the corrosion caused by the seeping of detrimental chemicals.
