pvd coating process
PVD coating is take place in a vacuum chamber. Titanium / Titanium Aluminium / Chromium is vaporised by means of multi arc or magnetron sputtering. The positively charged Titanium / Titanium Aluminium / Chromium ions are mixed with nitrogen or argon gas to form a plasma. The positively charged Titanium / Titanium Aluminium / Chrominium plasma is attracted to the negatively charged workpiece, thereby forming a coating on the workpiece. The PVD coating exhibits unprecedented toughness, lubricity, uniformity, and is chemically more stable in comparison to the traditional ion plating method.
characteristics of pvd coating
PVD coating can be used on various materials, such as stainless steel, aluminium,iron, porcelain and certain types of PVC. Stainless steel is best recommended for PVD coating. Stainless steel will fade and oxidise overtime when exposed to the environment, humidity, and other factors.
However, stainless steel that has been PVD coated:
- Will not tarnish, oxidise or discolour in harsh sun, salt water or humid environments.
- Will be impervious to extended UV light exposure, with no flaking, cracking or discolouration.
- Will be available in a wide range of colours, surface patterns and finishes.
