Chromium has a melting point of 1,857°C, a density of 7.2 g/cc, and a vapor pressure of 10-4 Torr at 1,157°C. Its name comes from the Greek word “chroma”, which means color, due to its very colorful compounds. It is widely used in the automobile industry to form a shiny coating found on wheels and bumpers. Chromium is used in many vacuum applications such as automotive glass coatings, photovoltaic cell fabrication, battery fabrication, and decorative and corrosion resistant coatings.


High purity evaporation materials play a huge role in deposition processes to ensure high quality deposited film. Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) specializes in producing up to 99.99% purity chromium evaporation materials using quality assurance processes to guarantee product reliability.
