Elcon offers precision metallized ceramic components for the military, medical, and aerospace industries. Through spray, needle, and brush coatings or screen printing our capabilities allow us to metallize on flat, cylindrical, and complex ceramic bodies. Moly-Manganese and Tungsten-Manganese are the typical base coat materials used for metallization. We specialize in metallizing ceramics with a coating thickness ranging from 0.0005” to 0.0015”. We measure the thickness of metallized coatings using XRF technology.

Aluminum oxide, beryllium oxide, and sapphire are some common materials we metallize. After metallization, a thin or thick metal coating is applied to the metallized layer to improve its wettability, preparing the substance for subsequent brazing operations. These components are widely used in a variety of industries.
