Located in Louisville, Kentucky, Vacuum Depositing, Inc. (VDI, LLC) is a custom Roll to Roll metallizer of evaporative, sputtered and dielectric coatings.
Founded in 1971, VDI began by producing opaque metallized material for the graphic and packaging industries. As the demand for controlled density material for the window film industry grew in the 1970's, VDI became one of the early producers of controlled density evaporated aluminum material. VDI also helped in the development and early production of many industrial products, including: flexible printing plates, holographic material, microwave receptor, EMI shielding, printing ribbon and others.
VDI developed sputtering capabilities in the mid-1980s. The development expanded VDI's solar control and industrial products.
Due to recent investments in several ‘state-of-the-art’ Coaters and Slitters VDI has continued to be innovative, adding new products and services to its capabilities. VDI is respected throughout the industry as a leader in both quality and customer service.
In late 2012 VDI increased it’s global presence with the opening of a European Subsidiary / Sales Office - Vacuum Depositing (Europe) LTD, based in the UK - see the contact us page for details.
