Improve the Function & Durability of Critical Components

VaporTech’s functional PVD coatings are custom designed to make your product last longer, operate more efficiently due to lower friction, withstand high temperatures, and resist corrosion. This improved durability comes from a coating only microns thick, suitable for even the highest tolerance parts. VT Functional coatings are not just metal, but rather new materials made by reacting chromium, titanium, zirconium, or other metals with oxygen, nitrogen, or carbon. A VT functional coating can improve the hardness and durability of even the hardest, heat-treated steel. Common VT Functional coatings include, but are not limited to:

Chromium Nitride (CrN coatings)

Zirconium Nitride

Titanium Nitride (TiN coatings)

Titanium Carbide

Titanium CarboNitride

Titanium Aluminum Nitride

Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC)

VT Functional applications

Common applications include machine tooling, engine and chassis components, cutting tools, medical devices, energy production, and aerospace. Contact VaporTech to ask about our Coating Optimization Program, which enables us to customize a coating and process to meet specific functional requirements. We pre-load custom coating recipes into your VaporTech thin-film system and provide detailed coating user guides and on-site training to maximize the value of your investment. Our coating machines excel at applying titanium nitride (TiN) and chromium nitride (CrN) and other functional coatings.
