Vacuum Deposition

PVD (physical vapor deposition) is a process of coating an item with another metal. The two main methods of carrying out this process are by sputtering or evaporation deposition.

The process is performed in a vacuum, which coats the desired item in a highly adhesive and consistent layer, as little as 1 micron thick. Sputtering is carried out taking metal from high purity sputtering targets which some in a range of different shapes, and grain or slugs of metal can be used for evaporation.

This process is used for a variety of different applications including communications, optical storage, electronic coating, solar energy and semi condictor industries, among others.

Cookson Industrial is able to supply you with the high-purity metals you need to manufacture these coated metals in various forms and alloys (precious and non precious).
