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:
5.Coatings with specific optical or electrical properties
7.Other functional coatings
Typical applications include:
6.Magnesium alloys for automotive and aerospace industries
