PVD/DLC Knife and Blade Coating Durability

PVD-coated knives’ durability and longevity contribute to their growing popularity with knife manufacturers and customers. Applying this thin layer of PVD or DLC coatings to knife components adds hardness to the entire surface, protecting parts from scratches and other forms of wear. Apply hard DLC knife coatings through plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD). During the DLC knife coating process, our DLC & PVD knife coating machines vaporize and condense molecules of various materials and gases in a thin layer on the surface of the knives or blades (including hair-clipper blades) being coated.

DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) Knife and Blade Coatings

Apply DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating to knives of all types and sizes. Coatings for knives adhere to a wide variety of materials and shapes. Using the PE-CVD process in a VaporTech® system ensures the DLC coating on your blades is applied evenly across components, providing durability and a smooth finish to your knives. Using a DLC & PVD knife coating machine from Vapor Technologies, Inc. (VaporTech®), your per-part knife coating costs are typically less than $1 for coating a typical part.
