Global Thin Film Coatings Market: Introduction

  • Thin film coatings are applied on optical surface to modify the transmittance and reflectance properties of the substrate on which these thin film coatings are applied. Thin film coatings are deposited by various depositing techniques, such as PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition), CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition), and sputtering, among other techniques. Thin films coatings are coated on the substrate to increase their insulation or conduction, and provide protection from light or create a reflective surface.
  • Thin film coatings are widely used in variety of applications such as optical devices, mirrors, semiconductor devices, magnetic media, and food wrap to provide a specific performance characteristic due to their physical and chemical attributes such as prevention of corrosion, antistatic properties, and adhesion properties.
