Chromium is a steely-grey, lustrous, hard and brittle metal which takes a high polish, resists tarnishing, and has a high melting point. Chromium sputtering targets are widely used in hardware tool coating, decorative coating and Flat display coating. Hardware coating is used in various mechanical and metallurgical applications such as robot tools, turning tools, molds (casting, stamping, ...).The thickness of the film is generally 2~10um, and the film requires high hardness, low wear, impact resistance, and resistance with thermal shock and high adhesion porperty. Now, chromium sputtering targets are common applicated in the glass coating industry. The most important application is the preparation of automotive rearview mirrors. With the increasing requirements of automotive rearview mirrors, many companies have switched from the original aluminizing process to the vacuum sputtering chromium process.
