Welcome to Acree Technologies!
Acree specializes in PVD coating technology. We develop and deposit thin film PVD coatings for a wide variety of clients and industries. Because we understand that all coating applications are unique, Acree focuses on custom coatings and deposition processes. We emphasize clear and consistent communication with clients in order to solve challenging technological problems. We pride ourselves on delivering quality and value.
Acree is a versatile and responsive high-tech business, serving commercial OEM and government markets. We have worked with companies in the following industries: medical/surgical, aerospace, automotive, tooling, plastics, hardware and cutlery. We have an exceptionally strong scientific and technical staff to help you develop your coating from concept through production.
PVD Coating Services
We provide thin film PVD coating services to deposit biomedical, tribological, wear resistant, erosion resistant, corrosion resistant, transparent conductive oxide (TCO), and DLC coatings. Our experienced scientists develop the best coating solution to meet your particular requirements. We are experts in both Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD). We utilize Cathodic Arc, Magnetron Sputtering, and HiPIMS technologies.
Research & Development Services
Acree excels in R&D services focusing on the development and integration of thin film coatings to solve customers' problems. Our scientific team is one of the best in the business, and we consistently succeed where others have failed. Some examples of customers' problems we have solved include: corrosion resistant coatings for biomedical implants, wear resistant coatings for high-speed turbine blades, and optical coatings for aviation windscreens. Our knowledge and experience create the expertise to fabricate and test a unique coating for your project.
Acree offers thin-film coating characterization and material analysis services. We have extensive in-house testing capability, including: nano-hardness testing, scratch adhesion testing, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive x-ray (EDX) for elemental analysis, surface energy testing, optical characterization, and more. Our state of the art equipment and extensive experience creates accurate results.
Acree builds custom thin film coating deposition systems, Cathodic Arc deposition heads, and pulsed power supplies for coating systems. We can lead you through a complete coating project: from initial coating development, through small scale production, to finally delivering a turn-key, fully-automated deposition system for your coating.
