PVD service

Welcome to EuroLCDs, a trusted provider of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coatings for the LCD industry.

Our state-of-the-art sputtering machine, built by FHR Anlagebau Gmbh, allows us to offer PVD coating possibilities in addition to traditional flexoprinted coatings since 2019. Our PVD coatings are deposited at the atomic level, giving us precise control over the structure, density, and stoichiometry of the films. This process enables us to develop specific attributes like hardness, surface energy, and adhesion, among others.

Our thin film deposition services utilize a batch processing system with top-down sputtering and substrates on carriers up to 1.5x1m in size. We use RF sputter etching with Ar to clean and activate surfaces for enhanced adhesion prior to sputter deposition.

Our offerings include standard transparent conductive layers such as ITO, as well as reactive sputtering of oxides and nitrides like SiOx, Nb2O5, SiON, Si3N4, and more upon request.

Our machine is capable of DC-, MF-, and RF-mode, as well as metallic or reactive layer deposition. The modular design also allows us to use different deposition technologies in one deposition batch. Films can be deposited as upper layers or can be patterned via photolithography or laser-cut shadow masks.

Although designed primarily for glass, our horizontal carrier system allows us to coat flexible substrates as well.

We understand that cleanliness is crucial in this process, starting from particle control to a clean room zone that covers a loading/unloading table. This is important for optical grade coating. We are committed to providing the best PVD coatings to meet your needs, so contact us today to discuss how we can help you.
