Custom nitride compositions are manufactured to your exact specifications. Manufacturing processes can vary by product, process and end use.       

FORMS & APPLICATIONS

Forms: PVD thin film nitride compositions are available in a variety of mesh sizes & purities and a wide variety of sputtering target geometries & evaporation forms.
> powders    > targets    > spray    > pieces    > granules    > pellets   > slugs   > wire

Applications: Nitrides are especially useful for certain applications:

  • Electrical components
  • Hard coatings for cutting materials
  • Insulation for wide bandgap semiconductors
  • In GaN - for blue light LEDs
  • Coatings to improve substrate surface properties in titanium alloys, steel, carbide and aluminum components
