Ultrasonic Spray Equipment for depositing Electrochromic Chemistries onto Glass
Sono-Tek ultrasonic spray nozzles are proven for spraying ITO and other chemistries such as nanowires in the manufacture of smart, or electrochromic glass. The advancement of chemical formulations in this and other functional glass applications has spurred research and development of new processes using ultrasonic spray equipment as an alternative to costly and complicated vacuum deposition techniques. As the market for energy efficient glass evolves with new resesarch and new materials, Sono-Tek is proud to assist manufacturers in the development of new coating processes. When it is time to scale up to production volume, Sono-Tek also offers systems designed to coat any width continuous electrochromic glass ribbons.

Sono-Tek is excited to be a part of this and other important research projects.
Ultrasonic spray nozzles do not use pressure to atomize liquids, making it possible to spray nanolayers of material uniformly onto glass without overspray or dripping. Proprietary materials ensure long life of the nozzles with repeatable, non-clogging performance.
