At VaporPulse, we provide high quality Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) coating services for our customers.
We are ALD Makers working with you to find the best solution for your application to help you advance your products from ideation to commercial reality. We are experts in using ALD and depositing high quality nanocoatings. We take pride in developing and tinkering to find the best solution for your problem. One of the benefits of selecting VaporPulse as your coating sup
plier is you get to leverage our extensive knowledge and experience in ALD without purchasing expensive systems and training new staff. Trust us, if you want to do more than deposit classical ALD processes such as alumina then hire an expert like VaporPulse for the job.
We have the following materials available by Atomic Layer Deposition and are always bringing on new materials for client projects:
- Metal Oxide: Al2O3, Aluminum Doped ZnO, HfO2, SiO2, TiO2, V2O5, ZnO, ZrO2,
- Metal: Tungsten, Platinum, Palladium
- Nitride: Boron Nitride, Titanium Nitride, Tungsten Nitride
- Metalcones (Hybrid organic-inorganic): Alucone, Zincone, Titanicone, Zircone
- PEDOT – yes that’s correct, we can deposit PEDOT
Below is our high level general approach to engagement:
We work with customers in four steps:
Step 1 – The Idea:
The first step is to contact us to discuss your immediate coating needs. Maybe its some crazy idea, that’s perfect because we thrive on those ideas to create better products. During the initial call we will discuss coating requirements, project timeline, budget and develop an overall scope of work. In short we will use this call to move from ideation to delivered product.
Step 2- Initial Evaluation and and Technical Assessment
What’s needed to meet your project goal? At this step you will tell us if your looking for a single run or formal research engagement. We can provide you a baseline understanding of the materials we produce and address your goals for the project.
To get started, the customer can ship a product or sample to our facility where it is coated and shipped back to the customer for testing. If further work is desired after the initial evaluation , we can develop a quote for services to provide additional contract coating services.
Step 3 – Prototype Phase:
VaporPulse excels in Rapid Prototyping – Building fast, low cost proof-of-concept samples that generate enough data to make a go/no-go decision is model.
In this phase we will provide the following:
- Simplified Design of Experiment
- Analyze the project for fatal flaws
- Determine if ALD is the right solution for the problem statement
- Assess the financial resources needed to accomplish goals
- Provide routine summaries of data collected
Step 4 – High Volume Manufacturing Phase:
The process of transitioning from Prototyping and Product Development to Manufacturing is complicated to say the least. At this stage planning and discussion will drive the process. VaporPulse will work with clients to decide where it makes sense to complete manufacturing. It might involve manufacturing at our facility, outsourcing to our established network of toll manufacturers, or placement of a machine at the client site.
