Tapematic PST line Details

Whenever high-end metallic surfaces on objects are required, the PST Line is the sustainable alternative to today’s conventional production technologies. PST Line processes consists of three layers: a UV lacquer base coat, a thin metallic decorative sputtered film, and a protective UV lacquer top coat. The base coat serves to equalize any irregularities of the manufacturing process of the substrate.On top of the base coat, a thin metallic film is deposited using high vacuum sputtering technology. On top of the thin metallic film, another lacquer coating is applied. The top coat serves as a protection of the sputtered metallic film which is also extremely durable and stable. The PST Line process is environmentally friendly due to low energy consumption and the avoidance of special wastes. No environmentally harmful chrome derivatives are used in the process.

A leap forward in technology

And ahead…

The PST Line is the ultimate solution for any company that wishes to have control of in-house metal coating of their products, thereby guaranteeing their own customers, in turn, a stable, high quality coating and finishing system for their products.

20 Years of experience

The sputtering technology is well established and widely implemented in optical disc manufacturing; an area that Tapematic specializes in, having manufactured stand-alone sputtering and complete production lines for more than 20 years. CDs, DVDs and Blu Ray discs are typically sputtered in less than 2 seconds including handling to and from the sputtering chamber.

Sputter materials

The PST Line can be used to sputter a wide range of materials such as Aluminium, Gold, Silver, Chromium, Stainless Steel, Brass, Copper, Titanium and many others. It guarantees the lowest possible cost per item, even compared to traditional PVD or batch sputtering systems.
