Enabling Technology

If your process requirements calls for non-traditional evaporation materials or you have a challenging applications, Materion materials technologies are ready to partner in the development and production of innovative new products.

Materions vertically integrated approach to product design, manufacturing and service provides our customers with smarter solutions, simpler support and stronger relationships



Materion provides a full range of inorganic chemicals and compounds in a variety of shapes and sizes for thin film deposition.  Our experience in non-traditional evaporation materials and challenging applications is what makes Materion our customers’ First Choice as a partner in the development and production of innovative new products.

Enabling Technology

Our tightly controlled, high purity materials reduce process spitting and improve coating uniformity.   Our pre-melted forms reduce startup time and enable longer production runs.

One Partnership for Materials & Services

Because we rigorously monitor our product quality and in-house manufacturing processes, Materion Advanced Chemicals has the technology and expertise to supply superior inorganic thin film materials to any size operation from R&D to full scale production.

Smarter Solutions, Simpler Support and Stronger Relationships

As the leading global supplier of high performance alloys, Materion Microelectronics & Services engineers a wide variety of evaporation materials for vacuum deposition processes. From coarse and fine powders to granules, pellets, tablets, rods, cones, crucibles, and liners, our evaporation material are available worldwide in virtually any known inorganic composition and range of purities.


Materion Microelectronics & Services’ evaporation materials are helping to save and protect lives, defend our homeland and national security, transport us across continents in hours, and drive new discoveries in the outer reaches of space.

Used extensively in aerospace and defense, these metal matrix composites ensure military aircraft are equipped with the most precise and maneuverable components available. Our evaporation materials provide innovative tracking, sensing and acquisition systems that maintain the highest reliability under extraordinarily demanding conditions.

We also provide pre-melted evaporation materials for use in Electron-Beam Evaporation Processes.


Our innovative manufacturing technology allows us to custom prepare nearly any evaporation material to your exact specifications based on form, size, purity or compound. We prepare our own raw materials, often to customer specification, further strengthening our ability to manufacture end products to precise requirements.

Materion Microelectronics & Services offers a complete range of materials for thermal (resistive) and electron beam evaporation. A variety of shapes and sizes are produced, including:

  • Evaporation slugs
  • Granules
  • Pellets
  • Rod
  • Starter sources
  • Wire

Materion Microelectronics and Services provides standard elemental evaporation materials, and also provides complex composite synthesis for hot pressed ceramics and specialized alloys using vacuum casting techniques. Complete material characterization is performed and provided on all evaporation materials, including evaporation slugs.


Thermal (resistive) and E-beam evaporation slugs and wire deposition processes are enhanced with EVAPro™ material. EVAPro™ , a proprietary technology of Materion Microelectronics & Services, causes ultra-low internal gas entrapments and ensures the lowest defect count per wafer, from the initial start up to the last evaporation run.
