This showcase includes vacuum-based thin-film coating and deposition service providers using sputtering targets, evaporation sources, cathodes, metals and Our niche is multi-layer dichroic (>10) or decorative metal coatings and enhanced metal mirrors where the demand is suited to large scale production efficiencies.
Coating processing adds new functions to glass, film resin and various other substrates.
What is thin film coating? What is physical vapor deposition? What is plasma? What is sputtering? What is a rotary (cylindrical) cathode? What is magnetron sputtering? What is thin films. A familiar example is a mirror, which typically has a thin metal coating on the back of a sheet of glass to form a reflective interface.
Dielectric Layers (base and topcoat). – antireflect the silver layer in the visible. – acts as a nucleation layer for silver. – provide chemically & mechanically durability. – non-absorbing in visible spectrum. – low cost and non-toxic. ? Primer (sacrificial) Layer. – protects silver during sputtering process. – provides durability.
