The manufacturing of synthetic materials and their wide range of use for daily life is accompanied by essential requirements. Besides the basic performance of materials such as flexibility, elasticity, fracture strength and chemical resistance, further determinants are long term stability or biocompatibility. To overcome mismatches in surface characteristics of optimal parent material they can be customized for their intended use resulting in suitable coatings for profitable applications. The determining factor for such modifications is the preservation of basic material performance in addition to the benefit of further advantages like changed adhesive, improved repellent or antibacterial behavior. Protective coatings of selected plastic materials have been realized by depositing a few layers of diamond-like carbon (DLC). The assembly of soft plastic material and robust DLC coating is important for the resulting material characteristics. The detailed understanding of materials interphasing between these unequal materials and the conjunction of carbon centers in chemically different neighborhood is part of the presented work. Results will be transferable to other plastic materials with diverse needs, e.g. energy storage devices, water treatments and coatings for everyday commodities or industrial parts.
