Magnetron sputter source application in automotive glass



One of the applications of magnetron sputter source is to coat automotive glass with metal or oxide layers, such as silver, titanium, or indium tin oxide. These coatings can provide several benefits for the automotive glass, such as:

•  Thermal control: The coatings can reflect or transmit infrared radiation, which can regulate the temperature inside the vehicle and reduce the energy consumption of air conditioning. The coatings can also prevent the glass from fogging or icing in cold or humid conditions

•  Optical enhancement: The coatings can improve the optical properties of the glass, such as transmittance, reflectance, color, and glare. The coatings can also protect the glass from ultraviolet radiation, which can cause fading or cracking of the interior materials

•  Mechanical protection: The coatings can increase the mechanical strength and durability of the glass, such as hardness, scratch resistance, and impact resistance. The coatings can also prevent the glass from shattering or breaking into sharp pieces in case of an accident

Therefore, magnetron sputter source is a useful and effective method for coating automotive glass with various materials to enhance its thermal, optical, and mechanical performance. It is widely used in the automotive industry to improve the quality and safety of the vehicles
