VacuLayer Corp. – Vacuum Metallizing

by Web M. Webmaster Consultant

Custom thin film coatings produced by physical vapor deposition (PVD coatings) result in many different types of coatings such as IBAD coating, HR coating and ITO coating.  IBAD stands for Ion Beam Assisted Deposition and it typically yields denser higher quality coatings when compared to low energy coatings deposited without ion beam assist.


Vacuum systems employ different methods to deposit layers of material atom-by-atom or molecule-by-molecule on a surface. The process is called Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) since it is based on a physical transformation: namely that of a coating material from a solid to vapor state.  The coating material can be a metal or dielectric.

The IBAD process consists of the bombardment of the material vapor with argon ions in a vacuum chamber, including the possible introduction of a reactive gas in the chamber. The combination of the gas with the metal vapor forms a highly adherent coating, which settles on the target surface.

The result is a spotless, shiny and resistant coating, virtually 100% clean from any contamination.


Vacuum metallizing: The best answer to the needs of industry. Today, metallized coatings are used to finish a great variety of products - from CDs and DVDs, to cosmetic UV varnishing, just to mention a few of the many metallized products for mass consumption.
the manufacturing industry has welcomed PVD coating technology which has been used for many years with great results for vacuum metallization of semiconductors, plastics and cosmetics.

Nowadays in-line vacuum coating systems integrate
vacuum metallizing and UV-cured coating in a single automated processMetallizing lines have proven capable of significant improvements in production quality and cohesiveness, while achieving significant targets of cost reduction, with a lower carbon footprint.

The numerous advantages of vacuum metallizing have already persuaded the vast majority of manufacturers to convert to vacuum metallizing technology.
