17-Feb-2017 | CVD vs. Sputter


The two primary methods of depositing coatings on glass are Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). Magnetron sputtering is the most common PVD process. Sputtered coatings are generally referred to as “soft-coat” because they are “painted on” by ionized metals directed at the glass. CVD coatings are referred to as “hard-coat” because they are burned onto the glass and become part of the structure. These coatings can be harder than the glass itself and boost chemical resistance. Both types of coating offer advantages and disadvantages. When evaluating the best option for a glass manufacturing facility, coating performance and ease of fabrication are important factors.
