Zinc Sputtering Targets and Applications

Zinc is a chemical element with symbol Zn and atomic number 30. Zinc is the 24th most abundant element in Earth’s crust and has five stable isotopes.


Zinc is a metal that is used in many applications in many different ways. By the advance in technology zinc sputtering targets are started to be used to make thin films and have outstanding properties. The most important area that zinc sputtering targets can be used is galvanization. As all we may know by the moisture in the air we face with the problem of corrosion. For the solution of this problem zinc help us. We can product automobiles, bridges and ships by coating them with zinc sputtering targets.


We can also make zinc alloys with other metals to have more intensity and hardness. By this way zinc becomes a suitable material to be used in automobile manufacturing and the mechanical industry, thanks to its superior superplasticity.


Since zinc has good electromagnetic field resistance properties, thin zinc films obtained by sputtering targets are very effective shielding material.


And as zinc is non-magnetic, it is suitable for making components and covers of instruments and meters.


To make explosion-proof equipments zinc sputtering targets can help you due to the properties of zinc which produces no sparks, either alone or in collision with other metals.
