Antimony Sputtering Targets
Antimony is known as a metalloid, a unique element with both metal and non-metal characteristics. It is a good material for semiconductor components yet fire retardant even though it is exposed with an open flame. Antimony is not used by itself, instead, it is often used to make alloys combined with many different metals by melting or mixing them. The application of antimony is mostly found in many electrical industries to produce transistors. Transistors are one of the special solid properties used in electrical devices (e.g computer, TV, cell phone, calculator, etc.) to control the flow of electric current. As a semiconductor and fire retardant, antimony is also a great material used for wire cables. Covering substances with antimony sputtering targets will make a perfect component that has high conductivity that will not burn due to fire exposure. This making substances layered with antimony sputtering targets are highly cost-effective.
