Indium Tin Oxide Coatings
Indium Tin Oxide is used to provide conductive, transparent coatings. ITO is one of the most widely used conductive, transparent oxides due to its optical transparency and electrical conductivity.
Because of the excellent optical, electronic and optoelectronic properties, Indium Tin Oxide coatings have been used in a variety of applications for R&D, science and commercial products.
Applications of ITO coatings include LCD / plasma displays and touch screens, field emission displays, photovoltaics, aircraft windows, energy conserving windows and Electrochromic and electroluminescent displays.
Indium tin oxide coatings are also used in the manufacture of IR-mirrors and FIR-filters. ITO coatings work particularly well here with low surface resistance and high film thickness to produce an optimum reflection in the upper infrared wavelength range.
Conductive transparent indium tin oxide coatings may also be applied to shield electromagnetic fields. ITO coatings are effective in the production of EM protection windows that shield electromagnetic radio waves but allow visible light transmission.
ITO heaters generate the necessary heat to extend the operating temperatures of LCDs (liquid crystal displays) within cold environments. The coating also serves to anti-fog, anti-ice and de-ice optics/optical displays.
Diamond Coatings are based in Phoenix, Arizona and offer a range of premium-quality ITO and Index Matched ITO coatings.
We offer a range of ITO coating options including our Custom Diamox ITO and Diamox+ Index-Matched ITO.
Custom Diamox ITO is applied to glass or plastic (polyester, acrylic or polycarbonate) substrates via low-temperature vacuum deposition at our own manufacturing plant.
Our substrate handling system flexibility allows coating of flat, shaped, injection-molded and free issue parts. We can also provide fully machined parts (glass or plastic) and Diamox coatings can be finely etched to create precise conductor paths. See Custom Diamox ITO Data Sheet.
Diamox+ Index-Matched ITO combines layers of metal oxides and quartz, the multi-layer coating offers all properties of Diamox ITO while offering index-matched coatings. The thickness of the quartz used in production is carefully monitored to ensure optimum transmission and reduce reflection.
This coating is far superior to a standard ITO coating, with better peak light transmissions (92/82 per cent respectively for 20ohms / sq coatings on one side of glass / polycarbonate substrates and wavelengths between 525 and 600 nm) and can be applied to plastic / glass substrates up to a coating capacity of 4m/sq.
