Sputtering targets

Target Bonding

The thermal and mechanical integrity of the bond between a sputtering target and its backing plate is essential to optimal performance.
To achieve that goal, the physical properties of the target and backing plate must be considered, and the right bonding process selected.
Materion offers a choice of solder bonding, diffusion bonding and proprietary high-temperature bonding.  This is Target Bonding.
