IREIS develops coatings that can modify the electrical properties (conductivity, resistance,…) of surfaces of the pieces allowing in this way to protect the equipment of divers forms from exterior solicitations that can slow or prevent their functioning. The metallic conductive thin layers can be deposed on all type of materials, from plastics to polymers, glasses or vitro-ceramics, to realize specific resistive deposits on a large range of values allowing to consider numerous applications.
With the new composite materials in many sectors of which aeronautics, a certain number of functions like the charge evacuation in case of shock or electrical charge accumulation are becoming crucial. IREIS studies coatings on composite permitting to fill in electric conductivity functions (shock from lightening resistance for example).
The electromagnetic shielding allows to reduce the electromagnetic field around an object by interposing a barrier between the source of the field and the object to protect. IREIS develops coatings permitting to protect the electronic equipment from electrical parasites. The magnetron cathodic pulverization allows to deposit metals and alloys on not conductive or little conductive materials.
The technology developed by IREIS (Magnetron Cathodic Pulverization) and the engineers expertise in terms of deposit process allows to obtain a large amount of resistivity on various substrates from a large number of metals and alloys. Those resistive elements will found application in antenna or absorption domains of the electromagnetic wave and for performance heating functions (can go from few Watt to 5W/cm² or even more depending on the supply conditions).
