Abstract : A manufacturing process developed for parylene coating syntactic parts has resulted in several improvements. Thin edges have been strengthened, which minimizes breakage during the manufacturing process and subsequent assembly; part and surface toughness has been improved; the coefficient of friction during assembly has been reduced; and the bonding of the pads, shoehorn, and clips has been enhanced. Improvements in the tensile strength and flexural strength of the syntactic composite as a result of the coating are discussed, and coated parts and deposited films produced by laboratory and production coaters are compared. jg p5
