We produce transparent conductive coatings using aluminum zinc oxide. Different performances are also standard, as trade-offs between resistivity and transmission. The graph shows the transmission of a conductive coating with resistivity of approximately 99 ohms per square, which has been overcoated with a single antireflection layer to increase transmission.
Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coatings were introduced in the early 1980s, and have continued to develop over time. The concept, however, is still the same. Coating your part, item, or product has many benefits to the cutting & forming tool industry. The use of a PVD coating has become widespread, particularly in applications where the cutting edge is required to be hard or sharp. Advanced Coating Service offers many PVD coatings, each with its own benefits. Based on your requirements, we’ll work with you to select the best option.
VaporTech physical vapor deposition (PVD) and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD) thin-film coatings are designed to enhance the look, feel, functionality, and durability of your products. These PVD coating colors are not simply metal layers. Instead, they are made of materials that combine metal, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, or other elements into a customized coating that can be harder than case-hardened steel, and/or more scratch-resistant than hardened chrome. Our different types of PVD coating colors range from stunning rich black to eco-friendly chrome to metallic blue. We can customize each color and its shade, so it accurately portrays your company’s brand and vision. With coating thicknesses from nanometers to micrometers, high-tolerance parts can be coated with minimal effect on critical dimensions. All of which can be implemented using our PVD coating equipment.
SDC Technologies is the recognized market leader in the development and manufacturing of premium abrasion, scratch, and chemical resistant coatings for plastics, glass, and metal substrates. SDC Technologies highly versatile, optically clear, premium formable coatings are designed to enhance the performance and durability of products in multiple industries. Suitable for dip or flow applications, these flexible coating systems deliver best-in-class abrasion, scratch and chemical resistance for polycarbonate and other plastic substrates. Specific features vary by product line, some coatings also offer permanent water washable anti-fog, primer-free adhesion to polycarbonate, tintability, and will not discolor with exposure to sunlight.
They are thin films that are superimposed on an optical component, such as lenses or professional cameras with specialized lenses that alter the way light is reflected and transmitted. It is often known as an anti-reflective coating. The performance of an theses depends on the number of layers, their thickness and the difference in reaction they have between each of them and how they are matched. Thin film are generally created by depositing dielectric and metallic materials.
