(patent info at www.silcotek.com/IP) is a multi-layered barrier of amorphous silicon designed specifically for low out gassing characteristics. The coating repels moisture while not interfering with knife-edge or seal integrity due to its thin profile. System contamination is quickly removed with SilcoGuard® treated vacuum components.
A low outgassing, rapid pump down, high purity coating designed to improve performance in ultra high vacuum, mass spec, and semiconductor systems.
SilcoGuard (formerly Silcosteel-UHV) reduces outgassing by 14x and significantly improves vacuum pump down in semiconductor and research systems.
