Add Value to Products with Functional or Decorative Coatings

VaporTech physical vapor deposition (PVD) and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD) thin-film coatings are designed to enhance the look, feel, function, and durability of your products. These coatings aren’t simply metal layers, they are compound materials that combine metal, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, or other elements into a coating that can be customized to be harder than case-hardened steel, be more scratch-resistant than hard chrome, and range in color from a rich black to an amazing choice of beautiful metallic shades. With coating thicknesses from nanometers to micrometers, high-tolerance parts can be coated with minimal effect on critical dimensions.

VT Decorative

VT Diamond

VaporTech diamond-like carbon finishes can be customized as either decorative or functional coatings with amazing durability and colors from graphite to black.

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.


VaporTech thin-film systems can deposit finishes that are up to


harder than plated chrome.
