A very hard ceramic substance known as titanium nitride is frequently utilised as a physical vapour deposition (PVD) coating on titanium alloys, steel, carbide, and aluminium components to enhance the surface qualities of the substrate.
Thin coatings of titanium nitride (TiN), which have great hardness and oxidation resistance, are frequently used as a hard coating material for cutting blades. But in recent years, it has become necessary to create new materials with superior properties to TiN in order to increase the longevity of coating materials.
Due to TiN’s metallic gold colour, it is used to coat costume jewellery and automotive trim for decorative purposes.
TiN coating is also well known for edge retention and corrosion resistance on machine tooling, such as drill bits and milling cutters, often improving their lifetime by a factor of three or more.
On household hardware such as doorknobs and plumbing fixtures, such as nickel- or chromium-plated substrates, TiN is also frequently used as a top-layer coating.
It serves as a coating in aerospace and military applications and is used to safeguard the shock shafts of radio controlled cars as well as the sliding surfaces of bicycle and motorcycle suspension forks.
The Global titanium nitride (TiN) thin films market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Substrata offers a complete suite of glass and silicon coated with titanium nitride.
An efficient low-temperature technique has been devised by Angstrom Engineering for producing ultra-pure, highly dense, and conductive TiN (50-70 cm) thin films onto silicon and glass substrates.
Bi-HiPIMS, a novel reactive bipolar high power impulse magnetron sputtering method, is used to accomplish this. With the help of pulsed power at extremely high peak power densities, HiPIMS produces a high level of ionisation in sputtered species.
Bipolar HiPIMS applies a positive reverse voltage following the typical negative HiPIMS pulse to both accelerate the ions toward the substrate surface and expose them to the reactive N2 gas.
To produce a high-quality and dense TiN coating without having to rely on the severe temperatures frequently necessary for more conventional sputtering techniques, this ion bombardment on the surface of the growing film is crucial.
Thin films made of titanium nitride (TiN) are strong and resistant to corrosion in harsh environments. They also have high thermal and biological stability.
Steel, carbide, and aluminium components are frequently coated with TiN as an efficient hard coating. Additionally, it serves as a tribological layer for cutting instruments, protects sliding surfaces, and is an effective non-toxic coating utilised in biomedical devices.
Microelectronics also makes use of thin-film TiN, which provides a great conductive link between active devices and metal contacts in addition to acting as a metal and silicon diffusion layer.
Additionally, a lot of research has been put into figuring out how temperature and sample preparation affect the TiN superconducting capabilities. The needs can be met by fabricating items in custom sizes and materials.
