Sono-Tek Expands In-House Lab Testing Facilities
Expanded lab services include a new scanning electron microscope.
Milton, NY — Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK) has completed expanding its laboratory testing facility, located at the corporate headquarters in Milton, NY. The recent acquisition of new equipment, including a scanning electron microscope (SEM) for onsite analysis of coatings performed in the lab, led to some

reorganization and physical expansion of the facility itself in order to provide a better workflow for customers and visitors in addition to some increased elbow room.

The newly installed equipment, and particularly the SEM microscope, enables Sono-Tek to gauge process variables by providing immediate onsite analysis of coatings that require very precise deposition characteristics, such as photoresist onto MEMs, fuel cell coatings, medical implantable device coatings and other nanomaterial coatings. In addition, a new corona surface treatment has been installed to better prepare substrates for improved surface tension

characteristics prior to coating. The acquisition of at least one more surface treatment tool is planned in the future.
