Details
  • Two-component evaporation boat
  • Patented lasered surface treatment improves initial wetting behavior
  • Shorter initial break-in behavior and heat-up cycle
  • Larger working surface for increased evaporation rate
  • High optical density and web-speed
  • Reliable evaporation rate of > 0.35 g· min-1 · cm-2 from first break-in to end of boat life

3M™ Evaporation Boat Lasermet is a two-component boat with a specially designed lasered surface that improves initial wetting behavior, shortens the initial break-in, and allows for maximum aluminum pool. Additionally, its larger working surface increases the evaporation rate during metallization.

Patented lasering surface
Lasered surface shortens break-in and improves performance
A Lasered Surface for Improved Performance
3M™ Evaporation Boat Lasermet features a patented lasered surface treatment that improves initial wetting for easy boat break-in, as well as allowing for the maximum aluminum pool throughout the life of the boat. Aluminum better wets this 2-component boat along the whole lasered surface due to its higher TiB2 content.
