Configure EcoCoat® systems for versatile volume production across a wide range of applications that require precise surface modification. Ensure highly stable processes and deposition uniformity. Cost-effectively scale up to high-volume production.

Silane Monolayer Deposition System

The YES EcoCoat® system provides excellent control of the process environment by combining the latest advances in chemical vapor deposition technologies with YES plasma cleaning. This minimizes chemical usage while achieving a consistent substrate surface. It also creates the flexibility to use a wide range of organosilanes in small sample sizes to help significantly improve the cost-effectiveness for research applications requiring precise surface modification. When ready to scale to high-volume production, transition seamlessly up to the high-volume production UltraCoat system.

Precise Controls

YES EcoCoat® systems allow for precise control over temperature and the hydrolysis process. Hydration of the surface can be controlled so that the vapor-deposited coating provides a superior silane/substrate bond that is stable after exposure to atmospheric moisture, extending the time available between process steps. This critical advantage is leveraged by YES customers for mission-critical applications in genomics, medical devices, MEMS, autonomous vehicles, and more.
