The addition of a new generation of top quality ITO coated glass slides, developed specifically with research/development laboratories in mind, to their range was recently announced by Diamond Coatings. Here is a brief run-down on what this new generation of ITO glass slides is all about and what available options are as follows…
Commonly referred to as polyester film, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film is a typically biaxially oriented or bubble extruded thermoplastic polymer. Their property balance in comparison to many other thermoplastic polymers means PET films are among the most commonly employed substrates within the converting industry.
Featuring outstanding heat stability*, tensile strength (220 MPa TD/MD) and elongation percentages (TD 110%; MD 130%), PEN (polyethylene naphthalate) film is highly transparent (haze 2%; total light transmittance 87%), smooth-surfaced and offers good resistance to chemicals.
Diamond Coatings is opening a new state of the art manufacturing facility in the USA in early 2016.
