Chromium is a transition metal element with the atomic symbol ‘Cr’ and the atomic number of 24. With a melting point of approximately 1,907°C and a boiling point of around 2,671°C, is typically seen as a solid, gleaming, brittle silver metal. Chromium tends to be used in the refractory industry and the textile fabrication industry. Chromium is the reason for the shiny display found on wheels and bumpers for cars!
Chromium is capable of being alloyed with a number of different metals. It is namely alloyed with nickel (a material we fabricate and supply also here at Special Metal Fabrications) to achieve allows that are resistant to heat.
Sputtering targets are a product of the process of sputtering. This is a process that consists of using a low heat to create strong bonds between coating materials whatever surface you wished to be coated. What this does is create a thin film coating on a surface. This in turn enhances it’s resistance in terms of wearing and corrosion.
Sputtering targets can tend to be formed into various shapes and sizes.
A Chromium Sputtering Target will tend to be used for a number of situations. It can be used for chemical vapour deposition, physical vapour deposition and in a semiconductor. It can also be usable in some optical situations.
