Abstract : An apparatus was developed to perform experimental vapor phase coating. It is capable of plating many of the metals and ceramic materials now deposited by the vapor phase process, and, more importantly, is capable of producing alloys and composite materials. The apparatus obtains the closest possible physical control of the deposition conditions, while emphasizing versatility and ease and simplicity of operation, so as to become an excellent vehicle for the evaluation of both plating compounds and deposited coatings. A variety of coating tasks was also undertaken to demonstrate the flexibility of this apparatus. The necessary laboratory facilities and support equipment to operate, maintain, and service the apparatus, and also to conduct pre-deposition bench testing of potential plating compounds, were also included in the program.
