Vacuum Metallized Films & Fabrics


Vacuum metallization is used in a variety of industries such as automotive lighting, electronics, cosmetics and product packaging, EMI/RFI/ESD shielding, vapor barrier protection, and solar/photovoltaic applications. It offers the following advantages over other processes:


Vacuum metallization is more cost-effective and can meet specific appearance requirements. It is also environmentally friendly.


Unlike traditional methods, vacuum metallization does not involve hazardous mixtures of chromium and cyanides. The cleaner process reduces risks associated with chemicals in the parts.


Vacuum metallizing meets a wide range of functional and decorative requirements and solves specific industrial coating challenges. It offers excellent EMI shielding properties, moisture or vapor resistance, and coating uniformity. Vacuum metallizing also exhibits high resistance to properties such as moisture or vapor resistance and adhesion, which enhances reflectivity.


What is vacuum metallization?

Vacuum metallization includes vacuum deposition, sputtering, ion plating and other methods to form various metallic and non-metallic thin films on the surface of products in a vacuum environment to achieve the effect of electroplating.

How does vacuum metallization differ from electroplating?

The main difference between electroplating and vacuum metallizing is cost. Vacuum metallization is usually more expensive and has a higher process complexity than electroplating.

What's the difference between PVD and IP plating?

IP stands for Ion Plating, a more detailed categorization of PVD technology. PVD methods include vacuum deposition, sputtering and ion plating (IP). IP is considered the best technology for adhesion and durability.

Why is the vacuum necessary for coating?

Metal shielding laminates are produced by continuously bonding two thin metal sheets or natural metal films to one side of a thermoplastic core material. These core materials form sheets that are lighter in weight, easy to manufacture, flat, and durable.
