Materion Precision Coatings is one of the most diverse and technologically advanced thin film coating companies in the world. We custom manufacturer and supply precision optical filters and coatings from the UV through the Far IR for commercial, medical, defense, space, and scientific applications. We also manufacture custom Filter Arrays, DLC, Ultra-Narrow Bandpass, Linear Variable, High Reflector, Patterned Coatings, Wafer Level Coatings, Getters and flexible interconnects for medical equipment.
DLC coatings are a class of amorphous carbon material that displays properties of a diamond. The coatings have unique properties such as low friction, high hardness, and high corrosion resistance. DLC applied as a coating to other materials helps them benefit from some of those properties.
It is used throughout the industry to create an extremely hard, durable surface on exposed optical elements to withstand the harshest environments.
Our DLC coatings are applied using Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) technology. This capability compliments our full in-house suite of capabilities and can be applied to a variety of substrates.
