Which is the best way to contact us for inquiries?

You can contact us via email ( sales@xk-sputteringtarget.com), telephone (+ 86-0731-86393472), mobile phone (86-186 9229 6659), and our sales engineers are always available during working hours.  

How long will it take you to receive our offer?

Regardless of whether your factory has the products we want, we will reply you within 1 working day after receiving your inquiry.  

What is the best way to send us drawings?

We can accept drawings by fax or email. We accept all cad formats. In order to speed up the quotation, please ensure that the dimensions and tolerances of the drawings are correct and complete.  

Do you have the inventory I need?

We provide a large inventory for regular specifications, so we may have the products you need in the warehouse. If not, our delivery time is significantly shorter than other suppliers.  

What if you can't find the product you need on our website?

Please contact our sales engineer to confirm if there are products available.  

Are you a factory or a trading company?

We are a small manufacturing factory specializing in the production of metal film materials. We are located in Changsha County, Hunan Province. You are welcome to visit our factory anytime.  

What colors can be made with targets for multi-arc ion plating?

Zirconium target + nitrogen: yellow-green to golden yellow

Zirconium target + methane: dark and light black

Zirconium target + oxygen: white, transparent film

Zirconium target + nitrogen + methane: gold, imitation rose gold


Chromium target + methane: dark and light black

Chrome target + nitrogen: light black

Chromium target + nitrogen + methane: silver gray

Chrome target + oxygen: light yellow, purple, green

Chrome target + oxygen: silver


Stainless steel target + oxygen: purple

Stainless steel target + nitrogen: blue

Stainless steel target + methane: bright black

Stainless steel target + methane + nitrogen: blue and black


Silicon target + nitrogen: black

Silicon target + oxygen: turbid white, transparent film

Silicon target + methane: yellow, green, blue, black (target material purity higher than 99% can only be adjusted to black)

Titanium Target + Oxygen: The optical film is colorfully cut off, and it will be understood without much introduction.

Titanium target + methane: dark and light black (DLC preparation can not meet the standard)

Titanium target + nitrogen: imitation gold, brass, purple, red

Titanium target + nitrogen + methane: imitation rose gold, black green, retro yellow, brown, purple


Tungsten target + nitrogen: brownish yellow

Tungsten target + methane: dark and light black

Tungsten target + oxygen: purple, bright yellow, brown, blue


The above are the commonly used materials and gases for decorative films. Generally, methane and acetylene can be substituted for each other, but methane is more effective when it comes to some colors.

What is vacuum metallization? Vacuum evaporation? Vacuum deposition?

All of these terms can be used to describe the same process, and vacuum metallization is a more specific case. Within the chamber where most of the air has been removed, the metal or other materials are heated until they evaporate. The steam travels around the chamber and condenses on the surface inside the chamber, forming a thin film.  

Why is deposition under vacuum?

There are two reasons-to lower the boiling point of the material to be deposited, and to allow subsequent vapor to propagate around the chamber without interference from gas molecules.  

What is a sputtering target?

A sputtering target is a material used to produce thin films in a technique called sputtering deposition or thin film deposition. In this process, the sputtering target material starting with a solid is decomposed into tiny particles by gaseous ions, forming a spray and coating another material, which is called a substrate. Sputter deposition usually involves the creation of semiconductors and computer chips. Therefore, most sputtering target materials are metallic elements or alloys, although some ceramic targets can be used to produce hardened thin coatings for various tools.
