What is magnetron sputtering ?

  Magnetron sputtering is a physical vapor deposition coating technique used to deposit thin films of materials, such as metals, plastics and ceramics, onto other surfaces or substrates.

  The process is carried out in a vacuum or low-pressure environment where a magnetic field is used to concentrate high-energy ions onto the coating material in order to eject the atoms. Magnetron sputtering is widely used in scientific and commercial applications such as improving the corrosion resistance properties of steel and magnesium alloys.

  In addition,the technique is widely used in commercial, industrial, scientific, and research industries. Typical coatings include:

        1.Wear-resistant coatings

  2.Low-friction coating

  3.Decorative coatings

  4.Corrosion-resistant coatings

  5.Coatings with specific optical or electrical properties

  6.Medical coatings

  7.Other functional coatings

  Typical applications include:

  1.Displays

  2.Tools

  3.Architectural glass

  4.Photovoltaic materials

  5.Superconductor materials

  6.Magnesium alloys for automotive and aerospace industries
