Roll to Roll Sputtering
The development of custom film solutions for demanding applications like biosensors, requires experience, expertise and the right-equipment. Saint-Gobain Custom Films has been the trusted partner of many international companies when it comes to designing high quality sputtered films. Thanks to our wide-web sputtering capabilities and patented vacuum coating technologies, we can deposit a variety of materials like metals and alloys on a broad range of different substrates.
Depositing precious metals or complex stacks onto thin polymeric substrates require a tightly controlled manufacturing process. We precisely control the gases in the plasma, deposition rates and all wide-web handling equipment. Our experienced team of Scientist and Research Engineers are here to support you with the design of optical vacuum coatings, the optimization of cost-effective coatings as well as application testing.
For our PreciseAU™ Biosensor Films, we apply our latest breakthrough vacuum coating technology that allows us to achieve the same film surface resistivity levels while using a smaller amount of precious metals during the sputtering process. This provides our customers with significant cost savings and reduces their exposure to volatile precious metal spot prices. Click here to learn more about PreciseAU™ Biosensor Films.
