How does CVD work?

The CVD process begins with tanks containing an initiator material (red) and one or more monomers (purple and blue), which are gasses the building blocks of the desired polymer coating. These are vaporized, either by heating them or reducing the pressure and are then introduced into a vacuum chamber containing the material to be coated. The initiator helps to speed up the process in which the monomers link up in chains to form polymers on the surface of the substrate material.
