Diamond Coatings Inc recently introduced a new range of ITO coated glass slides featuring an SiO2 barrier layer. Here is why.
So, why are Diamox coatings the perfect solution for these and many other applications? This question can be quickly and easily answered by looking at the properties these coatings offer:
Comparable to glass in terms of transparency/clarity - yet much lighter - and combining high impact resistance with excellent flammability ratings, anti-reflective polycarbonate is the perfect material for a wide range of applications.
Due to its high transparency and conductivity being highly desirable for most optically critical and display products, ITO is now an integral feature of most sturdy capacitive touch solutions.
British physicist and winner of the 1904 Nobel Prize for Physics Lord Rayleigh (3rd Baron Rayleigh John William Strutt) discovered the first, simplest kind of AR coating in 1886, when tests he performed on tarnished old glass (at the time, chemical reactions between optical glass and the surrounding environment cause surfaces to tarnish) revealed – much to his surprise – that more light was transmitted by these tarnished pieces than by untarnished new glass.
Vacuum deposited onto a range of substrates, ITO coatings are thin films combining In2O3 (Indium Oxide) with SnO2 (Tin Oxide) that offer beneficial properties for many applications across a wide spectrum of industries.
Diamond Coatings can now apply vacuum deposited coatings onto virtually any substrate and are proud to introduce our new Patterning & ITO Laser Etching Services to our continually expanding portfolio of processing capabilities and product offerings.
Diamond Coatings is pleased to announce that we are now ITAR certified and registered with the DDTC (Directorate of Defense Trade Controls). Designed & built to meet our own, special custom specifications, Diamond Coatings' vacuum deposition plants operate from modern factory premises in the USA (Phoenix, Arizona) and in the United Kingdom (Midlands).
Diamond Coatings specialize in the design & manufacture of quality ITO Heater Windows on plastic and glass substrates. Optimal LCD display performance very much depends on temperature. In very cold environment or at low temperatures, they can therefore suffer low response times and/or potentially a loss of functionality.
