Comelec, an independent Swiss company, was founded in 1979 to provide a technological solution for a request from the very exacting watchmaking industry. Our reputation has grown through the years thanks to our expertise and the high quality of our services.
By focusing all our resources and skill on the development and use of parylene coating, we have risen to become the European leader.
As Comelec works to best meet the specific needs of a very broad spectrum of parylene applications, we are continuing to expand our services in a spirit of partnership with each of our customers.
Our proficiency with nanometric films in a range of thicknesses makes new applications possible in a variety of cutting-edge industries, for example, semi-conductors in which silicon is used to create micro and nano structures.
Treatment services are our main business. We treat your items in a controlled environment meeting your specifications. We guarantee customised, optimal surface activation, masking before treatment and very accurate checking. Based on your needs, we offer the usual three types of parylene as well as fluorinated parylene.
Comelec has short turnaround times for treatment services. The standard time frame is ten business days, with expedited service available upon request. All parameters and operations are recorded for each treatment to ensure complete traceability.
Parylene is a high-tech, ultrathin, transparent coating that is physically and chemically neutral, inert, biocompatible, and biostable. It insulates and protects, and can easily and accurately be applied in any thickness (from 50 nm to 100 µm). It is completely uniform, without pinholes, and suitable for application to very small technical components.
Taken together, these qualities make it a very attractive candidate for use in the most demanding technological fields such as electronics and microelectronics, sensors and mems, magnets and ferrites, micromechanics, watchmaking, pharmacology, elastomers, silicone and plastics, nanotechnology, medicine, aviation, and space.
