Materials Division Overview
Materials, more than any other product, are directly incorporated into the end product or result for our customers, with that in mind the Materials Division focuses on quality and performance as our primary responsibility. From the detailed inspection of our targets to the careful packaging regulations that ensure repeatable and expected results, KJLC® is poised to be your partner for all materials needs.
Specifically, our ISO 9001 certified Materials Division carries hundreds of pure materials, evaporation sources, and crucible liners for use in both thermal and E-beam evaporation, as well as sputter deposition processes. We offer pure elements, compounds, alloys, ceramics, intermetallics, and mixtures in a variety of shapes, sizes, and purities for R&D applications. In addition, our sputter target bonding and precious metals reclamation services save our customers time and money. Customers can access MSDS and Material Certification Sheets from our website for most materials. The Materials Division is always ensuring your standards are met by meeting our own quality demands.
Our Featured Products:
KJLC’s Ceramic Materials Manufacturing (CMM) Division manufactures advanced metal oxide ceramic materials for applications such as: the storage of energy and information, energy conversion, optics and electronics, as well as for a number of cutting-edge technologies on the horizon. Used in a variety of thin film physical vapor deposition (PVD) processes such as sputtering, laser ablation and evaporation; these materials also can be packaged as inks, suspensions, and slurries to make in non-vacuum coatings for printed electronics and as fine chemicals for end users who do their own bulk ceramic fabrication. What sets CMM apart is the willingness and ability to be a true partner in your research. CMM is helping researchers build a better tomorrow.Learn More
In addition to supplying materials used in sputtering applications, we also serve a large number of customers who utilize evaporation techniques to deposit thin films. We currently stock a wide variety of evaporation materials in various sizes, shapes and quantities, available for immediate shipment. The range of materials offered is extensive, including pure metals, precious metals, standard alloys, oxides, nitrides, and fluorides. The materials can be packaged for the small quantity user, as well as for the large volume production customer.Learn More
Our comprehensive offering of sputtering targets, evaporation sources and other deposition materials is listed by material throughout the website. Budgetary pricing for sputtering targets and deposition materials per your requirementsare available, but actual prices may vary due to market fluctuations. Precious metal pricing, as with our evaporation offering, is locked in at the time of order placement,taking the guesswork out of precious metal purchases.Learn More
KJLC enables customers to select a heater shape that best matches the substrate's area requirements and the characteristics or form of material to be heated. Filament sources can occasionally be used when heating the same material multiple times.Learn More
The Materials division enables customers to select a heater shape that best matches the substrate's area requirements and the characteristics or form of material to be heated. We offer these in molybdenum, tantalum, tungsten and a myriad of other materials. Boat sources can occasionally be used when heating the same material multiple times.Learn More
Lesker enables customers to select a heater shape that best matches the substrate's area requirements and the characteristics or form of material to be heated. Thermal box sources can occasionally be used when heating the same material multiple times.Select tantalum baffle box and the appropriate baffle cover per application.Learn More
These products help to produce thin films of chromium by evaporation for the electronics and optics industries. They represent several advantages over chromium chips, including good thermal efficiency, better regulation of film thickness, elimination of spalling, and a 99.9% pure chromium composition.Learn More
Intermetallic crucibles, a proven reliable choice for thermal evaporation of aluminum, are available through KJLC. Due to the wetting characteristics of liquid aluminum, taller crucibles help inhibit material spillover by maintaining a cool lip around the top while also extending the life of both the crucible and crucible heater. Thin films of titanium also can be evaporated from intermetallic crucibles. Film thickness may be limited to 500Å. The crucible may need to be replaced for each subsequent run.Learn More
KJLC remains a leader in target bonding technology. Our in-house service allows the Materials Division to serve our customers more quickly and ensure a quality bond every time.Indium – the preferred material for bonding sputtering targets due to its superior thermal conductivity and efficiency in drawing heat away from the target – also is more malleable and forgiving than other solders. Certain applications may require an alternative optionsuch as elastomer bonding or different backing materials. Let the experts in the Materials Division help you determine what is right for your process.Learn More
