Engineering PDMS topography on microgrooved Parylene C

A new composite construct based on Parylene C and PDMS has been developed with microgrooved Parylene C that serves as a substrate for spin coating PDMS as top layer. Topographical analysis demonstrates that high spin speed is necessary to achieve an anisotropic PDMS surface with micro-scale grooves. The mechanical behavior of the composite was also evaluated through nanoindentation and the Young's modulus reveals an intermediate value among the materials tested individually.

Abstract

A new composite construct based on Parylene C and PDMS has been developed with microgrooved Parylene C that serves as a substrate for spin coating PDMS as top layer. Topographical analysis demonstrates that high spin speed is necessary to achieve an anisotropic PDMS surface with micro-scale grooves. The mechanical behavior of the composite was also evaluated through nanoindentation and the Young's modulus reveals an intermediate value among the materials tested individually.
