Aluminum Sputtering Target Safety Data Sheet



Aluminum Sputtering Target Description

Element Aluminum

Aluminum sputtering target has the same properties as metal aluminum. Aluminum, or Aluminium, is a silvery-white, soft, non-magnetic and ductile metal in the boron group. By mass, aluminum makes up about 8% of the Earth’s crust; it is the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon and the most abundant metal in the crust, though it is less common in the mantle below.

Aluminum metal is highly reactive, so pure aluminum is rare under natural conditions and is limited to extreme reducing environments. Aluminum was found to be combined with more than 270 different minerals, and the main ore of aluminum is bauxite, which consists largely of hydrated alumina with variable proportions of iron oxides.


Aluminum layers form a reflective coating found on telescopes, automotive headlamps, mirrors, packages, and toys. Aluminum sputter targets and aluminum evaporation materials are widely used in the aerospace, automotive lighting, OLED, and optical industries.

Aluminum Sputtering Target Manufacturing processes

  • Production and purification of aluminum

Aluminum is obtained by extracting Al2Ofrom bauxite and then electrolyzing Al2O3 in molten cryolite. The purity of aluminum obtained by this method is generally above 99%, but it is still cannot be a raw material for producing aluminum sputter targets. The first and the most important requirement of the target is high purity. The high-purity aluminum used in the aluminum targets is produced by the segregation method, three-layer electrolysis method or combined regional melting method. Thus it is much more expensive than industrial pure aluminum. SAM provides aluminum targets of high quality and at a competitive price.

  • Deformation treatment of aluminum sputtering target

As a raw material, the high-purity aluminum ingot is forged, rolled, and heated, so that the crystal grains in the aluminum ingot are fined and the density is increased to meet the requirements of the Al sputter target required for sputtering. Then, the deformed high-purity aluminum material is processed into a target size required for the vacuum coater. The requirements for Al target processing are high precision and high surface quality.

Aluminum Sputtering Target Packing

Our aluminum sputter targets are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
