INQUIRY

Aluminum nitride is a covalently linked substance that is a nitride of aluminum with a hexagonal crystal structure. Aluminum nitride (w-AlN) in the ferrite state is a semiconductor material with a large band gap. As a result, it can be employed in deep ultraviolet photonics as a semiconductor material.

Alfa Chemistry provides one-of-a-kind surface modification services for aluminum nitride substrates with functional surfaces that improve performance in a variety of applications. You may improve the surface properties of practically any aluminum nitride-related product using our extensive and specialized surface treatment methods. Please contact us if you'd like to simply change the surface properties of your items.

Extensive Surface Modification Technology Options

Alfa Chemistry has a variety of surface coating processes for semiconductor materials that can be used to functionalize the surface of aluminum nitride substrates and impart a variety of surface features. The following are some of our surface alteration technologies, but they are not exhaustive. Please contact us for more technical information.

  • Surface Waterproof Coating Technology - We can add hydrophobic and oleophobic properties to the surface of aluminum nitride substrates, making them highly water and oil repellent and effective against all liquid penetration.
  • Particle-modified coating technology - We can improve particle behavior, reduce aggregation, and improve cross-linking by functionalizing aluminum nitride particles.
  • Adhesion Promotion Coating Technology - By functionalizing the surface of aluminum nitride substrates, we can improve their surface adhesion.
  • Lubricant Coating Technology - We are able to lubricate the surface of functionalized aluminum nitride substrates to improve their surface friction properties.

Alfa Chemistry Coating Solution Cases

Case 1: Thermally Conductive PVDF-Graphene Nanosheet Coating

Hydrophobic polymer coatings with high thermal conductivity are important for many reasons, such as effective surface heat dissipation in systems that heat up due to friction and as an energy conversion interface. Polymer coatings with high thermal conductivity are quite scarce and this becomes more challenging if the coating should have hydrophobic and waterproof properties.

The purpose of Alfa Chemistry's research is to create thermally conductive dense hydrophobic polymer coatings. Due to the excellent heat and chemical resistance of PVDF, we fabricated thermally conductive nanocomposite coatings from polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and graphene nanosheets (GnPs), which can be effectively used as functional coatings for dynamic capture and storage of ambient thermal energy.
