Transparent conductive coatings

Transparent conductive coatings are obtained by magnetron deposition of indium tin oxide (ITO). Mainly used for the production of heated display glass as well as EMI shielded glass.
These glasses are optically transparent glass plates with a transparent electrically conductive layer (ITO) on one side. The specific resistance of such glass is from 4 to 300 Ω/square. The maximum size of heated glass is 425*322 mm.

I-Photonics offers ITO layer application with pre-agreed resistance. Conductive bars on a glass can be applied as an option.  Any shape of busbars can be made to ensure uniform heating of glass.
