Custom Gold-Coating

Platypus Technologies can produce customized Gold and/or Titanium coatings on planar substrates for biological, chemical, engineering, electrical and materials science applications. We can coat your own substrates, or we can coat our substrates according to your specifications, within the following constraints:

Substrate DimensionsMinimum 10 x 10 x 0.1 mm (0.25 x 0.25 x 0.0025 in)
Maximum 165 x 165 x 3 mm (6.5 x 6.5 x 0.12 in)
Substrate MaterialVacuum-compatible to 10-7 Torr
Gold ThicknessMinimum 0 nm, Maximum 300 nm
(<7.5 nm may not provide a continuous coating)
Titanium ThicknessMinimum 0 nm, Maximum 50 nm
(<7.5 nm may not provide a continuous coating)

To receive your personal quotation for gold and titanium coatings, please contact us at 866.296.4455 (+1 608.237.1270 outside North America) or with the following information:

  • Substrate material
  • Substrate dimensions (length, width and thickness)
  • Whether you will provide the substrate or want us to source it for you
  • Thickness of titanium adhesion layer
  • Thickness of gold layer
  • Number of pieces to be coated
  • Your contact information and shipping address

Note that we can also scribe glass and silicon substrates to your preferred dimensions. We stock regular and prime-grade silicon wafers, and aluminosilicate glass for immediate scribing and can source other materials if you wish.
