SPECMAT Proprietary Thin Film Metal Coatings (MeC)
Thin Film Metallic Coatings Background:
The process involves depositing thin film metal coating on metallic substrate
using a novel Metal Coating (MeC) technology. An exhaustive search of previous
art has not revealed any published or patented data that resemble the metal
The metal coatings process has demonstrated ultra-low cost and simplicity when
compared to traditional technologies. The films (measuring up to 20 microns
thick) are very uniform, and can be applied on any oddly shaped metallic object.
Through the use of the metal coating process,
several thin metallic films have been deposited on various metallic substrates.
Our initial proof-of-concept selection include thin films of Nickel (Ni), Zinc
(Zn), Cerium (Ce), Indium (In), Bismuth (Bi), Selenium (Se), Molybdenum (Mo),
Cobalt (Co), Titanium (Ti), Vanadium (V), Barium (Ba), Tin (Sn), and Copper (Cu)
deposited on steel, and copper substrates. Based on our preliminary results,
using the metal coating technique, essentially any single metallic film or two
or more component metallic alloys can be deposited on any metallic substrate.
