Types of PVD Coating – Functional, Decorative & Diamond-Like Carbon
VaporTech offers a variety of PVD coating colors for your company’s equipment and systems, so you receive what you want and need. Our types of CVD and PVD coating include: VT Decorative™, VT Functional™, and VT Diamond™.
CVD and PVD Coating Colors
VaporTech physical vapor deposition (PVD) and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD) thin-film coatings are designed to enhance the look, feel, functionality, and durability of your products. These coatings are not simply metal layers. Instead, they are compound materials that combine metal, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, or other elements into a customized coating that can be harder than case-hardened steel, and/or more scratch-resistant than hardened chrome.
Our different types of PVD coating colors range from stunning rich black to eco-friendly chrome to metallic blue. We can customize each color and its shade so it accurately portrays your company’s brand and vision. With coating thicknesses from nanometers to micrometers, high-tolerance parts can be coated with minimal effect on critical dimensions.
The clean alternative to hexavalent (Cr+6) chrome plating
Chromium is often used to create a desirable chrome finish. However, for many manufacturers, the cost, complexity, and toxic byproducts of traditional hexavalent chrome plating overshadow aesthetics. Replacing hexavalent chrome with another plating process often produces a surface finish with compromised durability or appearance. VaporTech thin-film deposition systems can deposit chrome with none of the toxic byproducts that must be managed with electroplated chrome.
