Abstract

Parylene-C, a biocompatible coating material, does not adhere well to metals. This is problematic especially for biomedical devices containing gold structures. In this contribution, we present a simple method to adhere Parylene-C to gold-coated substrates based on thiol-based adhesion promoters. The effectiveness of the adhesion promoters has been demonstrated by pull-tests on autoclaved Parylene-C coated gold-substrates.
