Plasma polymerized hexamethyldisiloxane (PP-HMDSO) thin films have been obtained in a DC glow discharge from oxygen/HMDSO gas mixtures. Such films are successfully applied to the pr otection of Al metallisations on plastic substrates. The composition of the films (SiOxCy:H) may be varied from organic (polymer-like) to inorganic (SiO2-like) by varying the oxygen-to-monomer ration in the precursor gas mixture. The structural and functional properties of the films are studied as a function of the plasma parameters.
