Combining innovative ideas and years of experience with ultra-modern technology and state-of-the-art coating techniques, Diamond Coatings Inc have successfully established themselves as a market-leading US ITO coatings supplier.
Operating vacuum coating plants designed & built to their own specifications within ultra-modern facilities in Phoenix, Arizona, Diamond Coatings Inc offer a diversity of premium-quality ITO and Index Matched ITO coatings.
Highly conductive, transparent and boasting excellent electronic, opto-electronic and optical properties, our ITO coatings are ideal for a practically unlimited range of research & development, science, military, entertainment and other commercial applications including, among others:
We currently offer two distinct ITO coating options:
Custom Diamox ITO – Applied to varying glass or plastic (polyester, acrylic or polycarbonate) substrates via low-temperature vacuum deposition, our highly conductive, transparent Custom Diamox ITO coating can be produced with a coating capacity of 4m/sq across a drum coater system and a range of sheet resistances (depending on coat thickness).
Thoroughly tested (MIL STD 48497), Custom Diamox ITO coatings showed no evident reductions in adhesion/sheet resistance and no optical degradation when subjected to thermal & humidity cycling and salt spray.
Resistant to moisture/water penetration, flaking and peeling; crazing, cracking and delamination, Custom Diamox ITO coatings offer high RFI/EMI shielding effectiveness (26dB at 1GHz and 58dB at 1MHz; tested to MIL STD 215) and typical (for 20ohms/sq coatings on glass/polycarbonate and wavelengths between 525 and 600 nm) respective peak light transmissions of 87/81 per cent.
Flexibility within our substrate handling system permits 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.
Diamox+ Index-Matched ITO – Combining layers of metal oxides and quartz*, this multi-layer coating offers all characteristics/properties of Diamox ITO while providing for index-matched coatings.
*To suppress undesirable reflection and enhance transmission, the thickness of this quartz layer is subject to careful control.
Offering much 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) than standard ITO coatings, Diamox+ coatings can be applied to plastic/glass substrates up to a coating capacity of 4m/sq.
We have designed many of our Multi-Layer AR (Anti-reflection), ITO and Index-Matched ITO coatings specifically to meet customer specifications (transmission/reflection graphs available upon request).
