SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. operates as a supplier and manufacturer of advanced materials for physical vapor deposition (PVD) thin film applications worldwide. The company is focused on specific markets within the PVD industry (photonics, thin film solar (TFS), glass, thin film battery and transparent electronics). Through partnerships with end users and original equipment manufacturers, the company develops customized solutions. The company’s customers need its materials to produce nano layers of metals and oxides for advanced material systems. Applications for the company’s products include semiconductors, TFS, flat panel displays, photonics and an emerging technology - Thin Film Battery. The company has developed products for the TFS market. The company continued to develop transparent conductive oxide (TCO) systems for the solar and glass markets and added domestic and international customers for these products. The company is having tests conducted with its TCO material in display applications. In addition, the company has a R&D program to develop materials for thin film transistor applications in displays. Ceramics The company is capable of producing ceramic powders through different processing techniques, including solid state and precipitation. Ceramic targets could also be produced in various ways depending on the end user applications. Production techniques include sintering, cold isostatic pressing and hot pressing. Majority of the company’s products are manufactured from component chemicals and metal oxides supplied by various vendors. Metals In addition to the ceramic targets, the company produces metal sputtering targets and backing plates. The targets are bonded to the backing plates for application in the PVD industry. These targets could be produced by casting, hot pressing and machining of metals and metal alloys depending on the application. Applications for metal targets are varied from applying decorative coatings for end uses, such as sink faucets to the production of various electronic, photonic and semiconductor products. The company purchases various metals of reasonable high purity (often above 99.9%) for its applications. Suppliers The company’s principal suppliers were Six Nine Metals, 5N Plus, and Johnson Matthey in 2015. New Product Initiatives The company continues to develop TCO target materials for the Thin Film Solar market in partnership with both original equipment manufacturers and Thin Film Solar Cell panel fabricators. Intellectual Property The company has received a patent for Fine-Particle Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O Having High Phase Purity made by a Chemical Precipitation and Low-Pressure Calcination method from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The company has also received a patent for a process to join two individual linked super-conductors utilizing a melt processing technique. Competition The company competes with Materion Corporation, Kurt Lesker, Heraeus and Tosoh. History SCI Engineered Materials, Inc., an Ohio corporation, was founded in 1987. The company was incorporated in 1987. The company was formerly known as Superconductive Components, Inc. and changed its name to SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. in 2007.
