The titanium nitride sputtering target is a thin film coating material used for metal parts to harden and protect the surface thereof. The titanium nitride sputtering target is made of titanium nitride and has a chemical formula of TiN, which is an extremely hard ceramic material.
The wear and corrosion resistance of titanium nitride films is attributed to the good properties of their raw materials. In addition, the titanium nitride film can also be used for protection (due to its high hardness) or decorative purpose (due to its golden appearance) and can be used as a non-toxic medical implant for humans (due to its biocompatibility).
Here are some of the basic properties of titanium nitride sputter target.
|Material Type||Titanium Nitride|
|Color/Appearance||Yellow-Brown, Crystalline Solid|
|Melting Point||2,930 °C|
|Theoretical Density||5.4 g/cc|
|Recommend Type of Bond||Indium, Elastomer|
|Comments||Sputtering preferred. Decomposes with thermal evaporation.|
The film produced by titanium nitride target has excellent physical properties such as high hardness, high corrosion resistance, low electrical resistivity, and excellent thermal stability. Therefore, the TiN film is a good choice for the protective coating, which allows the tool to achieve a longer service life.
The tool in the picture below uses TiN coating for beautiful visual effects. This also explains its increasing use in watches and jewelry.
As for its application in medical implants, TiN has good biocompatibility, mainly due to the composition of titanium. It is non-toxic and meets FDA guidelines for use in medical devices such as surgical blades and orthopedic bone saw blades.
In addition to these applications, a small portion of TiN films are also used in the microelectronics industry. It serves as an electrically conductive connection between the active device and the metal contacts used to operate the circuit. TiN films can also be used as electrodes in bioelectronic applications, such as smart implants or in vivo biosensors, which must withstand severe corrosion caused by body fluids.
