The mechanical properties of plasma-polymerised hexane films have been investigated by nanoindentation. All the samples studied were harder and stiffer than conventional thermoplastic polymers and also exhibited lower creep rates. Systematic changes in the hardness and modulus were identified with varying deposition power, a parameter related to the degree of cross linking.
