Metal and oxide barrier films

Metal and oxide barrier films

Applied supplies a broad portfolio of equipment for mass production to serve the flexible barrier market for packaging and other applications where metallic, oxide or transparent barrier layers are deposited onto flexible substrates, in-vacuum by roll-to-roll web processes. These processes include evaporation by electrically heated ceramic boat; inductively heated crucibles; electron beam evaporation; or sputter deposition. Learn More

Color shifting and holographic films

Color shifting and holographic films

Various applications in the security market require electron beam (e-beam) evaporation when special layers and precise coatings are required for protecting brands and products, as well as the authenticity of currency and certificates. Solutions deposit precise layers of specialty coatings such as optical quality dielectric materials to support holographic (pre-embossed substrates) security and anti-counterfeit applications. A broad range of equipment solutions for depositing on flexible substrates are available today. Learn More

In-situ patterned metal layers

In-situ patterned metal layers

Inline printing (in-situ) roll-to-roll systems print grey-scale and patterned structures on a variety of substrates including polyethylene terephthalate film (PET), polyethylene (PE), oriented polypropylene film (OPP), cast polypropylene (CPP) and paper as an alternative solution to the offline de-metallizing process - eliminating a process step while producing differentiated packaging.

Multi-layer deposition systems

Multi-layer deposition systems

For touch panel displays of mobile electronic devices, transparent conductive oxides (TCO), mostly ITO are sputter deposited on hard-coated PET. To match the reflection appearance of sputtered ITO areas with etched free areas of uncoated substrate, “index-matching” layer stacks of high index and low index dielectrics are reactively sputtered onto the substrate. For sputter coated window films for automotive glass applications, multi-layer stacks of oxides and metals reduce the heat load from the sun. Learn More
