Vacuum Metalizing Services

For over 60 years, our customers have relied on us to meet their vacuum metalizing and PVD sputtering needs. Vacuum metalizing is the process of evaporating metals, most commonly aluminum, inside a vacuum chamber where it bonds to the desired substrate to achieve a uniform metalized layer.

Thermal evaporation, otherwise known as vacuum metalizing, is the most common PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process. Sputtering is the process whereby atoms are ejected from a target (e.g. chrome, stainless steel, copper, etc.) and are deposited on the substrate to form a thin, metalized coating.

Vacuum Metalizing has many functional and decorative applications, including but not limited to:

  • EMI/RFI shielding
  • Decorative chrome and metallic finishes
  • Highly reflective coatings
  • Heat shielding
  • Vapor barriers

Engineering Expertise from Prototype to Final Product

You have options when choosing a coating process, and selecting the right process for a particular application is critical.

It is just as important to work with vacuum coating experts to ensure all manufacturing requirements — like materials, budget, durability, quality, and production scale — are met. Our team of experts is ready to help you select the right process to meet your individual business needs.

Quality Coating Results

Mueller Corporation is dedicated to delivering services that meet job specifications and exceed client expectations.

Whether the end product is a reflective surface for a headlight, a decorative coating for an appliance, or EMI/RFI shielding coating, we work hard to ensure our processes deliver the best results in the industry.

Vacuum Metalizing Benefits

Vacuum coating processes have expanded far beyond a final product simply “looking good.” Material properties can be engineered to provide additional benefits in the end product, such as:

  • Shielding from electronic interference
  • Barriers against moisture or vapor
  • High tolerances for uniform thickness and excellent adhesion
  • Unique reflective qualities
