Evaporation materials are used in vacuum deposition processes to produce a thin film on a substrate. They’re commonly utilized in various high-demand sectors, including the electronics, optical, medical and energy industries— they can have a wide range of properties and applications, depending on the material used.
Here are five common evaporation materials used for industrial applications:
Aluminum is one of the most widely used evaporation materials due to its low cost, good thermal and electrical conductivity, and high reflectivity. It is often used in the production of electronic components, such as integrated circuits and solar cells.
Gold is a popular evaporation material due to its high electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, and aesthetic appeal. It is commonly used in the production of of optical fillers, conductors and electronic components.
Silver is another popular evaporation material due to its high electrical conductivity and reflectivity. It is often used in the production of mirrors, electronic components and solar cells.
Chromium is a hard and corrosion-resistant metal that is commonly used as an evaporation material in the production of printed circuits, reflectors and adhesion layers between multiple layers of coatings.
Titanium is a lightweight and corrosion-resistant metal that is often used as an evaporation material in the production of medical implants, aerospace components and electronic devices.
