Sputtering targets for the production of touch panels.

Type, drag, wipe. The tactile sensors used in touch panels have to do a lot. Which is why it is good if the employed material is not only electrically conductive but is also resistant to wind, weather, and perspiration from the user's hand.

Molybdenum sputtering target
Molybdenum sputtering target to produce the wiring that connects to the ITO sensor.

Thanks to its excellent adherence to glass and high level of electrical conductivity, molybdenum has become established as a material for the electrode layers used in thin-film transistors for TFT-LCD screens. However, molybdenum is also used in capacitative touch panels with on-cell or in-cell sensors. Our customers use molybdenum to produce the wiring that connects to the ITO sensor .

In addition to electrical conductivity, are you also looking for optimum protection against corrosion? Then we can recommend our corrosion-resistant alloys molybdenum-tantalum (MoTa) and molybdenum-niobium (MoNb).

Choose your material.

Many of our customers use pure molybdenum, MoNb or MoTa for their contact layers. Do you manufacture three-part Mo-Al-Mo or Mo-Cu-Mo contact layers? We also have just the right sputtering targets for these structures.

5-star quality.

One thing is common to all our coating materials: we use special forming processes to densify to over 99 %. The benefit to you: Particularly high conductivity in the layer and rapid sputtering due to high deposition rates.
