Metallic Coatings on Dielectric Substrates

  • M. Pietsch
  • M. Mennig


Metallic coatings are used in a broad variety of applications, for protective as well as for decorative purposes (e.g. for sanitation, mirrors, gold coatings for jewelry etc.) and also as electric conductive layers for the manufacture of printed circuit boards. Depending on the kind of substrate different coating technologies have been developed.
