PVD coating is now indispensable for modern surface optimization. In order to achieve high quality coatings, the quality of the starting materials is an important requirement.

GfE is one of the world´s leading manufacturers of sputter targets, arc cathodes and evaporation materials for the PVD thin film technology. Our high-quality customized products made of pure metals, alloys, oxides and cermets are used for a wide range of applications. To produce special functional layers for architectural and automobile glass or in photovoltaics, you can use our products, e.g. ZnO/Al2O3 (AZOY®), chromium, titanium oxide or silicon.

GfE Coating Materials for wear resistance coatings, e.g. titanium aluminum, aluminum titanium, aluminum chromium or chromium significantly extend the life of tools and components and thus reduces production costs and environmental impact.

The use of our products, e.g. of aluminum and chromium targets in the electronics industry, allows for miniaturization and an improvement in efficiency.

In optical applications, PVD layer systems such as hafnium oxide, zirconium oxide or tantalum oxide are used in the manufacture of e.g. laser mirrors, color filters, special filters and high-quality layer systems in ophthalmics.

During the production of GfE Coating Materials, environmental concerns are fully taken into account, a policy that is reflected in our outstanding environmentally friendly and energy-efficient production technologies and recycling programs for our products.

Constantly high-quality and cost efficiency are a must. In the development of our products we focus on our customers´ requirements and provide effective solutions in close cooperation, based on more than 25 years of experience. A global network of sales partners supports us to optimize customer service abroad.

GfE manufactures PVD Coating Materials for following applications:

  • In the area of medical technology, GfE produces HDH titanium powder for porous layers on human implants. It is applied by thermal spray processes such as VPS, APS and similar technologies.

We offer our customers professional and individual service on all questions concerning the manufacturing and application of our products. Quality and safety are our permanent priority. Contact us >
