Abstract

A study of thin-film continuous coating process by vapour deposition P. Gimondo," F. Arezzo,* B. Grifoni,* G.

Physical vapour deposition (PVD) with its many variants is one of the most advanced of these technologies. Recently the emphasis has been on the conversion of discontinuous PVD processes into continuous ones, aiming to replace conventional, electrolytic methods for the coating of steel strips. In this study a special apparatus capable of simulating the PVD process in a continuous mode was utilized. Pretreatment and deposition processes were performed under a variety of experimental conditions, e.g. electron beam or electric resistance evaporation, ion beam assistance and mechanical brushing. The results of zinc a
