This work presents high performance multilayer coatings for a wide range of applications and substrate materials including medical implants and implantable bio-transducers. This was done by combining the glow discharge polymerization and the chemical vapor deposition of Parylene-C processes in a special designed cluster-closed coating system. An outstanding performance of the resulting multilayer in terms of adhesion to substrate and barrier properties was observed by performing the wet adhesion test in normal saline (0.9% NaCl).
