Moreover, an international standardization of carbon films is planned as an ISO standard. The possible contents refer to the classification of the different film types following chemical-physical structure, deposition method or application area as well as the designation of the film types. Also film properties and testing methods are possible content items. If you are interested in this standardization please contact:
