Ion-beam sputtering

In the ion-beam sputtering (IBS) coating technology, the coating material (used in the form of targets) is abraded through bombardment by ion sources. During sputtering, the material contacts the substrate with high energy and becomes deposited at dense intervals.

PVD coating

The broad-band reflectivity of metallized parts mean that they can often be found in very large mirrors, such as those used in astronomy. However, they are also used to enhance the value of products by improving their reflectivity or to apply decorative surface effects.

Climate test

The aim of temperature and climate tests is to provide evidence of the test subject’s degree of the resistance to the environmental effects of temperature in combination with humidity (climate). The tests are aimed at the durability of materials under extreme conditions.
