Atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition (APCVD) processes have a number of advantages over other, reduced pressure CVD techniques such as low pressure chemical vapour deposition (LPCVD) and plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD), including their suitability for high volume, continuous growth processes, the high growth rates achievable, the ease with which the CVD equipment may be retro-fitted to an existing, open production line and the conformal nature of the layers deposited.

The capability for fast throughputs and in-line processing, proven for glass industry application, can be adapted to use on metal lines.

CVD Technologies has extensive experience of coating Aluminium and Steel amongst other metals. Applications include corrosion protection, adhesion, planarisation, biocidal, and self clean

Technology approaches used include thermal CVD and Flame assisted CVD
