Our source boats have been designed specifically for the West Technology VMD systems. These boats are engineered to endure the challenging conditions of high vacuum and the use of elevated temperatures. They are manufactured from Molybdenum to provide a low coefficient of thermal expansion, to avoid deformation of the boat, and to provide good thermal conductivity.
The good thermal conductivity of a source boat reduces the likelihood of overdevelopment and avoids the use of problematic shutter mechanisms.

|Zinc Evaporation Boat (10 items)||50006|
Proper cleaning is essential for maintaining optimal performance and extending the lifespan of your VMD system. We offer specialized cleaning agents tailored for VMD equipment. These agents effectively remove metals, contaminants, and residues, ensuring your system operates at its peak efficiency.

HIGH VACUUM GREASE
The purpose of high vacuum grease is to enhance the sealing properties of the chamber door seal and to create a protective layer on the chamber door window and LED chamber lights’ diffusers. This barrier assists in the easy cleaning of the door window and lights to maintain the visibility of the substrate being processed.
|High Vacuum Grease (50g)||50033|
POSITIVE CONTROL PADS
A positive control paper is used to verify the expected outcomes generated by your choice of VMD method. They act as a reliable tool in the monitoring process, providing a clear indication that the method was performed accurately and in accordance with established protocols.
