Society of Vacuum Coaters Gains Affiliated Membership in the American Institute of Physics
As an AIP Affiliate, the SVC will be provided an opportunity to collaborate with complementary technical organizations and benchmark best practices as they strive to increase our value and relevance to our international base of stakeholders
On November 17 the American Institute of Physics (AIP) voted to endorse the Society of Vacuum Coaters’s application for Affiliated Membership in the AIP.
As an AIP Affiliate, the SVC will be provided an opportunity to collaborate with complementary technical organizations and benchmark best practices as they strive to increase our value and relevance to our international base of stakeholders, says Frank Zimone SVC Executive Director.
“We now have the opportunity to tap into an extensive network of professionals and services that were previously inaccessible to an organization of our size,” he says.
The SVC will be participating in the AIP Assembly of Society Officers meeting that will be held March 29 in Arlington, Virginia. SVC members will now have access to a comprehensive suite of insurance products that can be purchased through the American Physical Society Insurance Trust (APSIT).

MVRE is underutilized in the treatment of industrial wastewaters that are typical of metal fabricating and finishing industries. Increasing energy costs, rapidly decreasing freshwater resources, and growing sensitivity towards the environmental impact of industrial management practices are the driving forces in the development of more sustainable technology.
This overview takes a look at vacuum deposition technologies as processes that may be used to create coatings that can be substituted for or enhances the properties of electroplated coatings. Initially, this work discusses trends in metal finishing and environmental regulation.
After 10 years, Vapor Technologies says it has hit the mark with the world’s first true-black advanced “low-temperature arc vapor deposition” (LTAVD) coating.
