Chromium Oxide Sputtering Targets
When used as coating properties, chromium is known as a chemical element that gives shiny look to other substrates coated. Chromium Oxide is an inorganic compound that is often known as a green colorant. Chromium oxide sputtering targets have been applied in various applications but mostly in medical industries. It is used as a protective coating in orthopedic implants. Chromium oxide sputtering targets are a great solution to prevent implant failure due to electrochemical corrosion. This is done by preventing any ion debris/wear released to patients’ bodies that may cause inflammation or pain. Other advantages of using chromium oxide sputtering targets are low friction and hydrophilic abilities. This means that chromium oxide sputtering targets do not react with water that may cause corrosion.
