Thin Metal Films

THE PROCESS

Thin film coatings are applied using high vacuum techniques where materials such as oxides, fluorides and very pure metals are deposited by resistive, electron beam or magnetron sputtering methods.

Deposition is controlled very precisely to give the required effect for each application and can require from over one to 160 layers of material.

Computer aided design for complex or straightforward systems can be tailored to suit our customers' specifications including military and commercial standards for performance and durability.

Our products are further enhanced by a modern, purpose-built factory with excellent clean room facilities.
