Q: What is PVD, and PVD coating ?
A: PVD – Physical Vapor Deposition – is a coating technology that allows depositing of a thin film onto many different kinds of base materials. During the process, different metals which can be deposited - like titanium, zirconium, and chrome – evaporate in a vacuum atmosphere. Due to kinetic energy and a potential difference between the products, ions move on the surface where they condense creating the desired coating.
The metal film is obtained by a complete physical process and therefore possesses higher technical characteristics than any other chemical or electro-chemical process. PVD coating is particularly recommended for all those innovative quality products which require high chemical and technical features (resistance to abrasion, scratches, and corrosion) and at the same time offers a wide choice of chromatic colors.
