Process Materials supplies a wide variety of different sized sputter targets for all major PVD sputtering systems. Manufacturing technologies for this application include casting, plasma spraying, arc spraying, wire flame spraying and pressing-sintering. Rotatable target lengths up to 4000mm, magnetron-specific end block, spray layer of dog-bone, surface finished or unfinished, new targets with or without backing tube or removal of “spent” material and applying a new layer. Metals, alloys, ceramic and precious metal sputtering targets are standard products.
Process Materials carries exceptionally high standards on all products. To assist our customers with proper handling of target tubes, we recommend the following:
The target material is thermally sprayed and receives a surface finish. An adhesion-promoting layer is present on the stainless steel backing tube (SS 304). After quality control, the targets are wrapped in protective paper or foam, packed with silica gel in PVC bages and fixed in wooden crates for shipping.
