Magnetron Sputtered Tin Hard Coatings on Plastics

  • O. Knotek

Advances in processing methods in the film technology field due to the introduction of the PVD technique, and especially of magnetron sputtering, allow hard coatings to be deposited. Given a suitable choice of process parameters, techniques of this kind also permit reduction of process temperatures, making it possible to coat temperature-sensitive materials such as plastics.
