Li vacuum coating


The pilot Li coater is used for developing new processes, trial production of Li coated materials and modelling of commercial coaters.  


High quality lithium coatings of 1 to 20 µm in thickness can be deposited (single or double-sided) on thin metal foils and polymer films. The unique Sidrabe developed process reaches a new technological level in creation of materials for Lithium batteries.


The pilot Li coater is able to deposit such layers due to the use of venting drums that ensure advanced heat removal from the processed substrate. Li is deposited from the batch loading crucibles. The coater is equipped with a computer-controlled system.
