VaporTech® physical vapor deposition (PVD) systems coat faucets, showerheads, doorknobs, and other home hardware products worldwide. Our smaller, budget-friendly PVD coating systems mean even smaller manufacturers can benefit from fixture finishing in-house to improve quality control, save time, and provide a high ROI. VaporTech coatings are less than 1/100th the thickness of a human hair (usually less than 1 micron), keeping product features intact. If you want to add PVD coatings to your components, contact our expert team and see how our PVD coatings for stainless steel, copper, bronze, & chrome can enhance your products today.

Benefits of PVD Fixture Finishes


Home hardware, including kitchen & bath fixtures and door and window hardware, comes in a wide array of materials, colors, and geometries, making PVD coating a great choice for manufacturers of these products. VaporTech R&D scientists offer 20 standard colors and optimize coatings for use in our VaporTech systems to match the desired decorative finish (or legacy finishes). Colors can include stainless steel, copper, bronzes, chrome, golds (including rose gold), black, and even blues and purples. Our systems coat products with the latest black PVD coatings and a safer PVD alternative to chrome. Our PVD machines for stainless steel, copper, chrome, and other color options make your home fixtures stand out and provide a higher return on investment (ROI).


Our durable/decorative fixture finishes are scratch- and wear-resistant, defy corrosion, and are so thin they are suitable for high-tolerance parts. Our decorative PVD coating machines can deposit finishes that are up to 3 times harder than plated chrome on your faucets, showerheads, doorknobs, door locks, product components, and other home fixtures. PVD finishes provide long-lasting beauty to your stainless-steel sink or chrome shower faucet.
