SilcoGuard® is a high purity silicon barrier coating process designed to minimize vacuum system outgassing and contamination in ultra high vacuum chambers and semiconductor process flow paths. SilcoGuard is bonded to stainless steel, alloy, glass, and ceramic surfaces by SilcoTek's patented chemical vapor deposition process. The SilcoGuard high purity moisture repelling surface acts as a barrier, isolating any impurities trapped on or in the surface while minimizing outgassing and process contamination in UHV environments.

SilcoGuard® is a non reactive high temperature CVD coating
The SilcoGuard coating technology maximizes the performance of UHV systems. Comparative studies show SilcoGuard reduces pump down time by up to 3X or more. Coated UHV surfaces improve system productivity while preventing contamination from stainless steel flow paths. SilcoGuard significantly improves moisture management in semiconductor, analytical and UHV systems.
