Functional coatings

Change surface properties with thin films

Coatings with a long service life

Metals, oxides, nitrides ... Thin film technologies make almost everything possible for your materials. In addition, stoichiometric composition and process parameters affect the properties of the films. Since the ultimate objective of functional coatings is their function, it can be helpful to subdivide the coatings by function. Combinations are often desirable, such as conductive and transparent, or decorative and tribological, for example. All of these coatings also need to adhere reliably to their substrates so they are often composed of several individual layers and materials. The sections below outline a selection of thin film functions and provides some well-known examples.
