Protected Gold Coatings
EMF’s gold optical coating is ideal for high reflectance applications in the near infrared (NIR) and infrared (IR) regions and comes protected with a dielectric layer on top to meet adhesion, abrasion, temperature and humidity requirements of MIL-M-13508C.
EMF offers durable, abrasion-resistant gold coating on plastic shields, such as 3M green polycarbonate faceshields , that meet the ANSI Z87.1-2003 standard. The coating is also suitable for glass, plastic, nickel-plated aluminum and beryllium. With large coating chambers, it can be applied to substrates as large as 40″ in diameter. EMF offers a custom low temperature process designed for heat-sensitive substrates. Ion-Assisted Deposition (IAD) is available to provide enhanced durability depending on the application.
- 26 vacuum coating chambers
- 40 million sq. in. of coating capacity for high-volume production
- Short lead times
- ZERO wait time with chamber reservation system
As seen from the chart, AuMgF2 is good for far infrared at 45º AOI.
