APPLIED TOPMET™ CLEAR

Thermal boat evaporation system plus inline TopCoat for Al and AlOx flexible barrier and organic topcoat, with or without high energy plasma assisted deposition.

Two advanced AlOx processes and option for organic top-coating

  • The AlOx-ECON process minimizes capital cost while producing 15-20 nanometer thin, clear barrier coatings on PET substrates
  • The AlOx-HAD (Hollow Cathode Activated Deposition) process adopts a plasma-assisted deposition, developed in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP in Germany, depositing typically 10 nanometer thin layers with excellent barrier properties on a wide range of plastic packaging films with “glass like” transparency of the AlOx layer.

Both processes integrate Applied Materials’ robust patented evaporator boat design, winding system, and in-line control system for layer thickness monitoring. Together, these innovations generate uniform AlOx layers with higher barrier performance and higher transparency.
