Sputter coater targets

EM-Tec sputter coater targets are available in a wide range of metals with sizes to fit most makes and models of sputter coater.

We offer metal targets with high purity of 99.99% or very close to, to avoid artefacts during SEM imaging and especially with EDX analysis. Therefore, some sputtering targets can be relatively expensive due to the  high purity of the precious metals used.

PLEASE NOTE: Whilst we offer very competitive pricing on all sputter coater targets our prices will vary from time to time due to fluctuations of the market prices of metals. For this reason we do not display prices online but kindly ask that you contact us for a quotation.

To help you choose the right target for your sputter coater the table below lists the targets by size to fit your coater.  The popular sizes of 54mm and 57mm are listed first.

We have also listed the targets by metal. Metal selection guide
