What are the main uses of Molecular vapor deposition (MVD) in protecting components?
Molecular vapor deposition (MVD) is a combined Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) process that was developed to improve the protective performance properties of the individual ALD and CVD processes.
The MVD process provides protective thin films to many industries including:
- MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems)
- Industrial Inkjet Heads
- Display Technology
- Advanced Packaging
- Data Storage Industry
- Genome Sequencing
How is the MVD coating process used in different industries?
The MVD process provides low temperature vapor deposition of coatings with many different properties in many sectors.
Consider the examples below where an MVD coating has been used to provide the appropriate film properties:
Surface Energy Control
- Bio-functional layer
Device Protection / Package Sealing
- Moisture barrier
- Corrosion barrier
- Chemical barrier
- Gas/Oxygen barrier
- Anti-reflection coatings
- Electrical insulation
- Conformal films on high A/R
- Adhesion promotion
- Improved thermal stability
- Improved mechanical durability
The MVD process offers great flexibility of processing thin films and it has now been considered for electronics protection.
