SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. operates in the physical vapor deposition (PVD) industry. The company develops, commercializes technologies, and manufactures ceramics and metals for advanced applications in photonics, solar, thin film battery, and high temperature superconductor materials. The company’s customers need its materials to produce nano layers of metals and oxides for advanced material systems. PVD coatings range from everyday items to complex computer processors. Every day applications include transparent anti-scratch coatings on eyeglasses and coatings on kitchen faucets, as well as low emissivity glass for household windows. Applications for the company’s products include semiconductors, thin film solar, flat panel displays, photonics, and an emerging technology - thin film battery. It has developed new products for the thin film solar market. Ceramics: The company produces ceramic powders through various processing techniques, including solid state and precipitation. Ceramic targets could also be produced in various ways depending on the end user applications. Majority of its products are manufactured from component chemicals and metal oxides supplied by various vendors. Metals: The company also produces metal sputtering targets and backing plates. The targets are bonded to the backing plates for application in the PVD industry. These targets could be produced by casting, hot pressing, and machining of metals and metal alloys depending on the application. Applications for metal targets are varied from applying decorative coatings for end uses, such as sink faucets to the production of various electronic, photonic, and semiconductor products. Marketing and Sales The company uses various distribution channels to reach end user markets, including direct sales by its employees, independent manufacturers’ representatives in the United States, and independent distributors and manufacturers’ representatives for international markets. It has an operating Website, www.sciengineeredmaterials.com, which includes expanded online product inquiry capabilities and additional product information. Suppliers In 2012, the company’s principal suppliers were Silicon HQ, Sincemat Company, and Johnson Matthey. Research and Development The company focuses its research and development efforts in areas that build on its expertise in multi-component ceramic oxides. Intellectual Property The company has received a patent for Fine-Particle Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O Having High Phase Purity made by a Chemical Precipitation and Low-Pressure Calcination method from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It also has received a patent for a process to join two individual linked super-conductors utilizing a melt processing technique. Competition The company’s competitors include Materion Corporation, Kurt Lesker, Heraeus, and Tosoh. History SCI Engineered Materials, Inc., an Ohio corporation, was founded in 1987.
