VT-Functional coatings are not just metal, but rather new coatings made by reacting chromium, titanium, zirconium, or other metals with oxygen, nitrogen, or carbon. Our coatings are custom-designed to make products last longer, operate more efficiently due to lower friction, withstand high temperatures, and resist corrosion.


VaporTech coating machines excel at applying functional coatings, including titanium nitride (TiN), chromium nitride (CrN), and diamond-like carbon (DLC). VaporTech systems create functional coatings only microns thick, suitable for even the highest tolerance parts. These coatings are especially effective for engine parts, medical devices, firearms, tooling, and more.
