Plasmaterials, Inc. was established in 1987 to service the needs of the thin film industry by supplying a diversified line of high purity deposition materials, and related services to scientists and engineers in the research and development community.
Since then, we have expanded this capability to include all sectors of the thin film industry. Through an extensive manufacturing and supply network, Plasmaterials, Inc. produces and markets a full range of products for R&D, pilot and full-scale production. Materials for such diverse applications as Architecture Glass, Microelectronics, Display Technology, Transparent Conductive Coating, Packaging, and Decorative Coatings to name a few, are all produced to exact specifications.
Plasmaterials, Inc. is a leader in providing high purity materials for all types of thin film applications. Whether the requirement is for large area, single piece, enhanced design, base metal alloys for architectural glass coating, or high purity semiconductor alloys, Plasmaterials can provide state-of-the-art materials to meet the most demanding needs.
We offer a complete line of sputtering targets ranging from commercial grade to highest purity, zone refined Ultra-Pure grade. These materials can be fabricated to fit all commercially available systems or to specific dimensions required for your particular applications. A number of metallurgical techniques are employed in PVD material fabrication.
Plasmaterials, Inc., manufactures a complete line of backing plates for almost every commercially available sputtering, cathodic arc, ion deposition and laser beam ablation system. Additionally, custom backing plates can be designed, engineered and manufactured for non-conventional or in-house designed deposition systems.
Plasmaterials, Inc. provides all metal bonding to affix sputtering targets to backing plates for systems which do not utilize a bolt-on target assembly. These targets can range from elemental metals to oxides, nitrides, carbides, fluorides, compounds, refractories, ceramics, intermetallics, etc., including any combination thereof. Backing plates are typically produced from OFE copper, non-magnetic statinless steel (316 or 304), moylybdenum or aluminum.
