Oxide ceramic targets have very interesting properties to offer for the coatings industry with attractive future potential. As they are electrically non-conductive by nature, the area of use for possible applications is considerably limited. However, the chemical and physical structure of oxide ceramics allows them to influence the electrical conductivity in a broad range through diffusion processes or chemical reactions.
Thanks to our innovative development and research, a whole series of sub-oxide ceramic targets are manufactured, such as tantalum suboxide, aluminium suboxide, titanium suboxide or niobium suboxide. These open up a wider range of possibilities in application for the customer thanks to their unique structure.
