Ceramic Pro Introduces Ceramic Pro Ion

Ceramic Pro Ion is a two-component ceramic coating system that utilizes Ion Exchange Technology to fuse multiple coating layers (Ceramic Pro Ion Base plus Ion Top Coat) into a single, durable protected surface. This coating technology increases the strength of the atomic bond of both coatings and the original substrate once applied, accordingto the company.

The product is designed specifically for the company’s Elite Dealer Program. Key features include optimal abrasive resistance and improved chemical resistance. A single layer of Ion provides the same protection as two layers of traditional nanoceramic coatings, according to the company.

Measurement Technology

k-Space Launches Thin Film Metrology Solution

k-Space Associates announced the launch of its newest thin film metrology tool—the kSA XRF. It measures film thickness for materials that are too thin for reliable optical measurements. This technique has been proven to measure semiconductor and dielectric layers on glass panels, wafers and susceptors for applications in solar, power and other thin film devices.

The kSA XRF uses an X-ray source, detector and proprietary software to measure the X-ray emission spectrum, which is then used to calculate film thickness in real-time. It measures the appropriate atomic species based on the customer’s unique coating formula and measurement needs. The kSA XRF can be configured for a standalone benchtop setup or over a conveyor for in-line inspection and manufacturing process control, according to the company.
