With our internationally patented Filtered Cathodic Vacuum Arc (FCVA) technology, coating species are 100% ionized plasma and intrinsically energetic. The energetic plasma can be directionally controlled with a electromagnetic scanning mechanism by FCVA technology.
As compared to conventional PVD and CVD technologies, FCVA produces coating species with much higher and more uniform energy. Thus, in low temperature conditions, dense ultra-high hardness, superior adhesion films can be produced by FCVA method.
Therefore, FCVA addresses the problems of high temperature deposition faced by traditional coating technologies.
FCVA coating source characteristics:
|Peak Energy||~0.1eV||~1eV||20 to 5000eV|
|Film Density (DLC Film)||~2.2g/cm3||~2.0g/cm3||~3.4g/cm3|
|Coating Uniformity||Not Adjustable||Not Adjustable||Adjustable|
