3M™ Evaporation Boat 2L is a two-component evaporation boat made of our improved formula of 3M™ Titanium Diboride and 3M™ Boron Nitride. This product offers the added advantages of lasermet technology, a proprietary lasered surface treatment for improved wetting.

Patented lasering surface
Lasered surface shortens break-in and improves performance
3M™ Evaporation Boats 2 Series: An Improved Formula
3M™ Evaporation Boat 2L combines the advantages of lasermet and the 3M Evaporation Boats 2 Series. These products are made of 3M™ Titanium Diboride and 3M™ Boron Nitride. Our titanium diboride is electrically conductive with high resistance to chemicals and heat, and our boron nitride is thermally conductive with high electrical resistivity. Compared with previous generations of 3M™ Evaporation Boats, this improved formulation provides:
  • Increased evaporation rates
  • Up to 30% longer boat lifetime
  • Improved break-in behavior
  • Less spitting due to homogeneous wetting and corrosion resistance
  • Energy consumption reduced by up to 10%

A Leader in Evaporation Boats
