What is PVD Coating?
Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is a high-tech coating application used to manufacture high-end consumer products, jewelry and medical products. The PVD coatings are hard, thin film coatings, deposited in a vacuum chamber from a physical source, as opposed to a chemical one. The coating process is performed by Sputtering, where atomized material from a solid target is transferred to the product by energetic bombardment of its surface layers by ions or neutral particles. Magnetron sputtering is an extremely flexible coating technique that can be used coat virtually any material.

Advantages of PVD coating with other coating systems
. 50% more corrosion protection than standard coatings
. Much harder surface, much softer touch feeling
. Resistance to salt test 300 hours (200 hours European Standard)
. Extra strength to chemicals
. Long-lasting non-fading colors
. High resistance to sudden temperature changes
. 100% environment management according to coating method
