Alfa Aesar has compiled a broad representation of the more commonly used materials for evaporating and crystal growing applications. If you cannot find what you are looking for here, please contact our Specialty Sales Group to discuss your particular needs.

All purities are based on total metallic impurities unless otherwise specified. All products designated as Puratronic® or REacton® grade are automatically supplied with a Certificate of Analysis. This certificate details elements sought, detection limits and total metallic impurity levels in parts per million. Impurities are based on Total Metallic Impurities (TMI).

Tolerances for metal are normally ±10% of listed value unless specifically identified.

This section contains only slugs and sputtering targets. Granules, pieces, pellets, wires and foils are also available for the majority of pure elements. In addition, fine powders are available for various “Spraying” or “Pressing” applications. Oxides, fluorides, pieces and lump materials can be found in the inorganics section.

Materials should always be handled with gloves. After opening, materials should be kept under an inert atmosphere to minimize oxidation. Hot pressed/hip targets should be handled with care. Bonding is suggested.

Alfa Aesar offer the following types of products for Evaporation Materials:
  • Slugs
  • Pure Element Sputtering Targets
  • Compound Sputtering Targets
  • Heat Sink Grease
