Free Samples are available upon request for preliminary testing.

FTO Patterns can be custom made based on customer's requirements.

Specifications of TEC 8 glass:

  • Glass: Pilkington NSG TEC Glass TEC 8. TEC 15 (12-15 ohm/sq) and TEC 7 (7-8 ohm/sq), other types are available upon request.
    • TEC 7 offers the lowest resistivity value in the NSG TEC range. Combined with relatively low haze, it can be used for a wide range of applications.
    • TEC 15 is the best choice for applications requiring passive condensation control and thermal performance with low-emissivity and clear color-neutral appearance.
  • Glass Transition Temperature: 564°C (1,047°F ) for soda-lime glass substrate
  • Typical Dimensions: 1" x 1" (25 mm x 25 mm), 2" x 2", 4" x 4", 6" x 6", or can be customized to any size specified by the customer.
  • Glass thickness: 3.2 mm, FTO glass with other sizes are available upon request
  • Nominal FTO film thickness: 600 nm
  • Special Patterns: can be customized according to customer provided drawings.
  • Sheet resistance: 6-9 ohm/sq
  • Etching Capability: Laser etching or wet etching for detailed patterns.  Both techniques have a resolution of +/- 50um.
  • Visible Light Transmittance: >80% (80-81.5%)
  • UV Transmittance: >46%
  • Haze: 12%
  • Emissivity (EN 12898): 0.12
  • Maximum operating temperature: Although the FTO film can be heated up to 700°C, the soda lime glass (SLG) substrate has a glass transition temperature of 564°C. The recommended maximum operating temperature for FTO coated SLG substrates is up to 550°C.

    Applications for 6-9 Ohm/Sq FTO TEC 8 Glass

    High quality sputtered fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) films can be used as electrodes for thin film photovoltaic /solar cells (dye-sensitized cells, organic solar cells), LED display, electrochemical deposition, capacitors, Infrared detection, energy-saving windows, RFI/EMI shielding and other electro-optical and insulating applications. Fluorine doped tin oxide is relatively stable under atmospheric conditions, chemically inert, mechanically hard and abrasion tolerant, high-temperature resistant and has lower cost than indium tin oxide (ITO).

    FTO is well recognized as an attractive material because it is relatively stable under atmospheric conditions, chemically inert, mechanically hard, high-temperature resistant, and has a high tolerance to physical abrasion.

    Customer Testimonials

    Carlos Biaou, a PhD student at UC Berkeley worked with MSE Supplies to fabricate several hundred customized ITO and FTO substrates for his thesis research, and he had a very positive feedback on the products and services he received from MSE Supplies.

    • "The uniformity of the ITO and FTO layers were excellent, and the custom pattern I ordered was well formed."
    • "The variation in size from substrate to substrate is within the margins of errors I needed, so that's great too."
    • "I appreciate the great customer service and diligence you've shown in customizing my substrates."

    Dr. Selma Duhovi from MIT has used the ITO and FTO substrates provided by MSE Supplies for smart glass application, and has been very satisfied with the products and services provided by MSE Supplies.

    • "The FTO and ITO glass slides you sent me work GREAT!"
    • "The substrates work really well for smart glass application."
    • "The experiments have gone well!"

    "Synthesis of CuFe2O4 Film on FTO Substrate by Flame and Furnace. All samples were prepared on fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) coated-glass substrates (TEC 7, 78/sq, MSE Supplies).The FTO substrates were cleaned in acetone, IPA, and DI water, with sonication for 15 min, and were dried by an air gun. The CuFe2O4 precursor was prepared by the solgel method and was spin-coated on FTO glass for both annealing methods at 3000 rpm for 60 s."
