Ferrotec Collaborates with Metamaterial on Technology Solution Path

Metamaterial Works with Temescal Systems on Production System Solutions

LIVERMORE, CA, — April 07, 2021 — Ferrotec (USA) Corporation, the US subsidiary of Ferrotec Holdings Corp., a global supplier of materials, components, and precision system solutions, today announced that Metamaterial Inc., (“META”) (CSE: MMAT), has collaborated with Ferrotec to validate aspects of their NanoWeb® production methodology using Temescal systems. Ferrotec’s Temescal systems group was able to validate Metamaterial’s process methodology and provide them with a technology solution path from cost-effective entry to high volume thin film production.

META designs and manufactures advanced materials and performance functional films which are engineered at the nanoscale to control light and other forms of energy. NanoWeb® is a revolutionary transparent conductive film made of an invisible (sub-micron) metal mesh that can be fabricated onto any soft or rigid surface. Working with Ferrotec’s Temescal systems group, META was able to validate aspects of their NanoWeb® production methodology using the Temescal UEFC-6100 system, the premiere electron beam deposition system for high volume thin film production, then purchase and adapt META’s proprietary Rolling Mask Lithography® (RML) methodology to an entry-level Temescal FC-2800, matched to their current production volume needs.

“We rely on the expertise of Ferrotec and their ability to deliver high quality metallization processes in production scale for our design and wafer-scale manufacturing needs. Our customers in aerospace, for example, demand ultimate precision, and we depend on Ferrotec to meet these stringent requirements,” said George Palikaras, President and CEO of Metamaterial, Inc. “We selected Ferrotec through a competitive process and were impressed by their quality, professional support and flexibility. They worked closely with our team to meet META’s technical requirements and despite COVID-19 challenges they delivered on time.”

“Metamaterial’s technology has the potential to deliver breakthroughs across a range of applications and industries, and their unique technologies leverage thin films in transformative ways. Ferrotec’s Temescal systems are well-suited to deliver the precision and uniformity required by these exciting technologies,” said Imran Amirani, Director of Sales, Temescal Systems at Ferrotec. “We look forward to working with Metamaterial as their business volume grows and their production needs expand.”
