The benefits of conductive ITO coatings make Diamond Coatings’ Diamox ITO coatings the best solution for applications across many different industries. But why is our conductive coating the best on the market and what exactly are its benefits? Read on to find out…

Why Diamond Coatings Conductive Coatings?

Diamond Coatings primary Conductive Coating, the Transparent Conductive Coating was recently announced as one of the winners of Corporate Vision Magazine’s prestigious 2019 Business Innovator Awards. Here is why we received the “Best ITO & Optical Coatings Company 2019” Award:

Combining over 17 years of experience with the very latest in technology, our dedicated teams both here in the UK and at our plant in the USA (Phoenix, Arizona) continually cooperate closely with clients from around the world and across all industries to develop innovative new conductive coating solutions.

Benefits of Transparent Conductive Coatings

Our Conductive Coatings versatility is the first of many benefits:

Vacuum deposited onto a diversity of substrates including polyester and polycarbonate; acrylic and glass in the shape of thin films with varying thicknesses and sheet resistances (starting at just 2.5 Ohms/sq., please note, however, that sheet resistances below 10 ohms/sq. can only be produced on glass substrates), ITO coatings have higher electrical conductivity and higher optical transparency* than other types of doped metal oxide. This, of course, makes them the ideal solution for a broad range of different electronic and optoelectronic applications.

*At wavelengths between 525 and 600 nm, a 20 ohms/sq. coating on polycarbonate or glass has typical light transmissions (peak) of 81% and 87% respectively.

The second major benefit of transparent conductive ITO coatings is their hardwearing durability:

Showing no evidence of coating adhesion/sheet resistance reductions or optical degradation when exposed to MIL STD 48497 testing (i.e. salt spray and thermal/humidity cycling), Diamox coatings offer good resistance to water/moisture penetration and chemical stability, as well as being resistant to peeling, flaking and cracking; delaminating and crazing.

These properties combine to make ITO coatings perfect for applications likely to be exposed to harsh environmental conditions and frequent heavy use.

Another benefit offered by Diamox ITO coatings is shielding effectiveness:

Offering respective shielding effectiveness rates of 26dB at 1GHz & 58dB at 1MHz, ITO coatings inhibit, minimise and potentially eliminate ESD, EMI and RFI (Electro-Static Discharge, Electromagnetic Interface & Radio Frequency Interface) effects – which, of course, serves to improve electronic devices’ reception and overall performance.

Finally, unlike many other doped metal oxide coatings, ITO coatings can also be etched to precision to create intricate, fine conductor paths and comply with even the most complex of customers’ patterning requirements.

Considering the constant demand for ever smaller, ever lighter devices, this ability is, of course, of significant advantage for all kinds of industrial, commercial and consumer-related applications.

Conductive Paint – Uses and Applications

Conductive paint contains nanoparticles of metal such as copper or silver or malleable soft metals that are highly conductive or will support a higher current transmission, within a solvent-based liquid. The nanoparticles are thin to maintain the wetting and binding feature quality of regular paint.

What is ITO Glass?

ITO glass is manufactured by depositing indium tin oxide in variable proportions onto the surface of numerous glass substrates.
ITO Glass is a prominent material used in research and industry, due to its high optical transparency and a broad range of uses.
