Key facts about thin films

  • Thin films are typically 33 times thinner than a human hair
  • Anti-reflective coatings reduce reflections and ghost images while enhancing the transmission of light. This is invaluable for spectacle lenses, microscopes, camera lenses or endoscopes.
  • The requirements for every type of cutting, drilling, milling and turning tools continue to grow. We are the world’s number one research and design partner for coating centres everywhere.
  • Umicore Thin Film Products was the pioneer and continues to be the market leader in cylindrical (rotary) Indium Tin Oxide sputtering targets for display, photovoltaics and architectural glass coatings.
