Abstract: Forge Nano Inc. is a global leader in surface engineering and precision nano-coatings using commercial scale atomic layer deposition (ALD). ALD has been around for more than 50 years and yet only now is it becoming possible to scale these precision nano-coatings on powders to commercially relevant scale. This presentation will focus on the considerations in designing-for-scale to better understand the factors impacting scalability and how informed research and product development can lead to more market-driven ALD coatings on powders.
