Carbon Sputtering Targets
Carbon has been known for its various applications since ancient times. Compound carbon is mostly as an alloying element with iron in manufacturing carbon steels. Several types of carbon can be found in nature and the application varies. In cutting industries, it is best to use carbon sputtering targets to coat and protect any cutting material surfaces. This is a preventive solution for cutting industries since carbon sputtering targets keep the material hard and tough (e.g water jet cutting). Without the carbon sputtering targets, the materials can deteriorate due to corrosion or abrasive reaction. Another use of carbon sputtering targets can be found in the metal manufacturing process. A carbon sputtering target can be used as a reducing agent that binds with oxygen. This is mainly done to remove impurities in metals due to its reaction with oxygen.
